HYPETRAK TV: Mayer Hawthorne – A Journey Into the Unknown

A life inspired from the city enriched with some of the greatest music innovators of our time might explain why Mayer Hawthorne has a special sound that's unrivaled. Mayer Hawthorne is essentially in a league of his own with sound influences stemming from J Dilla, Curtis Mayfield, Barry White and Isaac Hayes that emerge into this soulful harmony when he sings. HYPETRAK TV had the honor of catching up with the talented singer/songwriter/producer and examine the process behind his music, where he draws inspiration from and get the story behind his intriguing album in which he titled Where Does This Door Go.
