Emile Haynie — We Fall
≈ Haynie učinil zvukově zajímavé album; krásné orchestrální prvky opravdu vyniknou. Písně ukazují rozsah: od silné, pozitivní a klavírem řízené snové atmosféry ke steelce, všechny písně mají zřetelné bicí. Mezi velkými jmény nejsou taková, co by zastínila HAYNIEHO jako umělce. Album je určeno k poslechu v jednom kuse; odliv a příliv písní peripetie vztahů nenarušují, všechny jsou řešeny lyricky Hayniem a zpívané všemi jeho přátely. Grammy–winning producer (Kid Cudi, Eminem, Lana Del Rey) who started with sample–based rap tracks and graduated to large–scale pop recordings.

By Rebecca Milner
≈ Emile Haynie is getting by with a little help from his friends. The songwriter and producer responsible for monumental hits such as Lana Del Rey’s Born to Die and Kanye West’s Runaway fantasy has called upon his all–star Rolodex to shape his own heart–wrenching confessional. Written over a span of six months while holed up in the infamous Chateau Marmont, Haynie’s debut We Fall is an embittered journey of the collapse of his long–term relationship — a jarring experience that inspired the New Yorker to put pen to paper. Reflecting on impossible romance, Lana’s voice coos of desperation, echoing the words “I’m lonely” (“Wait for Life”) while Brian Wilson and Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt aid Haynie in putting the pieces of a remorseful soul back together with vibrant string work (“Falling Apart”).
≈ Among the other illustrious guest spots, which include Lykke Li, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rufus Wainwright, and Father John Misty’s J. Tillman, some of the most stabbing tracks are those that feature Haynie’s own wiry vocals — including the disillusioned number “Dirty World”, a wallowing examination of attractive flaws and the excuses we make for those we love. His inner anguish may look brooding on paper, but the cathartic orchestration of the album acts as a vehicle for closure and allows the prolific songwriter to come out clean on the other side of heartbreak, all with a little help from his friends. :: http://blaremagazine.com/
Artist Biography by Andy Kellman
≈ Emile Haynie broke into the music industry with sample–based rap productions and broadened his reach as a producer and songwriter of large–scale mainstream pop. A native of Buffalo, New York, he lived in the same neighborhood as producer Cochise, a mentor. Haynie built a home studio and dropped out of high school during his freshman year. In 2001, a few years after a move to the Sunnyside neighborhood of New York City's Queens borough, he remixed A.G. & Party Arty's "RUGD" and produced C–Ray Walz & Plain Pat's "Gear Abby." During the next several years, Haynie, known simply as Emile, stacked credits for the likes of Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and Rhymefest, whose Blue Collar was led by "All I Do," a track Haynie produced with Cochise. Slaughterhouse, Ice Cube, and close associate Kid Cudi were also among the artists Haynie supported during the latter half of the 2000s.
≈ Haynie entered the 2010s busier than ever. He produced the bulk of Cudi's Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager and tracks by Tinie Tempah ("Obsession") and Kanye West ("Runaway"). Strong early connections made with Detroit rappers such as Proof and Obie Trice paved the way to work on Eminem's Recovery, which won a Grammy the following February for Best Rap Album. Starting in 2012, Haynie's work was done mostly for pop and rock albums. Among his highlights from this year through 2014 were Lana Del Rey's Born to Die, Bruno Mars' "Gorilla" and "Locked Out of Heaven," the Rolling Stones' "Doom and Gloom," Drake's "Too Much," Eminem's "Headlights," and a handful of cuts from FKA twigs' LP1. The producer eventually signed to Interscope as a solo artist and recorded his debut, We Fall, during the first half of 2014 while holed up in a room at Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont. Inspired by the end of an intense romantic relationship, Haynie made the album with help from dozens of fellow musicians across generations, such as Randy Newman, Brian Wilson, Colin Blunstone, Annie Clark, and several previous collaborators, including Del Rey, Jeff Bhasker, and Florence Welch. It was released in February 2015.

≈ You may not recognize his name, but Emile Haynie has been producing and writing great records for years. Starting with his first love, hip–hop, he worked with Kanye West, Eminem, and Kid Cudi. More recently, he’s garnered lots of attention and accolades for his work with Lana Del Rey, Bruno Mars, Fun, and FKA Twigs. Looking for a change of pace and scenery, Haynie left his Chelsea studio behind and set up shop at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles for six months to work on We Fall, his debut solo album. Guests would stop by at all hours to write and record in room 39. ≈ The list of collaborators is long (and impressive), and old friends Del Rey, Nate Ruess, Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow), Lykke Li, Rufus Wainwright, and Mark Ronson (on bass) make appearances. But the more unexpected artists are the most notable, especially Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson and L.A.’s own Randy Newman. Haynie has made a sonically interesting album; the beautiful orchestral elements really stand out. The songs show range: From strong, upbeat and piano–driven to dreamy, atmospheric soundscapes, they all feature the distinct drums that he is known for. The big names don’t overshadow Haynie as an artist. We Fall is meant to be heard as one piece; the ebb and flow of the songs are the ups and downs of a relationship gone wrong, tackled lyrically by Haynie and sung by all of his friends. :: http://www.style.com/
