Darren takes some time off and starts writing new music.
Working almost accidentally at first with friend and hardcore, underground electronic artist Robert Conley (www.specificus.com), Hayes began the process of writing new music without really realizing it. During a stay at Hayes' San Francisco waterside home, Conley was constantly working on new tracks for himself in the spare bedroom. “He would be tinkering away on the keyboard," Darren recalls, “and although I had told anyone who would listen that I was not interested in writing or making an album, every time I walked past his room I found myself singing along to his tracks."
