It was the first time Max Colombie took control, the album was co-produced and mixed by Leo Abrahams.'Entity' includes the tracks "Princes", "Undress" and "Strange Entity". It was received reviews in Belgium and abroad, including praise from Drowned in Sound and Les Inrocks, went double platinum in Belgium.'The Game', the first single off his second album, was released in July 2016. It peaked at n° 14 on the Hype Machine chart. In 2015, after extensive touring across Europe, including a support tour for Roisin Murphy and the Wolf sold out Sportpaleis and Heineken Music Hall, with a total of 27000 tickets.
In 2016, after headlining Pukkelpop festival, he sold out both Ancienne Belgique and Paradiso in just 4 minutes. He announced new shows at Sportpaleis and Heineken Music Hall after. In an interview with Pi-Pôle, Max revealed the meaning behind his band's name: "Oscar is a name I like – it's poetic and light, and wolf is the dark animal that comes out at night and howls to the full moon, moon stands for solitude and coldness. It's bright and dark together, because that's how I see my music – as a balance between light and dark." Official website
The Infinity or 300 Spear Street is a mixed-use residential condominium development in the Rincon Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, California consisting of 2 high-rise towers and 2 low-rise buildings. The four buildings contain 650 residential units; the complex is the first phase of a massive residential development encompassing two city blocks. The two residential projects, 300 Spear and 201 Folsom, were proposed by Tishman Speyer Properties and designed by Heller Manus Architects; the San Francisco Planning Commission was scheduled to give its vote on the two projects on June 26, 2003, but this was delayed until September. The two projects were given approval by the Planning Commission in spite of heavy opposition. However, 300 Spear and 201 Folsom still needed approval from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in order for the project to progress. A few months the Board of Supervisors gave initial approval to the projects; the project was given final approval by San Francisco's Board of Supervisors on February 4, 2004.
The residential complex consists of four buildings with one 8 and one 9-story midrise, 37 and 42-story highrise towers. The highrise towers are named The Infinity I and The Infinity II. One of the towers, the Infinity I, rises 350 contain 37 floors; the taller highrise, the Infinity II, rises 450 contain 42 floors. The 650-unit complex containing these four buildings is bounded by Main Street to the southwest, Folsom Street to the northwest and Spear Street to the northeast; the complex is one block inland from the San Francisco Bay. Pricing for the units range from $700k-$5 million. 300 Spear was designed by San Francisco's Heller Manus Architects. The 820-unit complex featured a garden on top of the midrise towers and all four buildings were connected together; the developer decided to hire Arquitectonica to revamp the design of 300 Spear along with Heller Manus Architects. The four buildings of the complex were split apart and the sky gardens were gone. In addition, the complex had its color changed to a blue-green color which adapted a simplified concrete structure with curving walls of glass curtain wall and metal.
The number of units was reduced from 820 to 650 before construction of 300 Spear began. The highrise towers rise above the earlier buildings in between the Embarcadero waterfront and Spear Street, making the complex prominent from places like the San Francisco Bay. Along with the Millennium Tower and One Rincon Hill to the west and south they will create a new highrise neighborhood in the South of Market district. Construction started in April, 2005 when a surface parking lot was demolished to make way for the complex. Midway through the excavation process, a buried 125 ft ship was found just to the south of Spear Street 20 ft below street level on fill, once a ship-breaking dock owned by Charles Haer; the buried ship was identified as the 1818 whaling ship The Candace.

Infinity (K-Space album)
Infinity is the third album by British-Siberian experimental music ensemble K-Space. It was released in the United States in August 2008 by Ad Hoc Records, an affiliate of Recommended Records, was a new type of CD, different every time it is played."Infinity" will not work in a standard CD player and requires a computer to play it. Each time the CD is played, supplied software remixes source material located on the disc and produces a new 20-minute musical piece; the CD cannot be paused or fast-forwarded, there are no tracks to select. The only controls available are "PLAY" and "STOP"; the music produced by the CD is electroacoustic improvisation, rooted in Tuvan shaman ritual music. K-Space was formed in 1996 after a series of study trips to Siberia by Scottish percussionist Ken Hyder and English multi-instrumentalist Tim Hodgkinson, they were exploring the improvisational and musical aspects of shamanism when they met up with Gendos Chamzyryn, a shaman and musician from Tuva. Hyder and Chamzyryn formed K-Space to experiment with improvised music rooted in the Tuvan shamanic ritual.
Their second album, Going Up was a sound collage of K-Space performances plus field recordings of shamanic rituals and superimposed on one another. Infinity extended Going Up's production process and made it dynamic to produce a new mix with each play; the idea for the Infinity project began when Tim Hodgkinson started describing some of the implicit rules that K-Space use during their live improvisations. It occurred to him that these rules could be embedded in software that would produce interesting variations on the original process. Hodgkinson discussed his ideas with Andy Wilson, a software designer and webmaster of German krautrock band Faust's website, The Faust Pages, they investigated ways to select sound files within different contexts and to use them in different ways to produce a new stream of music with each play. Wilson set about developing "metacompositional" software that compiles and sequences deconstructed fragments of sound files; these sound sources were provided by K-Space and include field recordings, throat singing, various percussion and reed instruments.
The number of audio files available were restricted by the size limitations of the CD format, but when combined and permutated, they would create an infinite number of different "compositions", hence the album title Infinity. The audio files are categorized into a number of groups, including acoustic, solo and loops. A single audio file can be used in many different ways by varying, for example, dynamic levels and duration of play. For a particular piece, for example, the software might select any two of seven acoustic files and play them together for x seconds, adding one of four environmental files after y seconds; the sound source selection process the software uses is not random, but algorithmic based on scores Hodgkinson wrote for the project. Each time "PLAY" is pressed, the software selects a new score which it uses to construct a new piece of music; the score consists of a set of audio file selection criteria, which vary depending on what has happened before. While there are a finite number of scores on the CD, there are many different interpretations of each score.
Each play lasts about 20 minutes, a time span, chosen with the shamans of Tuva in mind, how each of their rituals produces a different journey. The 20-minute period of intense music was chosen to deviate from the standard music CD playing times, albeit an "infinite" number of different 20-minute plays. In October 2008 the software developed for this project was made available to anyone interested in working with it. Wilson prepared a continuous play version of Infinity for the K-Space exhibition in the Stuttgart Ethnographic Museum. John Cavanagh of The Herald in Glasgow said in a review of the album that though he knew each listening was the result of a "computer triggered sequence", it always sounded like a "cohesive musical work, as though it was meant to be that way". "Infinity" must be played on an Apple Mac computer. The computer software required to play the music is included on the CD; the computer must have a CD drive, a 200 MHz or greater processor, at least 1.5Gb of RAM, a sound card or stereo interface.

Jordan Suecof, known by his alias Infinity, is an American producer. He is best known for his work with artists like Mary J. Blige, R. Kelly, Jacob Latimore, Ludacris. Signature "Scream King", Jordan "Infinity" Suecof, was born in Connecticut. Drums were an immediate attachment and rocked on to master all things musical beginning in 1983, he began the indelible processing of making sound matter. From the bass-driven beat of the Beatles to the radiating wail of the rock era, Jordan wound down Led Zeppelin, Billy Joel and The Who. Rock warped into metal—and metal into mayhem as hip hop urban took a giant leap forward on music's center stage. Graduation at 17, Jordan GPS'd his way to the Dirty South, his first placement came in 2005. At 21 he had a #1 Adult AC chart topper that led to the Grammy winning album The Breakthrough by Mary J. Blige; as producer of Take Me As I Am, the album won a Grammy for Best R&B Album with over 3 million copies sold. That track garnered an ASCAP award and major media buzz for Jordan as he took home the props for R&B Song of the Year.
Atlantic Records took notice. Fast-track to Lupe Fiasco's album Food and Liquor. In 2008, Jordan's co-produced DayDreamin which won the Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative Performance. Jordan never received credit for that cut. Destiny had a new address. ATL. In 2009, Infinity produced with the Backstreet Boys. Came R Kelly's Echo and Banging the Headboard. Flipside to Ludacris', 2010, I Know. Battle of the Sexes album was certified gold. Next step, Ciara in stilettos, Yeah I Know that made the Basic Instinct album. Infinity wound up producing Jacob Latimore on Jive records, their explosive first collaboration "Like Em All" garnered over 500k views on YouTube. Which became the official 1st single and shot to #6 on 106 N Park & #11 on Disney and introduced Diggy Simmons as an artists to the world. In 2014, Infinity has leaped major boundaries from the title track and single off of R&B singer Tank's album Stronger to the anticipated new Avicii album "Stories" in which he helped produce & write "The Nights".
"The Nights" surfaced online where it hit number one on Hype Machine before being released via FIFA 15
