Jordan Suecof (born December 2, 1983), known primarily by his alias Infinity, is an American producer. He is best known for his work with artists like Mary J. Blige, R. Kelly, Ciara, Jacob Latimore, and Ludacris.[1][2]

Career[edit]

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; first stop Orlando. 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 also won a Grammy for Best R&B Album with over 3 million copies sold. That track also 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 also won the Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative Performance. Unfortunately, Jordan never received credit for that cut. Then destiny had a new address. ATL.

In 2009, Infinity produced with the Backstreet Boys (shattered). Then came R Kelly's Echo and Banging the Headboard. Flipside to Ludacris', 2010, I Know You Got a Man with Flo Rida. Battle of the Sexes album was certified gold. Next step, Ciara in stilettos, and 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", immediately garnered over 500k views on YouTube. Which then 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 highly 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.
