New Track: Swindler's Skank

16. January 2016 12:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

There's something really alluring about Jazz, Blues and Folk music. It's just got a sort of magic to it that I love, and like with all music, I especially like when it comes with a twist. I have a real fondness for the music of Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Howlin' Wolf and Tom Waits. This is basically me trying something out in that playground.

What we've got here is some quite gravelly vocals about a roaming criminal atop a bouncy instrumental. It's got a catchy chorus too.

New Track: Explosive Heat Death

26. October 2015 16:55 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Ready to GET HYPE? You better be. Hyped up for mean guitar riffs and Latin piano! Err, I mean, for big Jazz brass and a saxophone solo! Or uh, a vaguely exotic sounding clarinet and a shotgun sound effect! Actually, just get ready for all of it, as it's all here in Explosive Heat Death.

Taking inspiration from stuff like Progressive Rock and Jazz, there's a lot going on in this one.

New Track: Half Past

29. April 2010 14:49 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I like jazz, a lot and this is an attempt at a particular style of jazz. It’s got a vibraphone, a trumpet, two guitars, an upright bass and some drums. I didn’t add any big beats or synths to this one. I also didn’t crush the shit out of the mix.

So yeah, it’s chillaxed and it’s jazzy and I’m happy with it, particularly the trumpet.

New Track: Corona

2. March 2010 14:57 by Hamst3r in Tracks

This is the final version of the track that was written on camera below.

It’s still an upbeat jazzy electronic pop thing, only now it has a more dynamic flow and some ideas pulled from Trance. :)

THA Studio Sessions #1 - Corona

1. March 2010 15:12 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Hey!

I’ve started a series of videos called “THA Studio Sessions” which are about my music writing process. Basically, you can watch me write a track from start to finish. Clearly, not the most exciting thing in the world, but possibly beneficial to those of you wondering how it all goes down.

The first installment of this series is a track codenamed, “Corona”, a sort of upbeat jazzy electronic pop track. The video is about 4 hours and the track is mostly done, only needing some additional mixing and duration added.
