Ivan Ives - 8mm (THA Mix)

23. May 2014 10:23 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I don't remix music very often, but I've done more remixes than usual in the last few years. Here's another one!

What has transpired here is that I've taken the vocal from the laid-back Ives track 8mm and set it to an energetic glitch hop inspired beat. Big booms, big basses, super saws, blips, bleeps, plucks, tiny vocal chops, snippets of slap bass, and other such bits of nonsense, all mashed together with Ivan Ives' rapping as the central component.

This track may appear on an Ives album release in the future, but you can listen to it right now via the Youtube video embedded below.

New Track: Departures

2. April 2014 07:06 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Flexing my indie rock muscles this time, with some bouncy guitars and toy instruments on top of a slammin' 4/4 drum beat. That happens later in the track though. Before that, we dive into a nice bed of ambient guitars, commodore 64 noises, and music box melodies in a 6/8 time signature.

There's a lot of stuff going on in this track, it goes places.

Empire of Sock: Episode 2

17. January 2014 01:17 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Barfquestion? Exactly. That's right, I've written the score for the animated series "Empire of Sock" by Dr.Barfquestion. He doesn't claim to be a doctor, I just like prefixing things with "Dr."

The first video in the series used two pieces I had already written titled "Everything Is Chill In Silent Hill" and "Rupture". The second installment in the series, which is embedded below, also makes use of "Rupture" as well as a new piece titled Exitium Aeternus.

I have it on good authority that the third installment in the series will make further use of Exitium Aeternus...and by good authority I mean intertwined weasels with bloodied mouths dripping through the cracks of my bedroom ceiling like ghastly vapors. I trust everything they say to me.

 

The new track can be downloaded here: THA-exitiumaeternus_eos.mp3

Enjoy!

New Track: Neon Glow

27. November 2013 03:45 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Doing my pop music thing again with big vocals and catchy melodies. Also trying out a more breathy voice and some falsetto layers for the verses. All this poptasticness is on top of some harsh grinding synths and a thick 808 beat.

There There's also a bit of a sci-fi theme going on with the lyrics.

New Track: The Stranger

29. October 2013 22:25 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Be wary of the man with no name. You will recognize him by the drum machine on his hip. He's also carrying a saxophone, a bouzouki, a violin, a grand piano - not sure how he gets that one up on his horse - a slide guitar, a ukulele, a waterphone, a vibraslap, a didgeridoo, and a few other assorted odds and ends. The dude is kind of weird, I mean I don't know, just be careful if he rides in to your town.

This track is a mish-mash of sounds, but I think they work together quite well. What started off as a mostly Greek Folk music sounding piece turned into hip hop, got darker and kept taking on new non-Greek instruments until "The Stranger" happened.
