New Track: Ocean

21. November 2009 15:33 by Hamst3r in Tracks

It’s been a while – a few months since the last track – but now I’m back with some uplifting chillout for that ass. So sit your keister down and relax, cause it’s about to get fed some zen.

The overall tone of this track is airy and light. The track is lead by the traditional Indian combo of Sitar and Tabla, resting on top of a hip hop beat, a simple bass guitar and several layers of ambience. Also within the mix are Russian vocals sung by my friend Larissa.

Anyways, check it out:

Download: THA – Ocean (ft. Larissa) (right click, save as)

or stream it on THA Radio.

Enjoy!

New Track: Astral Projection

24. August 2009 15:39 by Hamst3r in Tracks

This tune is a big change of pace from the last track. Where the last one was slow and somber, this one is upbeat and carefree sounding.

It was also written while people were watching via a live video stream. I’m going to be doing this more often, so if you’d like to see what goes on behind the scenes when I’m making a track, check out the live stream page HERE.

To find out when I’m broadcasting, follow or friend me on Twitter, Myspace, Facebook or Friendfeed. I’ll post a link when I start and then post the MP3 when I’m done.

I’ll also be uploading recorded bits of the video to Youtube after the live feed, for anyone who missed out. :)

Anyways, here’s the track that was put together during the feed:

Download: THA – Astral Projection (right click, save as)

or stream it on THA Radio.

Enjoy!

Yet another new track: Discovery!

27. March 2009 16:19 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I was in the mood for some 80’s synthpop last night, so I sat down, picked the tackiest sounds I had and made this:

Download: THA – Discovery (1986) (right click, save as)

or stream it on THA Radio.

I’m really fond of that 80’s sound – It just has a magical quality to it.

I haven’t thought of what style of song to do next yet, but it will probably be something more organic.

Enjoy! :)

New Track: Mirror's Edge - Still Alive Remix

4. December 2008 18:27 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Hey!

Got something special for you here. It’s a drum and bass remix of the song, “Still Alive” by Lisa Miskovsky for the Mirror’s Edge soundtrack!

Check it out!

This was original for a remix competition, but I’ve created a higher quality mix with a few refinements and have added the MP3 to THA sites: THA Radio

You can also download the new higher quality track here:

New Track: Salaryman

12. November 2008 18:31 by Hamst3r in Tracks

 

 

 

 

Hey! :D

Got a new track for you here. The track is about the pencil-pushing wage-slaves of Japan who grind their lives away for their paycheck to the point that they have essentially no life outside of constant work.

If you check out Youtube you can see many videos of these salarymen in a complete daze, sleeping on the ground, futilely attempting to walk up the downwards escalator and so on. This is the common Japanese businessman.

This song is a somber trip in to comatose existence of one such salaryman. He has a cat, he likes pachinko, he has a couple fetishes and he’s been contemplating various methods of suicide. Yes, there are lyrics. :)

You can stream the track on THA Radio.

Or download the track:

Hamster Alliance – Salaryman.mp3

Also, here are the lyrics: THA-salaryman.txt

Enjoy!
