“I Can’t Be Drowned” is a dynamic anthem that empowers the listener to stand up for themselves, to not let anyone take what is rightfully theirs. Featuring powerful, forceful vocals by Mia Mormino, “I Can’t Be Drowned” is sung with the type of fury that’s relatable to anyone that’s faces obstacles head-on. Hamster’s style of dexterous, cinematic production adds strength to Mia’s resolve. Indie-electro beats compliment Mia’s melodic vulnerability as she finds her inner determination and power.
“Can’t Be Drowned” was produced recorded and mixed by LA music producer Raz Klinghoffer
Although he appeared in the LA music scene in 2016, Hamster has been bubbling up in the music industry for nearly a decade as a respected producer. Hamster’s songs are an organic, groovy mixture of experimental electronic, indie and pop genres overlayed with gorgeous vocals. Hamster’s debut music video, “City Limits,” went viral, peaking at #8 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart (#46 globally) with over 1.4 million views on YouTube. His last single, “Invincible,” was heavily supported by Spotify including landing on the following official curated lists: New Music Friday Norway, Hits Don’t Lie, New Music Friday Denmark, Uuden Musiikin Lista (NMF Finland), New Music Friday Canada, and New Music Now.
Hamster has also received 14K+ Shazams from his recent TV placements (Netflix ‘Insatiable’, NBC’s ‘Shades of Blue’) and was also recently featured on Apple Music’s “Best of the Week” playlist.
It seems like everyone and their husband are music producers these days. Since there’s no accrediting bodies for music producers, mix engineers, or recordings studios (which means certificates of training are not required), unfortunately for all of us, it’s perfectly okay to go around claiming you are one even when you lack the expertise and experience. Unlike other professional fields (e.g. lawyers or doctors) that need to be accredited and certified, working in the music industry requires nothing of that sort. The challenge is figuring out where to invest your money.
