Although he recently appeared in the EDM scene in 2016, Hamster has been in the music industry for over a decade as a prolific rock artist. The pull of dance music eventually led him to relocate to Los Angeles, where he has flourished as a DJ and producer; this ability to seamlessly switch to a very different corner of music is but a testament to Hamster‘s inherent talents and wealth of experience. When “City Limits” went naturally viral, peaking at #8 on Spotify‘s US Viral Chart and over 1.3 million views on the official video, Hamster officially entered into the realm of rising stars in EDM. Additionally, Hamster‘s music has been featured on TV, including his track “We Never Know Anymore” on Netflix‘s satirical teen drama “Insatiable” and “People Get Ready” on the popular series “Shades of Blue” starring Jennifer Lopez. “Shining Through” is a standout example of Hamster’s style: an organic, groovy mixture of experimental electronic, indie and pop genres overlayed with gorgeous vocals. His knack for creating music that resonates with listeners from all walks of life ensures that we’ll be hearing much more from Hamster in the near future!
