All Night Long (The Orion Correlation Remix)
I did an old-skool rave remix for Aezron’s new Play It Straight EP. Out now through Voidance Records on all your favourite streaming platforms and stores.
More to come,
My scoring partner, Lost & Found, and I recently worked on the soundtrack for a tech-noir tactics video game called All Walls Must Fall from inbetweengames, a studio founded by former YAGER veterans who worked on titles such as Dead Island 2 and Spec Ops: The Line.
Take a listen to what we’ve been up to with a tune called “Zugzwang” from the All Walls Must Fall soundtrack:
All Walls Must Fall will be available on Windows, Mac and Linux as a closed alpha in May 2017. The game is set in Berlin, 2089 where the Cold War never ended. You can back All Walls Must Fall on Kickstarter now!
As well as composition and production, we also took care of the mixing and mastering of the track for the game. If you’re interested in seeing what else we can do then take a look at our TV, film, and video game scoring services.
Techno and time travel,
After a six month long battle with depression and a several day delay with the distributor, my debut tech house EP is finally available for you to purchase or stream. Today the record is out on iTunes and Bandcamp globally, and over the next few weeks it will become available in 300+ stores such as HMV, Beatport, Google Play and Amazon MP3, the Divine Debris EP will also become available on a lot of streaming services like Spotify, Beats Music and Rdio to name a few. There’s a limited run of vinyl planned, so if you would like to be kept in the loop regarding that then please sign up to The Orion Correlation email newsletter.
Lost & Found has contributed an amazing remix of Character Assassination to the record, it’s the icing on the cake for Divine Debris. Overall I am really proud of how Divine Debris turned out, it’s come a long way since the premiere of Character Assassination at the Ministry Of Sound Club in London and having tracks being played out at a few festivals by various DJs to now being invited to go play out at festivals in France and getting on IMDB for scoring a short independent film. It’s been a pretty surreal few months just in terms of music, I’ve no idea what will happen next with myself and music, and I like it that way because my life before choosing to leave my ex was predictable at best, I wondered for a long while if I had made the right decision, now I’m certain that I did. I have changed a lot as a person since January– but some people don’t. Know what I mean?
Over and out, dance like there’s no tomorrow.
“Carry On Packing” is the final track preview from myself, Hammy Havoc, as The Orion Correlation from the debut Divine Debris EP due out on September 5th 2014.
This is an energetic track made whilst packing boxes to transition into a new and better phase of life.
“Back Of My Hand” is an experimental tech house track comes from a pained place of knowing someone like the back of your hand and realizing in advance how they are going to let you down as they always do.
The bass on this is ultra low so make sure you listen on a decent pair of audio monitors or club system otherwise you’re going to miss a lot of what “Back Of My Hand” is; this is a track you primarily feel rather than hear. Hope it gets you in the pit of the stomach.
My friend Lost & Found played The Long Way Round in a great set he played on USD.fm a few weeks ago. I’ve always been hugely into JRPGs, SNES, NES, Sega Genesis/MegaDrive, and of course the Game Boy Color, so any chiptune sounds like this always really catch my ear. Chiptune is something that’s very minimalist and a real discipline.
The Long Way Round is about not always getting what you want when you want it, but getting it eventually even if it takes a little while; it’s a track about patience with human beings, something I’ve not always had but recently learned. There’s even a hint of remorse in there, there were sang vocals on this track from both myself and another, but yesterday I stopped speaking to the other vocalist due to our very different outlook on life and some twisted words after a decade of friendship, so this track is still very much a work-in-progress, but nonetheless I hope you get your groove on to it.
Following on from Hammy Havoc’s debut release as The Orion Correlation (a remix of Love Clouds through his label, Voidance Records), Hammy is quickly following up with a sneak peek at another record of his from the Divine Debris EP, this time featuring entirely original work entirely composed, played and produced by the man himself. Character Assassination was premiered exclusively last night at Ministry of Sound Club in London, UK by DJ Flyboi F, now you can take a listen if you weren’t there!
“Character Assassination is the first track of my debut EP as The Orion Correlation, gently easing people into the dark subject matter really. Divine Debris is literally a collage of the pieces of my life from the last six months since I chose to leave my ex-fiancee for reasons you’ll find out in a few upcoming interviews. This is all coming from a pretty dark place where I’ve felt a little lost at times, though I finally feel as if I’ve reclaimed my identity as to who I was before I ever met her and even before that. I got quite experimental in the months that followed as I moved out of social isolation and back into it several times to just gently disconnect from a world that had become quite alien to me and reconnect with who I am. The breakup left me with three questions: “what did you do to us?”, “what did you do to me?” and “what did I do to me?”, and that disjointed concept is reflected in my use of sprechgesang vocals and inspiration drawn from musique concrète. As promised, I’m giving you a window into the production of the EP and currently figuring out the technicalities of streaming myself in the studio so I can really give you a view into my world; watching me score commercials and movies might be fun! The Divine Debris EP as a whole is electronic music, it’s mainly tech house but with a bit of chiptune too, though it could also be described as IDM. It’s the most authentic music I’ve ever worked on, it’s raw emotion and an auditory document of how I felt in the months after that point in my life, there’s a lot of dark emotions and a lot of positive ones; this is a journey through the underworld and back into daylight. I’ll be playing some shows across the rest of 2014 including live sets with a full band and as a DJ with Lost & Found, fellow co-founder of Voidance Records– he’s also got a treat for you relating to the Divine Debris EP. Can you guess what it is yet?” – Hammy Havoc, The Orion Correlation
