About the Event

A tenacious, hard working and naturally gifted artist and tastemaker, Archie Hamilton is at⁣ the forefront of a new generation bringing fresh energy to the underground scene. Over the⁣ last few years he’s had a remarkable ascent up the ranks to become one of the most⁣ respected UK artists in his field. A music lover with eclectic tastes, Archie works across⁣ many of the facets that comprise house music. He is highly regarded as a dynamic selector,⁣ an accomplished producer and an influential label owner who has spent 10 years managing⁣ A&R for his two outlets: Moscow and Moss Co. His professional approach has led to⁣ appearances at many of the world’s key underground venues, including DC10, and his⁣ commitment to the studio has produced a back catalogue full of inventive dance floor cuts.⁣ Now primed to release his debut album, Archie is stepping it up and ascending into the next⁣ level…⁣ A life in music was almost inevitable for Archie. The London-based artist has fond memories⁣ of listening to his grandfather, a concert pianist, play mesmerising recitals in the family⁣ home. On the flipside, his mother was a raver, once picking him up from school wearing a⁣ ‘Junglist’ T-shirt. Moving through band music, into The Prodigy and, eventually, drum’n’bass,⁣ the seed was planted early on. An extended stay in Australia took him to his first real house⁣ club, where the uninhibited, inclusive atmosphere changed the course of his life.⁣ When he returned to the UK in 2006 he bought a pair of turntables, spending all summer⁣ practicing. At university he recorded mix CDs to give to local promoters in the hope of⁣ picking up gigs. Parallel to his DJ exploits, he began experimenting with an early version of⁣ Cubase and signed up to a music school after uni to delve further into the world of⁣ production. Three years later, in 2009, he launched Moscow Records with a friend and⁣ started releasing his own music.⁣ He worked tirelessly in the following years, DJing, producing and continuing to immerse⁣ himself in the dance floor. Five years after the launch of Moscow Archie’s dedication to⁣ music brought him an invite to join the Fuse crew during their summer season in Ibiza. The⁣ White Isle helped to boost his credentials: Weekly sets, and extended after party⁣ appearances, put him in front of thousands of ravers from all over the world and the season⁣ ignited his career...⁣ Archie’s penchant for rugged basslines and ethereal atmospherics form his signature sound.⁣ He’s a confident DJ and tastemaker who takes great pleasure in his craft, and whose rave⁣ heritage allows him to form a strong connection with the dance floor. These key attributes⁣ have led to a slew of bookings all over the world, from Amnesia in Ibiza to Sonus Festival in⁣ Croatia, Warehouse Project and his stunning debut at DC10 in Ibiza in 2018. Archie’s tour⁣ diary is packed full of gigs, and he delivers quality performances at every show.⁣ In the studio Archie has been channeling over 10 years of production experience, and a⁣ lifetime committed to music, into his debut LP ‘Archive Fiction’ which was released in June.⁣ The 10-track collection merges his musical upbringing with his current tastes, incorporating⁣ elements of trip hop and drum’n’bass alongside deep house, minimal styles and post-90s⁣ tech house. It’s an album that showcases Archie’s growth as an artist and demonstrates his⁣ ability to transcend the world of underground house, demonstrating the breadth of his palate.⁣ There are moments of contemplation, all out dance floor attacks and some very special⁣ collaborations, including ‘Twist & Turns’ with drum’n’bass royalty, Onallee. The ex-member⁣ of infamous DnB crew Reprazent came out of retirement to feature on the excellent cut,⁣ which invokes that familiar Bristol vibe perfectly. Also featured is the legend Mr V, who⁣ provides the vocals for ‘Make The Difference’ - a cut that brings that classic deep house⁣ feeling; sublime, groovy and utterly smooth.⁣ Archie Hamilton’s progression has been steady and not without its challenges, but every⁣ step of the way he’s maintained a positive outlook and continued to work relentlessly. Now⁣ well equipped to deal with all the ups and downs that come with a career in music, he⁣ continues to refine his artistry, pushing himself in new directions and taking the dance floor⁣ faithful along for the ride.
