Archie Hamilton has seen a remarkable rise through the ranks of the underground house and techno scene, becoming one of the most respected artists in his genre. Working across many facets of electronic music, Archie was an early originator of a new European sound, with his unique take on minimal house and techno: his signature sound of rugged basslines and ethereal atmospherics has established itself firmly in the minds of clubbers around the world.
This year, Archie launched his new event concept, Frequency, with three highly successful shows across Mint Warehouse in Leeds, the Steel Yard London and Lab 11, Birmingham. Focusing on cutting edge sound and visual production with some of his favourite DJs and live acts, including Toman, Oden and Fatzo, Brawther, Jaden Thompson, Fleur Shore & Reiss.
To coincide with his new event concept, Archie’s new record label has relaunched as MicroHertz absorbing his other record labels. The imprint will continue to provide a platform for the bestsourced international talent to flourish, releasing music in the digital realm.
Having spent 10 years mastering his craft; he reached a milestone in the summer of 2019 by releasing his debut album ‘Archive Fiction’.
As a DJ, Archie’s reputation has grown as one of the foremost progenitors of a distinctive sound; his collection includes Classic 90’s gems and upfront club bombs - with a heavy proclivity towards his own unreleased original music and talent from his own imprints. He has performed at some of the world’s most illustrious parties, clubs and festivals from Sunwaves in Romania to Parklife in Manchester, whilst being a regular in UK establishments such as fabric in London and Leeds’ Mint Warehouse.
Now established in both North and South America, Archie is also a fixture on the Ibiza circuit, performing at some of the island’s biggest parties including Circoloco, Music On, Paradise, the closing of Amnesia in 2019 and the Amnesia opening 2022.
Unsurprisingly, his progress has not gone unnoticed by broadcasters. In January 2020 Archie was invited to deliver Radio 1’s Essential Mix. He continued to spend his 2020 wisely, honing his craft in the studio in the midst of a busy release schedule that included remixes for exciting new talents as well his own solo tracks. More recently Archie took up an invitation from fabric to collaborate with Arts Council England on a livestream in his hometown at the Clapton Round Chapel in 2021.
