Archie Hamilton

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.

With 2022 seeing the launch of Archie’s MicroHertz label, which in less than 12 months has seen releases from the likes of Luuk Van Dijk, Michel De Hey and Archie himself, 2023 is already shaping up to be another stellar year for the London DJ and producer. Fresh from closing out the iconic Space Terrace at this year’s Miami Music Week, April will see Archie’s debut release with Defected Records, ‘Let The Light In’ featuring HQA. Moving away from his trademark stripped-back sound to explore classic vocal house influences, the release marks a full circle moment for Archie, whose humble industry beginnings started as an intern at Defected close to two decades ago. With over ten years’ experience mastering his craft, Archie’s release schedule continues to be consistent since the release of his acclaimed 2019 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 continues to be one of the most hard-working touring DJs in the industry and 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 at UK establishments such as fabric in London and Leeds’ Mint Warehouse.

With regular appearances throughout the Ibiza season Archie continues to play for the island’s biggest parties and venues including Circoloco, Music On and Paradise as well as coveted performances at the closing of Amnesia in 2019 and the 2022 Amnesia opening party. With landmark sets planned for 2023 at the 20th anniversary of Caprices Festival, Kappa Futur in Turin, Day Trip Los Angeles, Awakenings Festival and Defected Croatia in Tisno, Archie has rightly earned his global status.

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. 2023 will also see Archie return to BBC Radio 1 towers to deliver the coveted Club Heat Mix on Pete Tong’s show.
