Archie Hamilton is a young man making a big imprint on the DJ world, with a nomination in the Ibiza DJ Awards 2016 in the newcomer category. The London based DJ has two labels to his name, Moscow Records and Moss Co., and also has releases/ remixes on well known labels such as Fuse and Fear of Flying. The popularity of his hypnotic house and techno sets have allowed him to perform internationally, at respected venues such as fabric, Space Ibiza and Sonus festival and Amnesia. He also launched his own event brand, ‘Arkityp’, which hosted 5 parties in Ibiza’s Underground last Summer. Archie’s tracks ‘Mind Blank’ and ‘Troublemaker’ also gained considerable respect throughout 2015. We had a not so serious chat with the man himself.
