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 own 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.
Archie is a dynamic selector, accomplished producer and influential label owner. Having spent 10 years mastering his craft; cutting his teeth in the studio whilst managing A&R for his two imprints, Moscow Records and Moss Co., 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 and Music On.
In just a few years, Josh Butler has firmly established himself as one of house music's most revered talents. Following the unexpected success behind his debut ‘Got A Feeling’ in 2013, Josh soon went on to pick up multiple industry awards from Beatport and DJ Mag, whilst releasing on Roush, Cajual, Madtech, Avotre, VIVa and Noir, to name just a few.
Boasting remixes for Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Joris Voorn, warming up for the multi-grammy award winning Nile Rodgers and Chic, and EPs on Rejected, Defected, Poker Flat, Kaoz Theory and 8Bit, it’s easy to see why his diary has seen him tour the globe. This includes numerous Ibiza residencies and appearances, festival sets including Glastonbury, SW4, Defected Croatia, Parklife, Secret Garden Party, and multiple European, US and Australian Tours.
2018 has been Butler’s most accomplished year to date. Pete Tong introduced him as “one of the UK’s premier house music talents” for his debut on the legendary BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix series, coming in the midst of a diary filled summer and dropping shortly after his One Mix for Apple Music’s Beats1 and his highly anticipated Hot Creations debut ‘Doesn’t Work’. His Ibiza season proved as strong as any, with appearances on line ups for Do Not Sleep at Amnesia and Solid Grooves at Privilege, before rounding off the season at the infamous DC-10 for Paradise’s 2018 Closing Party. This success was mirrored worldwide with sets at Nocturnal Wonderland, Paradise at Brooklyn Mirage, FNGRS CRSSD and throughout Miami Music Week.
