We are happy to announced that Archie Hamilton has joined the Rhythmatic Family, and he has offered us this exclusively mix for Rhythmatic.
Archie Hamilton was born into a life in music. The polar influences he was exposed to throughout his childhood can be attributed to the multi-faceted sound of his own work in the studio, or unique style behind the decks. On the one hand his father educated him in the classical modes: jazz, acoustic, rhythm & blues, soul, and even opera. On the other hand his Mother came from a punk background (she was even in a punk band in the late seventies - complete with a shaven head) before embracing the Acid House movement, exposing Archie to the sounds and rhythms of Hardfloor, Adonis, Marshall Jefferson, Jam & Spoon & the Orb. He started listening to her Terry Farley and Mrs Wood mix-tapes and naturally (at the tender age of thirteen) saved up to buy a set of Numark belt-drive turntables and began scoring basic compositions using the eJal loop sequencer
