Fresh off the success of Enzo Siragusa’s reference-point debut LP A Decade Of Rave, another of the FUSE camp is preparing to drop his first album. The man in question is Archie Hamilton. The release, titled Archive Fiction, is scheduled to drop on 21st. June via his own label, Moscow Records.
In a similar vein to Enzo’s effort, the 10-tracker promises to be "a journey through my experiences and influences growing as a clubber, DJ and producer." Another point of interest is that the album has two confirmed appearances from guest vocalists. Stateside Mr. V and D&B regular Onallee are the two artists in question, pointing to varied influences. The East London-based talent has hinted that Archive Fiction will span far more than purely house music, with jazz, trip-hop, dub and bass all said to feature in some part. The Mr. V featuring Make The Difference can be listened to below.
Hamilton’s rise to the top has coincided with his success within the FUSE label and party series. The collective that also includes Rossko, Seb Zito and Rich NxT continues to go from strength-to-strength. While it’s clear that Archie’s studio commitments have slowed down public DJ appearances over the course of the last 12-months, we hope that now the album is ready to go these will pick-up again.
Thankfully Archie will be in attendance when FUSE return to Tobacco Dock’s car park on Saturday 21st September. Again linking up with the Martinez Brothers’ Cuttin’ Headz in a repeat from last year’s debut at the venue, the FUSE lads will feel right at home in the middle of London’s docklands. The car park the ideal location for their stripped-back style of music. Knowing Hamilton’s production prowess, we’re sure that many of the tracks from the album will still be doing the business by then.
Archive Fiction is out at the end of the month.
