Featuring Peace Division, Nils Hessand Two To The Power, Archie Hamilton pays homage to a definitive house music era by remixing timeless tracks from the noughties on Moscow Records. The last twelve months have been massive for Archie with releasing his debut album‘ ArchiveFiction’, curating a BBC Essential Mix, not to mention touring the world with appearances across the USA, Europe, Africa, South America and Asia. He now looks to the past for a release focus e don some of his key influences. Responsible for pioneering the tribal house movement, Peace Division aka Justin Drake and Clive Henry dominated the early 2000s with their percussive and rhythmic tracks and‘ What Is This Sound’, released on NRK ,was a pivot alone for them. In his remix Archie crafts in a weaving bassline, amping up the original’s refined percussion whilst still retaining the futuristic vocals for nostalgicallure. One of the first tracks to be released on his defining Eukahouse imprint, ‘AlcoholIs My Favourite’ laid the foundation for a seminal collection of labels helmed by Nils Hess. Archie accelerates the track, incorporating freshly layered cymbals and synth stabs alongside utilising the original bass pattern to maximum effect.
