Here’s a little bit about some of our headlines for the show…
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, Music On and the closing of Amnesia in 2019.
East End Dubs
East End Dubs is imbued with the same urban grit, late night menace and subtle sense of mischief as the East London streets from which he takes his name. It has been that way since 2012 when he first broke through with a dark and infectious tech sound that has been jacking up dance floors all over the world.
His own productions are slick, texturally rich affairs that are perfectly sculpted to be a perfect mix of function and form: metallic and mechanical yet scuffed up with a real sense of soul, they diamond cut tools designed for maximum impact with minimal effort. East End Dubs very much considers himself a DJ first, producer second, and has done since he first started spinning 15 years ago. Since then he has spent untold hours lost in record bins, on Discogs, in stores around the world hunting for those most timeless records. It’s an addiction as much as a hobby and a passion, and means that this cultured selector keeps ‘floors locked into his stripped back but characterful grooves from dubbed out regions of the house, garage and tech worlds.
Madvilla is an artist from Southern California currently residing in London, UK. Having crafted his own unique “ghetto deep” sound, he has managed to land releases on labels such as Locus, No Art, Seven Dials, Strictly Rhythm as well as gain support from high profile artists such as Enzo Siragusa, Sidney Charles, Seb Zito, Kenny Dope, Todd Edwards, East End Dubs & more. With a rapidly growing fan base, he has been noted simply as “one to watch”.
Prok & Fitch
Ben Prok & James Fitch are one of the most exciting and acclaimed DJ/production duos in House music today. With their original tracks this year seemingly ubiquitous across Beatport charts and clubland alike, their rise to success has been swift and unrepentant. Staying current whilst building year-on-year in today’s music climate takes diversity, focus and raw talent, something that has earned Prok & Fitch the right to join a prestigious list of electronic music household names hailing from the UK’s hedonistic city of Brighton.
From an early age, it was always apparent that Summer had formed an intimate connection with the commanding rhythm of House music. That sense of being, created through 4 to the floor rhythm, mesmeric percussion and robust drums has has driven her to emulate that same slice of personal euphoria for others, through unique and passionate levels of live performance. Summer’s signature rolling Tech House and garage infused sound serves a distinct purpose, she aims to manifest grooves that invoke free-movement and strike up whatever it is that lies deep within us, taking it back to a place in time where entire tribes of people would dance together to a beat. Her bare essentials/no gimmicks approach to musical avocation is commendable, in a sense that subtlety is paramount and using very little to create something so ample and pleasing is vital. It gives her a blank canvas on which to paint a picture throughout the length of her sets and enables her to take you on a journey.
Owner os Shed London, Banskie has emerged into the scene and really made a name for herself! Once she steps behind the decks the party is pumping, her ability to read the crowd and dig deep for classics and new bangers makes her sets seamless. After her performing at our festival life in the park early on this year we had to invite her back down to Brighton to make an appearnace for out end of year celebration!
This NYE is looking to be a pretty special one after all being stuck indoors at home last year, LETS PARTY!
