In Session: Archie Hamilton b2b Rossko
The Fuse boys take over the White Isle
Last year was a big one for Hamilton, too. His affiliation with Fuse gained more momentum and he found himself at a lot of the label's biggest parties. His 'Works On Sunday' EP is some of his most accomplished work yet and 'Mind Blank' became a summer anthem, one that came bursting with energy and bounce in abundance. We spotted it from a mile off and premiered it that July; it went off. His 'Troublemaker' EP on Sukhumvit Records was another stormer last year and with that Archie's transition from label boss to recognised artist was complete.
When Archie and Rossko come together to play though it's the perfect merging of styles. Their fruity, rolling and emotive tech works in both a jacked-up warm-up slot or when they're playing to a peak-time room and Fuse's current residency at HYTE at Amnesia is the perfect example of how well the two work together.
After a hugely successful quarterly residency at Space last year, the Fuse crew have moved to Amnesia for a Wednesday night slot at HYTE and it's a great fit. With Loco Dice rolling out his tribal, thumping brand of house on the terrace, it seems fitting that Enzo and the squad take over the club room to showcase their own batch of super-club rhythms. The opening garnered huge praise from social media across the board and we're happy to present Archie and Rossko's b2b session from the night.
What starts off sultry and silky soon builds pace and by the end of the hour and half set, it's full on pumpers. Here's to another great Ibiza season for the Fuse crew and if there's any horse worth backing on the island, it's this one.
