Its Sunday so here is a tiny part of my history with music.
Im Archie, I’m blessed to be an international singer, MC, DJ, & songwriter from the Houston Texas. I have been creating music for over 15 years, and DJing even longer. I was introduced to the art of DJing in the 6th grade, I remember specifically studying DJ Jazzy Jeff & Grand Master Flash before we were able to look music up on the internet. I learned so much from them at the time it seemed like they were sitting with me specifically explaining things to me personally, learning stuff like, DJing is more than just playing music, its about feeling music, about letting the music be in you and playing yourself for people, feeling the vibe of your audience and allowing yourself to be communicated and translated to the people through the music you play & how you chop, fade, or phase from song to song. I tell you the truth these cats are the OGs in this thing. When I first fell in love with the world of music its no surprise hip hop was one of my first loves, but a lot of people don’t know smooth jazz & soul were my first loves as well. In 6th grade I began creating mixes for classmates, drawing from various music genres from all over the board. I developed and honed my musical talents and DJ skills with instrument lessons and music theory classes for over 4 years. From 2003-2012 through high school, college, and further I’ve created many mixes and gained experience while working live events at festivals, weddings, and parties, & more.
Although i took that time off DJing and focused my attention on creating music full time, I never lost my passion for the craft of DJing, in fact growing in my craft when it comes to the production of music has not only taught me a lot but also caused me to fall more in love with DJing. Life is a crazy thing. So many steps, so many paths, & journeys, struggles, & victories. But one of the biggest things that drives me as a whole is love, love for myself, my craft, my people, & music! And the love i have for those things will always lead me to fight for them! Lets keep making memories & making change through and with what we love!
