ARCHIVE : (Ronin Sound: Los Angeles, NYC)
Killing fakes since '99 with his doubles routine of “Soundmurderer,” Archive's style can only be described as the bastard child of hip hop and dancehall. Backed by an arsenal of the most rare and sought after white labels, his guns out selection teases even the most discerning ragga jungle head and is guaranteed to smash any dancefloor. Archive has played alongside stateside dons such as TESTER, R.A.W. and CRS? at monthlies like the Herbn' Sunday Sound Clash in L.A. and Rapture in San Diego. His “Merderous Jungle Top Shottaz” mix is in constant rotation with heads from Los Angeles to Brooklyn; run for cover if you can find a copy. The skills are on-point, the crates are deep and the massive a'int ready.
