Bandwagon Mix #7: Archie (Aku Suka Matematika)

Bandwagon Mix #7: Archie (Aku Suka Matematika)

Every week, Bandwagon invites a guest to do a mix for us. Rather than a standard interview where the artist explains their influences, we figured it’d be more potent if you simply listened to the music. We provide the context, they provide the sounds.

This week, we’ve invited one of our favourite Indonesian selectors to take over the Bandwagon Mix! Since 2009, Archie has been turning heads thanks to his always impeccable DJ sets and his incredibly underrated production/remix work. In recent years, he’s been invited to open for names like Lefto, San Soda, Dam-Funk, Basic Soul Unit and Detroit Swindle (amongst others) in clubs across the region. He’s even played Singapore a number of times with the Darker Than Wax crew, and if you’ve ever been lucky enough to catch him in-person, you know you’re in for treat with this one. He’s prepped an exotic blend today encompassing far-out sounds like avant-garde jazz, tamani drumwork from the griots of Mali, Afro cosmic disco and traditional Balinese kecak rhythms alongside standout boogie, house and hip-hop cuts from the likes of Romare, Ramadanman, Kendrick Lamar and Singapore’s very own Fzpz!
