Kicking of the first of three tracks for Archie Hamilton’s tasty Moscow Records is the title track, Fill Callings. The first word here is Jamaica as its deep, pounding bassline sequences that heritage firmly into the punchy rhythms generated by the drums, plus a succession of stabs of various twists and turns. The Premiesku member Floog remixes by exciting the groove with more intense beats and bass, adding a rugged yet breathless quality to the number. Chaboi, then digs deeper via chugging House basslines coupled with an uncomplicated, direct arrangement of sounds, leaving the more robust Anak to take off once again via its sizzling hi-hats and more playful keys.

Archie Hamilton ft. Mr V – Make The Difference – Moscow Records

You know something is on from the very moment the pounding kick drum begins, then as the intense bassline and accompanying undulating funkiness all pulse and carouse their way throughout the arrangement this proves to be inescapably excellent. Archie Hamilton delivers the sort of rich, intensity that is so completely compelling here and given that Mr V also highlights words with a powerful message of positive encouragement then it really doesn’t get much better. A selection of versions including an A Cappella are all available to you but either way a standout release for sure.

Release: May 10
