DT789 – Archie B


Today, we have a BIG podcast from a very good friend. Archie B returns to the Data Transmission Podcast, to officially launch his brand new single ‘Rio’, which comes on our new label – Data Transmission. Archie B first created a mix for Data Transmission 7 years ago on our Mix of the Day series and we’ve supported him so much over the years.

Oxford-based talent Archie B arrives as the first release on the brand NEW Data Transmission Record Label with his summer sizzler ‘Rio’, continuing a standout 2022 for the artist.

Archie B

‘Rio’ is set to burst into the house music scene with a hook that you will be singing all summer! This certified groover comes rustling with a thumping beat and rolling four-four groove, ‘Rio’ instantly transports us to the dance floor for your hands in the air.

‘Rio’ like the city brings the party to launch the label, the carnival feel is blended expertly throughout the track and makes you want to get on the floor!

The release becomes the debut release for us at Dance Music Authority Data Transmission, which has built its 14-year reputation on supporting artists and labels across the scene, in 2022 they bring their own full imprint to the table with some strong house music including big hooks, moments and the occasional thumper!

“Since I started producing 7 years ago now data transmission has supported me & my music from day 1 so it only felt right for me to be the first artist to release on their new label. When I started making Rio over 4 years ago now with various different styles but it was only in lockdown that I revisited the track and reconnected with it to make it a more summer vibes with a carnival feel, This is where the name Rio came from as it’s taken me to the crazy carnival vibes in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. I am very excited to be part of this new journey with data transmission and the Label!”

Archie B says

Archie B’s style of music production is hard to set into one genre. With a combination of UK Garage, House and bass he is setting his own trend with his own style of music. The lovable gent of house music has been gaining fans across the industry and among his peers. His recent release on James Hype’s Stereohype label did serious damage in the Beatport charts along with solid releases on Toolroom Records, Wh0 Worx and Marylebone Records – Archie is becoming a force to be reckoned with with in the house music scene.

Today, he returns to the podcast for the first time. Listen to it below, on Mixcloud or iTunes here.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
