Hamilton might seem like a relatively new name on the block to some, but this versatile and talented producer has been making electronic music for over fifteen years. Having conquered several genres and worked as an international DJ for a decade and a half, the next step in Hamiltons story was after sending some of his D&B tracks to Ram boss Andy C.
Signing exclusively to Ram in 2009, Hamilton has already released two huge 12s for Frequency (Rams sister label) and the immense Soundboy, a track released as part of Andy Cs Nightlife 5 CD. His latest single is set to be even bigger and is a testament to Rams ability to develop artists.
With a weight of production skill and the knowledge and experience of what makes people go nuts on the dance floor, Hamiltons tunes are engineered specifically to get the dance moving and Brainstorm has no trouble doing that.
Leading in gently with rolling percussive elements and a gradually building atmosphere, Hamilton slowly lets the suspense grow until the ravers are eager for release. Winding bass notes and scattered drum edits are interspersed with sweeping FX and this one is a sure-fire smasher.
Taking things on an epic and melodic tip for the flip, Hamilton shows his diversity with Echoes, a track that harks back to the golden era of drum & bass and was a highlight on Nightlife 5. Like a modern day PFM, Hamilton effortlessly combines twinkling musical elements and warm synthetic pads with crisp breakbeats and a rolling flow thats undeniable. This one will see many a dance floor through to 4am with raised hands and smiling faces.
