Hamilton might seem like a new name on the block to some, but this versatile and talented producer has been writing, producing & DJ-ing electronic music for over 15 years. His biggest breakthrough came in 2009, when Andy C heard some of his tracks and signed him to an exclusive deal with RAM Records. Since then, Hamilton has been smashing clubs across the world, and was even chosen to mix the RAM Records Drum & Bass Annual 2011 compilation. Now he’s back with another RAM release, and DJs everywhere have jumped on board.
Hamilton’s new two-track release starts out with Deep In My Heart, a slightly more “liquid” track that features fleeting vocal samples and spaced-out synths and drums. The real prize on this release, though, is Rich Kids, an absolute face-smasher that is getting major playtime from almost every major DJ in the drum’n’bass scene. Just wait for the drop–it’s about as destructive as a d’n’b drop can get, with 4/4 kicks at 174bpm thrown in at the beginning of phrases to send the energy through the roof.
