Archi is an emcee of prodigious talent. Based in Perth, he has been steadily attracting attention in the hip hop scene. He keeps his schedule full, splitting his time between regular hosting of CoLab at The Moon Cafe, where he frequently demonstrates his exceptional freestyle ability, and a heavy rotation of live shows with fellow emcee, Marksman. His freestyle skills certainly earn him his moniker. Archi thinks at light-speed to deliver poignant and, often, humorous rhymes "as soon as possible".
In addition to CoLab, Archi has supported artists such as Seth Sentry and Grey Ghost during their west coast tours. He collaborates closely with producer Lenny Rudeberg, however, Archi is also an accomplished musician and beat maker himself. For a number of years he was the bassist for WAM Award winning group, The Typhoons.
Archi's style is hard to describe. It is a fluent amalgam of razor sharp wit, complex wordplay, an impeccable and unique sense of flow and a constant attention to the nuances of expression. His ability to shift easily between straight delivery, swung rhythms and double-time flows across a massive range of tempos and styles has left more than a few audiences awestruck. Add to that the fact that Archi has an intuitive sense of the direction that other emcees are moving in, bouncing off them with ease, and you have an emcee of rare expertise.
Archi currently divides his time between his role as a father and a number of creative musical projects. A buzz is building around his music and the Perth hip hop scene eagerly awaits the completion of the projects he currently has in development.
