Mark Archer crashed into the UK charts in 1991 with Altern8's hardcore anthems Infiltrate 202 and Activ-8 (Come With Me). Since then he released further hits both in the clubs and in the charts (both as one half of Altern8 and in his later projects like Slo Moshun), put out a genuinely solid rave full-length in 'Full On... Mask Hysteria', masterminded some ridiculous press campaigns, and donned the now-iconic RAF chemical warfare suits and dust mask for Altern8's performances. Recently, Archer's music was back in the UK charts, hitting #33 off the back of a campaign to get Altern8's Activ-8 to Christmas number one.
On Friday (June 6th), Archer plays Memory Box Social's next party at Shoreditch's The Horse & Groom. Before that, it made sense to get his favourite warehouse rave tracks from the golden era, featuring indisputable classics from Joey Beltram, Outlander, and LFO alongside few lesser-known, but no less essential, tracks.
"A brilliant take on the Northern bleepy techno sound from one of the Future Sound of London’s earlier pseudonyms, adding a euphoric touch to the bass and bleeps."
