ARCH ONE is an MC from One Tree Hill in Auckland.
A point of difference in NZ‘s super competitive underground music scene, ARCH ONE brings a new flavor to NZ Hip Hop. With a flow unmatched in today‘s market and a definitive and well pronounced NZ accent The MC sounds like he means what he says every time he delivers a track. His track ‘Virtuoso’ is, well, fucking awesome. The beat is super well rounded, the production quality is top notch, and ARCH flows over and with the beat with near perfection. In terms of the way its done, ARCH has taken the bar and climbed the Sky Tower.
In response to our Q&A, ARCH cited the movie 8 Mile as the seed that sprouted his passion for Hip Hop saying “My first time hearing hip hop I was around 5 or 6 years old. It was the track ‘Lose Yourself’ by Eminem, I must’ve listened to 8 Mile over a million times. This quickly expanded into other artists like The Game and 50 Cent and D12.“ The artist also pointed out a point of improvement for a lot of artists saying: “Personally, there’s nothing worse than having the ability to send out a strong message and wasting it on pointless lyrics. Having complete creative freedom and not making the most of it is the bane of modern music.“
