15 years of Data Transmission


Wow… Data Transmission is 15!

What an incredible adventure for the last 15 years from “how not to run a company” to building a globally known brand & covering some amazing music, DJs and producers.

I’m sure I’ve made every mistake… 

We’ve seen interns & writers become some of the industries leading managers, party planners and social media experts.

A massive thanks to all the editors, writers and interns who have helped us over the years. 

From having massive failures that nearly ended everything to building a massive network – which today really helps newer & rising artists on their journeys.

15 years of running a Dance Music Blog, running a dance music business. 15 years of stories and the history of Data Transmission Online Music Magazine, including stories from Turnmills with Grahame farmer founder of Data Transmission.

I spoke about 15 years of running Data Transmission on Twitch on the 1st of February, you can watch it back now!

I’m so excited about where we are with Data Transmission now!

I’m looking forward to this year, which has changed from “I wonder if we will make the next” to excitement and looking forward. 

Dance music media is in a strange place and it has been for a few years, I truly hope finds a better way of working for its long-term sustainability. 

To my friends in the space that still continue to smash it a hat tip to you cos it’s hard for sure. 

As ever we will continue to evolve, turn up, be consistent and roll with the punches. 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
