Most 6 year olds mark their birthday by drinking too much fizzy drink, eating too much cake and having a party. Well Data Transmission is slightly different to most other 6 year old although we will be having a party to celebrate reaching the milestone and guess what? You’re invited. Where you say? Well how about seminal London nightspot Ministry Of Sound complete with performances from Data Transmission favorites Electronic Youth, Cedric Gervais, Wolfpack and Tim Mason? Sounds good doesn’t it?
And now to further get you in the party spirit our 6th birthday podcast comes from 103 headliners Electronic Youth. For those of you somehow not familiar with the fast rising duo of Trevor King and Rustem Rustem allow us to fill you in: Rustem moved through an early career in vinyl distribution whilst helming his own Loonacy & Spud Records imprints, adding a spell in charge of The Hoxton Whores own WhoreHouse Records. LeisureGroove created a solo production career with success and support from the likes of Judge Jules, and Seb Fontaine via his own label Digital Disco Records collaborating with the likes of Angie Brown, and seeing successful release with the likes of Hed Kandi. The two then hooked up on the UK DJ circuit, and created Sexy Trash Digital with initial releases on the label including ‘Rat Race’ and ‘People’ under their own names. A change direction in sound took place reflecting their joint desire to create something new and fresh, reflecting their musical influences combined with the “deep” sound emerging from London and the South East …Electronic Youth was born!
