DT-TV : Eastern Electrics 2015



Once in a while (Ed: er, every year surely) a festival comes along that just gets it right. Whilst thousands of like minded people listening to cutting edge music in the sunshine drinking lot and wearing little sounds like a fairly foregone conclusion, it cannot be denied that festival to festival, atmosphere varies widely. This is, in Data Transmission’s hungover-insightful opinion all down to the attendees. For anyone that’s gone to an event expecting a near-religious odyssey of sound only to spend the entire weekend trapped in the oh delightful company of the PhoneDirect winning sales team from Enfield, who all happen to eat 40kg dumbells for breakfast – you know the type they’ve got a best mate called Gaz – festivals are in reality a tribal thing.

One festival that got this early and got it right is undoubtedly Eastern Electrics. Marketed via the right parties and networks, with a carefully line-up year on year EE is one of the festivals DT is happy to call home.

So having booked the Monday off work – we hate Monday’s almost as much as a certain lasagna loving cat – we heading down to Hatfields to dance the weekend away with the Eastern Electrics crew and we spoke to Sante, Geddes, Sidney Charles, Miguel Campbell, Cassy, My Nu Leng and the legend that is Normski!

Here’s how we got on.

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.
