Armand Van Helden is next the ‘House Masters’

With a career spanning over 26 years; his back catalogue includes 7 studio albums, 100s of remixes and countless singles under various aliases, Armand Van Helden is a true House Legend and not only us at Data Transmission think so, as Defected Records have welcomed him as their 27th House Master, alongside Frankie Knuckles, MK, Masters At Work and the latest, his good friend Todd Terry.
Coming out in September, the compilation showcases his incredible versatility as a producer, with a selection of both anthemic songs and straight-up club tracks. The album features 20 of the Boston-born producer’s finest productions, from recent commercial hits like ‘Barbra Streisand’ as Duck Sauce (w/ A-Trak) to old skool gems such as his Crazy Trauma Mix of ‘Stay Together’ by Barbara Tucker back in ‘95.  For a man who ‘hated house music’, before falling head over heels for it back in the early 90s, Armand Van Helden has established himself as one of the most-loved and in demand producers on the planet.
Simon Dunmore: “It’s a real privilege for us to promote music from back in the day and all the great records Armand Van Helden has made, to a new audience and to the older audience, because sometimes they need to be reminded of how great those records are.”

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.
