Exclusive: Tears For Fears – Everybody Wants To Rule The World (Two & Eight Tears For Engineers Edit)


eefest.jpgTo celebrate their upcoming performance at Eastern Electrics festival, Two & Eight (aka The Pushamann and Steve Macri) are offering Data Transmission readers a very special free download.In keeping with the disco/house aesthetic of the duo’s alias, they’ve reworked Tears For Fears‘ classic ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’. Dubbing it the ‘Two & Eight Tears for Engineers Edit’, Steve Macri explains why the pair couldn’t resist putting their own spin on the track: “It’s an amazing pop record which I’ve loved since I was a kid. Beautifully produced with a lovely ebb and flow to it. All the elements in it are fantastic. Basically we just got lost in that chuggy groove, so we latched onto that and let it do its thing – no extra elements added at all – just moving the pieces around so we could show off its best bits to the dance floor.”

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.
