Funkagenda Takes Touring Hiatus



After an unfortunate sequence of events we’re saddened to report that British DJ and producer Funkagenda has announced that he will be taking a hiatus from touring for at least the rest of 2013 whilst he battles depression.

Funkagenda’s deeply personal DJ sets and production have built the boy from the Black Country a rising international fan base. Accumulating fierce support both on and off the dance floor, from industry to individuals, Funkagenda’s popularity has continued to rise after a series of hit releases on a plethora of well known labels over the last few years and saw him deliver an excellent podcast for us a short while back.

From the whole team at Data Transmission we’d like to wish him all the best in the coming months and hope a speedy recovery and appearance behind the decks isn’t too far away in the future. Check out his statement on the decision below:

“Hi guys. A lot of you are familiar with the fact that I suffer from depression as I’ve spoken about it a few times over the last year or so. In accordance with advise from my doctors, my management, agents + we have decided that I should take a brief hiatus from touring. It will allow me to address the issue of my depression + also allow me to make some awesome new music for you all to enjoy. This will mean I have to reappoint a few shows until after Xmas. I’d like you all to know that, missing shows is not something I take lightly and I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t absolutely necessary.

During the interim I will be releasing a few exclusive mixes for you to enjoy + possibly a free track. And of course I will be on my social media intermittently to answer questions, reply to fans etc.

I hope you all realize that this is unavoidable + I’ll see you back on the decks nearer Xmas time…”

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.
