Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Oh wow. Epic? But that’s only one word. Big? Haha no I don’t know. 

What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Whoa, that’s a tough one. That’s like saying you have a favourite child. They’re all my favourites. Look at me being all diplomatic.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Geez these are tough questions. Sweat and tears. I don’t think I cried though. The journey. What I wanted to say and where I wanted to take my listeners and to me that is always the special ingredient.

Tell us about your next EP?
My next Ep is a release that I have been putting off because I wasn’t 100% happy with it. But now I’ve spent some time with it and got it to where I’m super happy. So I’m really looking forward to that and I have a feeling it will get a good response 😉

What have you got coming up?
A lot more releases! I’ve been working really hard on the producing front so I’m looking forward to releasing them!

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I really hope you enjoy the set as much as I do!

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.
