Siege joins EDGE on Data Transmission Radio

Share

On Thursday night at 9pm, EDGE continues their weekly residency on Data Transmission Radio by welcoming tech house producer Siege.

From its trail-blazing 90s rave-days to giving birth to the world-conquering Tomorrowland, Belgium has long punched above its modest size in the world of electronic music. Now rising star Siege, whose techy take on house has graced labels from Toolroom and Saved records to Yousef’s Circus, Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave and Adam Beyer’s Truesoul can add his name to the influential acts that Belgium has gifted the world.

Raised in Hasselt, outside of Belgium’s best-known clubbing centres, Siege is a beacon for the power of focus and self-determination. Buying his first vinyl turntables before he was old enough to go to a club, instead, he listened to mixes on the internet, using this knowledge to buy the hottest records of the moment. It was after playing his first major gigs just a year or two later, however, that he realised he wanted to similarly inspire others by producing his own tracks. Self-taught by his own dedication and the help of Future Music Magazine, when his first-ever remix stopped just shy of the Beatport House Top Ten his reputation was assured.

EDGE says about the show ‘Siege has exclusively held back on Podcasts etc. and is using the Edge Present show to debut ALL his latest releases on Data Transmission’

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.
