427 – Afrojack


Back in 2011, Dutch EDM heavyweight Afrojack AKA Nick van de Wall was a mainroom house producer on a rapid rise, with several years of prolific, and undeniably effective work already behind him. Already on the fast track to joining the big league of house DJ/producers, it was his collaboration with Latino hip-hop hitmaker Pitbull Give Me Everything that propelled him to another level, locking him in unison with dance music’s meteoric rise in the US.

Several years later, and not only in is van de Wall a mainstage regular at US festival spectacles like Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival, and European behemoths like Tomorrowland; he’s also been one of the big winners in the award stakes scooping up a host of prizes including two Grammys.

Thus it is with great pleasure we welcome Afrojack, as one of the world’s most sought after DJs and producers to the Data Transmission podcast ahead of him taking to the decks at two of the UK’s leading music venues, Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse on Saturday 4 April and London’s Electric Brixton on Sunday 5 April. (you can grab tickets below!)

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.
