He also entered the “Radio 1 search for a DJ” (under 18’s) in which he came 6th in the country.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A nice little house mix to kick start your week.

What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Ronnie Spiteri – Thin & Crispy

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
A handful of killer tracks lavishly dosed in some of that DJ S.K.T magic 🙂

What’s the best gig you’ve played recently? 
There have already been so many this year, but I’ve just come back from playing for the Cream Opening party at Amnesia with Fatboy Slim which was crazy, so let’s go with that!

What have you got coming up? 
I’m just off to Azerbaijan where I’m playing at the official Formula 1 opening party and closing party for all the racing teams and drivers which should be pretty cool. It’s think going to be completely different from the kind of parties I’m used to playing, but it’s a real honour, and something I’m really excited about.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I just want to thank everyone for their love and support. I’ve been DJing and producing since I was 16 years old and the last two years have been really special. All of my music has come up through word of mouth and from club DJ support so I just want to thank everyone who has supported my music over the years… and there’s a lot more to come!

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.
