To celebrate our first year of Data Transmission presents… parties we are taking over XOYO in Shoreditch for a very super special event on Friday 5th August. It seems like only yesterday since we launched our first Data Transmission Presents… party, with the first Live show in London for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs at The Silver Bullet. For all that were in attendance, it was war-painted, red-Indian headdress wearing madness in abundance. Since then we have had everyone from Beardyman to Drums of Death to Fenech-Soler, Retro/Grade, Aeroplane to Darksky and tons more covering the entire musical spectrum with some truly memorable parties including one in an igloo in Austria, two on boat vessels and a number of very fun London venues.
Gracing the decks first up is much-talked-up artist M A N I K, whose eclectic slow-mo-meets-electro sound was realised on Josh Winks Ovum imprint with the recent release of his album ‘Armies of The Night’. It marks the first London date of his European tour, which will see the NYC resident tout some smooth, deep and groovy magic.
Support for M A N I K comes from far and wide, with legendary tech house pusher KiNK giving us a well-honed live set in preparation for our headliners – so expect big sounding, foot pounding 4-4 in stylish measure, guaranteed to soundtrack your Friday night perfectly.
Making waves across the deep house world lately are Tale Of Us, the latest signings to be touted by the uber-cool Visionquest label, who will be playing their moody tech-house including tracks from their recent Dark Song EP, right after Data Transmission Round-Up Ben Gomori rubs us some tasty treats and Avant Garde / MiMO resident Lawrence Daffurn gets the masses in the mood with a lush sounding, grooving warm-up set.
And of course, our DT party wouldn’t be complete without another cracking theme to ensure the mood continues right. You’ve grooved to the sounds of tech-deep and minimal house music – now, get ready for Tache-House. We’ll be bringing some facial-hair fancy dress down to shake of the stiff Shoreditch air and get you right in the mood for some pounding, technical and deep beats. Of course you could grow your own…but we’ll leave that up to you. See you there; be prepared to shake your follicle magic well into the early hours!
