Data Transmission launched on 1st February 2008 with one aim: to be the biggest and best dance music website in the world. Or is that two aims? Erm…
We’re more of an online magazine than a community, meaning that you won’t find endless pages of people bitching about stuff and arguing with each other, nor will you find loads of slating of rubbish music on our site. We’d rather spend time telling you about the good stuff that’s out there – after all, who does a bad review really help? Our site has one of the busiest and most wide-ranging news sections around, interviews and features with the world’s most exciting producers and DJs and upcoming talent, video features taking you inside some of the best parties across the world and up close and personal with the most interesting figures in the scene, club, gig and festival reviews, entertaining and informative features, album and single reviews, the best dance music videos around, loads of competitions every week, photos and two weekly podcasts featuring the world’s best DJs and our favourite new music. We aim to strike the balance between being entertaining and informative, covering a wider range of dance music than any other editorial-led website, without prejudice. We work to inform our readers about every aspect of the dance music world - from festivals to technology to club politics and beyond. We are passionate about dance music and want to help push artists and events that we feel strongly about.
Data Transmission is a site by the people for the people, where captivating, well-written content is key. There was a gap in the market for an unpretentious, professionally-run online dance music magazine with a wide scope – and Data Transmission was born to fill it.
