Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement
For a long time, Slovenia is known for its great
electronic parties, but as the local scene is of boutique dimensions,
everyone, who wishes to take the art of mixing and producing to a
professional level, has to go out there and enter the worldwide scene.
Umek has done this step as early as in the middle of the 90s and so he
became one of the most important techno players of the global techno
scene, even before the end of the last millennium. Together with
people, who shared the same views, he successfully captured the first
era of researching and recreating the rules of the dance music in
Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco platforms, which all
put the sound of the Slovenian techno on the world map of electronic
In the beginning of the year 2007, Umek started a new 1605
Music Therapy - Sixteenofive, with which he marked the beginning of the
second era of his music creation and what an era it is. 5 highly
popular releases on the 1605 label with lots more planned in the next
few months, a huge success of the »Day Of Electronics 09« - the main
1605 event in Krizanke (Ljubljana, Slovenia) for the third year in a
row, a popular summer festival »Disconautica« (Koper, Slovenia)
featuring 1605 Main Floor for the second year in a row and with over
50.000 attending people. Furthermore the 15 astonishing releases and
remixes already released in 2009 are the best proof, that Umek stays
focused on his primary goal – to make high quality productions that
stand out from the rest and to bring this music closer to people all
around the world.
The year 2009 also brought a fresh breeze in
Umek’s booking department and so his new booking agency is Bullitt
Bookings from the USA, that also takes care of some of the biggest
names, like Dubfire, Nic Fanciulli, Shlomi Aber, Davide Squillace and
Last year's releases like Is it / Longer Trail,
Destructible Enviroment, S Cream, Designed Persona, You Might Hear
Nothing and the latest club hit Work This Data, have caught the
attention of Armada, Hell Yeah, Tronic, Dataworx and other biggest
labels of the music industry and judging by Umek's tracks »Hablando«
and »Slap«, released on his own label 1605, by the enormous amount of
upcoming releases and the second (and first on 1605 label) album with
his 10 great tracks “Responding To Dynamic” (coming in spring 2010),
Umek surely isn’t going to run out of creative fuel for quite some time.
