UMEK continues to dominate with an unrelenting release schedule, and his latest EP is another stomping techno release with two peak time tracks. 1605 is UMEK’s own label, and it’s become the main outlet for his own music, but his music can also be found on other imprints such as Filth On Acid, Intec and Suara.
Based in Slovenia, UMEK is one of the world’s most accomplished electronic music artists who has been at the top of his game for over two decades. Not only does he have many top selling tracks in his extensive back catalogue of releases, he is also a headline DJ who travels the world to play festivals and club events.
In recent times, many know him for his numerous No.1 selling tracks on websites such as Beatport, but his older tracks such as ‘Gatex’ have iconic status as genre defining classics.
‘Cryptic Speech’ opens this release with the thump of UMEK’s trademark kick drum and a pulsating synth line. Dramatic stabs lead to the haunting breakdown which provides an epic hands-in-the-air moment before the percussions slams back in.
Track two ‘Bounce That Ass’ has a jacking sound that takes influence from Chicago’s ghetto and booty styles. Chunky percussion and UMEK’s own personal twist add a modern take on the tried and tested style loved by dance floors all over the world. The growling bass stabs, muffles vocals and snare rolls combine to create the fist pumping groove.
You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘Bounce That Ass’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
