M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents Miami Sessions with Umek_Live@Studio_Martin_Bucharest_Romania-M.U.M Episode 112
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement

DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Andrew Technique-M.U.M Episode 111
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement





ANDREW TECHNIQUE - biography

Be Ray Ya Book Hey, Can't Play the Piano, Luna Park and Fresh are just some productions which recently invested Andrew Technique as one of the hottest young electronic artists in the region. And it's not a small deal if we take in account he's determined to challenge the infamous Slovenian techno heritage and take it to the whole new level. When he's not abusing the decks and comps on his own, Andrew, a protégé of Flow Management and dedicated member of SDJF initiative, performs as a member of Foreplay!, Parallel Fusion (live) and R&A projects. Well, he sure came a long way so far. Especially if we bear in mind he grew up on metal guitar reefs.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

"It’s true. I'm an art junkie,” admits Andrew. “When I was a kid people thought I’d become a successful painter, actor, singer or whatever. But it was the music that attracted me the most for as long as I can remember. In business I believe in professionalism and dedication, but when it comes to producing and performing music I indulge in being lead by my feelings. And I’m very emotional. I can get goose bumps or even a tear in my eye listening to some great piece of music. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I do listen to the comments given by my friends and people that I personally believe they are credible critics. I respect good-intended critic, but I got where I am today mostly because I decided so and worked hard to reach some of my personal goals,” summarizes his career Andrej Šarkanj aka Andrew Technique.

Although as a master of his own destiny he almost abandoned his dream not so far ago. “Let’s just say I came to the major life-crossroad and had to decide what I wanted to do with life: I could have ended my music career right there and then or choose to channel all my free-time and energy into production and promotion of my own vision of dance music. It never was, and still isn’t, all roses. But now, that I finally get the positive feedback from the right people I’m happy I decided not to quit," explains Andrew with a tiny sparkle of satisfaction in his eyes. He made some big steps in 2007: he produced bunch of great fresh sounding tunes, his records are now being regularly played by the top deejays such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani, some of his tracks were already broadcasted on BBC Radio 1 … But, regarding the strong competition, Andrew is aware that just a few of good releases will not bring him much.  So he doesn’t rest on early successes: "Dedication, sustain quality of releases and a bit of luck are key elements on which I build my future as an artist.”

It’s been more than a decade since he developed a passion for 4x4 beats. “I used to be into guitar music. I learned to play the piano, I joined the garage band as a teenager and I grew up on hard rock and metal,” smiles Andrew on not so distant memories. “During the high school period I came in touch with other genres, widened my musical spectrum and finally turned in totally different direction. I started listening to electronic stuff, learned how the music is selected, performed and produced and in a few years established myself as a tech-house deejay." Although some could label his sound more like unique mixture of minimal, electro and progressive elements. "We leave in a time of genre blending, so it’s hard to label one’s sound, anyway,” admits Andrew. "But those who follow my work do know I’ve always had a strong passion for organic African rhythms."

And how did he get his name? “Andrew was an obvious choice, just a translation of my civilian name. And I choose Technique since I was always very handy with stuff, I still work in a computer shop, MacGyver is a big hero of mine and the name also reflects what I do as an artist.” And the influences: "I listen to a lot of music and I got inspired by a lot of great artists along the way. I try to find something special in every piece of music and all musicians are mentors to me in a way. But the most important influence for me as an artist was and in a way still is our local super club Ambasada Gavioli. It was the place where I was introduced to electronic culture and where I experienced some great performances of leading global deejays.”

Andrew is also known as a “very friendly artist”. He's a member of SDJF initiative that is dedicated to constant development of the local electronic club scene and supporting young artists. And when he's not performing on his own, he abuses decks and comps as a member of Foreplay!, R&S and Parallel Fusion (live) projects: "There were also some others, but this things come and go and only the best stay. The basic idea behind collaborations is to get together with other artists, develop and share ideas or blend genres. And it's always more fun producing and performing music with other people than on your own."

As a producer he gets all the help he needs from his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. He established his name as part of Tomy or Zox combo on the house scene back in the 90's and is now successfully running his own studio that is second home to some of the hottest young producers in the region. Tomy and Andrew debuted on Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label with the Obala EP in late 2007. Tomy also remixed Fresh which was included in Umek's Essential Mix and released on Circle Records: "Studio is my favorite place for spending free time. I go there most of the days and I try to channel my ideas, thoughts, wishes and feelings into the music." And since he's very passionate guy, there's a truckload of new records with Andrew's name on it planned for release in forthcoming months. "I'm already well established artist in the region, so now I'd like to spread my sound trough the rest of the Europe and elsewhere. There are many challenges I'd like to take, but the ultimate would be performing on another planet. I'm not kidding. I believe this is something I could achieve as an artist, so don't be surprised if you get a postcard from Mars or Venus someday."

M.U.M Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Juliet Sikora-M.U.M Episode 110

Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement







…This beautiful creature stalks her prey at night. Music is her weapon and beats, her bullets. Trumpet stabs and drum kicks for close-quarters combat. Juliet Sikora is going in for the kill… Elsewhere, you would probably need to jump headfirst off a bridge to experience such an adrenalin rush. But when this young lady is behind the decks, the rush is greater. Don't let her good looks fool you, because she still knows how to control an angry mob. With a flick of the wrist she spins her first disc. The crowd roars in unison and are instantly under her spell. It’s going to be another long night. Born in Strzelce Opolskie in Poland, Juliet has always had a passion for music. She learned how to play the piano at an early age and developed a taste for the electronic side of music while she was still in her teens. After leaving school she took up DJ-ing, organized her own events and hoped to make a career in music, be it behind the scenes or in the limelight. After she obtained a degree in Event Management, it looked like she could either. From Berlin to Miami, club to club and long sessions in the recording studio - This girl never stops. How she even finds time to fit in her day job at a renowned record label, nobody knows. But she does. And like everything else in her life, she does it with a passion that is second to none. This passion is also reflected in her music. After teaming up with Tube & Berger for her first single: ‘Together Now’ released on Opaque Music, she took the German club scene by storm. She went on to produce her own single and released the globally acclaimed ‘Turkish Delight’. This release brought her international fame and a huge fan base with it. Offers started rolling in from all over the world: Istanbul, Miami, London, Berlin, Amsterdam. No matter where she played, she rocked the clubs with her amazing blend of Balearic Deep / Tech House. A lot of remix work followed her fame and the likes of Massimo Santucci, Fuzzy Hair and Cerux and came knocking at her door – even Tube & Berger have hooked up with her again on a new project. New productions are on the way and she’s busy in the studio right now putting the finishing touches to her latest number. All in all, this girl is worth looking out for. Be it for her good looks, or her good taste in music…You never know, she might even be playing in a club near you this weekend!
