Solvenian Techno DJ/Producer UMEK has just kicked off his 11 City North American tour with him playing such iconic hotspots as Mansion in Miami, Pacha in New York, and the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Part of his succes lies in his ability to stay true to his taste for tech house while reading the crowd.
UMEK says "I like to perform in front of big audiences that are not necessarily there for music that I promote. That's an honor, a creative challenge and a big responsibility at the same time. Not every DJ gets the chance to present a bit more vanguard, alternative, underground music on the stage reserved for major hit-makers and it's really important to face this kind of challenges in a way that you don't compromise your own legacy and at the same time adapt a bit to the taste of the crowd in a way that people get rather intrigued with your sound than bored."
