Meet Uros Umek, the author of some hard techno bangers that used to go people berserk. And the biggest disappointment in techno world.

From one of the greatest techno legends he became just a cheesy tech house artist... Only his new Zeta Reticula EPs in 2015 deserves a single word.

I made a Techno mix using some of Umek's early techno tracks. Mix is uploaded on Mixcloud

Imagine: Umek comes from the deepest Underground Techno, his early Music was (very) hard Techno Sound. In this Style he was one of the Quality marks in the past. Now 2014 Umek lurched since years into sometimes bad hands up progessive House/"Techno" (near EDM) Music. I would say, please seach a serious Job and leave us alone with that boring mainstream...

it always amazes me how can a producer go from underground techno all the way to cheezy progressive tech-house... i know, money, fame... as long as he enjoys it, its all good, i guess..

Used to release great hard, dark techno. Check out the releases on for example E-COM and Expire, both highly recommended labels for those who want the real deal.

Sadly he went the same way as many other producers of the "european 90's techno movement". I will not comment on his newer stuff since it doesn't interest me one bit, I'll leave that to someone else.
