DJ Mag Review says it all!
Post Human Satamile
The title really says it all. While NY imprint Satamile has a reputation for releasing uncompromising material,, French producer Umwelt applies his focus even deeper into the electro abyss. 'P.O.W', with its ghoulish riffs and industrial influences,, recalls a time when it was dangerous to walk the streets of New York. 'Biological Entity' and 'Zeta Reticuli Incident - a reference to Umek's electro alter ego - are powered by humming low-end intensity, while the hyper-breaks of'Delinkant' suddenly spiral out of control, like an angry crowd on the verge of rioting. This is the sound of new world disorder, frightening and unpredictable but strangely alluring.
Behind Umwelt is a french music fanatic and an electronic music promotion activist.
He is a real radio passionate: he has run radio broadcasts since 1993 and Teknocity since 1999.
As a DJ, going by the name of Freddy'J, he started mixing hardcore in 1993.. Now he is more eclectic. He plays electro, electrobreaks, breakbeat, breakcore... but he still has a weakness for dark sounds .
He has outstanding mixing abilities; a french journalist saied “he is the Mozart of descks!”. Actually, he has not only a perfect technique but also a huge feeling by leading people on a physical and mental travels.
As an artist, Umwelt he has been composing electronic music since 1996 and released his first tracks in 1997. He began producing techno and electro on his own labels Shelter and Fundata Records that have met a great success. Now his sounds are more electro, dark and broken. From the beginning, he has exclusively worke with hardware: this man loves machines ...he doesn't find computers and softwares very attractive and very sexy...
