Designed as unique integral researching platform for studio sound experimenting, stage performances and multimedia presentation of new sonic structures, the 1605 Music Therapy also appears in a form of a music label. Its whole purpose is to support the artists in spreading their creative output in the both music universes, analog and digital one.
This label is the latest manifestation of the creative spirit caught in the notorious electronic platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco which established the alternative sound of Slovenian electronic music in the worldwide circuit.
But as it is created from collective vibe, stuffed with technology, open to your mood, effective on sucking it in, this time the aim of the whole platform and its representation in the form of Label 1605 is much courageous. It makes you feel above, between, inside – extremely you. This feeling is based on 1605 Music Therapy. It helps to enjoy life. Period.
It would take a long essay to fully explain UMEK’s meaning to electronic music. The Slovenian born producer and DJ has been setting trends and rocking dance floors for two decades now — and still shows no signs of slowing down. He’s tireless in his techno and tech house production and with more than 100 gigs per year, probably one of the busiest techno DJs out there.
He’s not only been rocking our ears with his own productions for labels like Toolroom, Spinnin, Great Stuff, Intec and many more, but has also been heavily involved in choosing who to sign to his arty imprint 1605, which mostly supports young and talented artists who haven’t yet made it on the global party scene.
Having conquered most of world’s biggest stages and festivals, UMEK started his own weekly radio show “Behind the Iron Curtain,” which immediately landed on dozens of the world’s hippest EDM radio stations.
Although he probably holds a national record for the number of flights per year, UMEK still finds time for charity. Every August he hosts a charity event called “Party with a Cause,” where local sponsors help raise money for a certain cause, mostly to help underprivileged youth.
