Although he’s getting more and more recognition among party-goers with his Facebook fan figure breaking the 2 million mark, UMEK still likes to emphasize that he’s staying loyal to his creative direction, regardless of the stage’s size, but at the same time tries to please the crowd:
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 deejay 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.
