Under the sign of the UMM

We're carrying owls to Athens. Or rather: Ralf Niemczyk and co. are bringing the Underground Music Movement (U.M.M.) back to its place of origin. A small tribute from Berlin and Cologne to the label founded in Naples in 1991. Its legendary phase ended abruptly after the bankruptcy of the parent company Flying Records in 1997 (and then lived on as a music catalogue...)

U.M.M. was recognised by DJs around the globe as one of the leading independent labels for house music and other electronic genres. The label was not a regional phenomenon, but an international player. In the 1990s, tracks could be licensed from New York or Great Britain. These in turn ended up in the hottest record shops in the major club metropolises. U.M.M. stood for deep house, dream piano house, disco house, euro house and much more.

They remained electronic and overcame all kinds of stylistic boundaries.

This open sense of style should also apply to this evening, which will be neither dogmatic nor exhausting. A German deck crew will provide a friendly atmosphere...
