UMEME originates out of the love for analog electronics and African rhythms. Over the course of countless nocturnal jam sessions they found a striking way to fuse these two extremes through acid, house and techno.
UMEME, aka the Swahilian thunderbolt, shows you that a machine can be alive and on fire. Droning out intense rhythms with colorful
overlays of synth and percussion. You might think that what you hear has to be robotic, with beats no man should be able to produce
himself, but all is live created.
There is no better way to experience this energy then seeing them perform their music live on stage. That is where the magic happens
and where they suck you right in to it.
Umeme is always on the move, creating impact, challenging their boundaries, leaving every track, album or performance with a different sound and signature. They are a figurehead of a new and upcoming subculture, where the art of performing live music is making a prominent way into the electronic dance scene, creating part of the future club and festival conditions as we speak.
