Kaksi vuotta täyteen, ja ensimmäistä kertaa Suomessa, Ummet Ozcan Hollannista.
Vaikkei herra ole ehkä noussut vielä täällä pohjolassa kaikkien tietoisuuteen, on hän ehtinyt niittää mainetta maailmalla jo aika reippaasti. Ummetille ominainen, progressiivisen ja techtrancen tyylinen sekoitus on saattanut herran esiintymään mm. tähän asti suurimmassa EDM tapahtumassa, Den Boschin ASOT 500:ssa.

Dutch wonderkid Ummet Ozcan plays a wide variety of styles, but he tends towards dirty, driving, trancy and pounding sounds mixed in with a good dose
of epic synthmelodies and glitched-‐out, ball-busting basslines. It seems Ummet Ozcan was destined to love EDM. His earliest musical memories involved listening to all kinds of dancemusic.
It's no wonder so many electronic noises worked their way into his subconscious. He acquired a second hand synth and basic sequencer software and in 1999 his producers career officially began.
After spending several years perfecting his skills in a home studio environment, Ummet released in 2001 the import only ‘Pump this Party‘ after a collaboration with The Sunclub (Fiësta, Summerjam 2003). A single that despite its limited release, earned Ummet first credits in global dance music. Another profound interest in sound synthesis and mixing grows while he is making more productions.
In the 1990s, complex synthesizers no longer required specialist hardware and began to appear as software for the PC, often as hardware emulators with on- screen knobs and panels. Ummet successfully designed his own synthesizer and named it Genesis after the biblical episode about the creation of life. For this matter it’s all about creation of sounds and synthesis. Using his own state of the art synth he also designs soundbanks for established music software houses like Rob Papen (Albino, Predator) and Acces (Virus).
Genesis has been prominently covered in the worldwide essential Computer Music Magazine. After this coverage big producer names started using his synth for their own production and Ummet’s name as a gifted sounddesigner was settled.
Meanwhile he delivers a few classic dancefloor burners like ‘Chica Good’, ‘The Light’ and ‘Natural Waves’ which instantly were picked up by Dj’s like Eddi Halliwell, Marco V and many more.
With the release of Ummet Ozcan’s unofficial Trance Energy 2009 Anthem TimeWave Zero he became one of the few Dj/producers that was highly supported on Dutch national radio and gained hit success between the normal mainstream pop-‐ and rock artists. With oustanding remixes for
the likes of Judge Jules, Armin van Buuren, Sander van Doorn, Ferry Corsten and others he became a much wanted collaboration-‐ and remix partner. In 2010 and 2011 he dominated the charts with tracks like Trinity,
Arcadia, Vimana and the ultimate dancefloor burner Reboot. Reboot sustained #1 for 9 weeks and gained him a lot of attention and credibility. As
a result of that, he now is highly supported by the A-‐list Dj’s.
As a Dj he is in high demand and is playing the international field and high ranked clubs and festivals like Godskitchen, Pacha, Eden, Mondaybar, Tomorrowland, Planet Love.
At this moment he is developing a new synthesizer along with new spectacular unheard of sounds that will definitely pave the way for a fresh
new musical breeze thru EDM. Also he is working on a few new big anthems
to be released on the infamous Spinnin Records label that will undoubtedly bring a lot ear pleasure and tons of Ozcan followers.
