Umek became famous by techno-supporters in Europe about 2001, for his fast mixing skills and his uplifting dj-sets. In the later years he changed his style a little bit. He has released a large number of EPs and anthems and has a reputation as an innovator. In 2006 he released a single "Posing as me" which was a big hit in Slovenia and in 2007 another video supported project with a Croatian singer and lyrics writer Anđa Marić Carbon Occasions. He is known to play the music from 4 turntables simoultaneously. On his birthday May 16 he organises a musical event called Dan elektronike (Electronica day). He is the owner of 2 record labels called Consumer recreation and Recycled loops. He was ranked at position 29 of the TOP 100 DJs for the year 2007 by the DJ Magazine.
