Music is what feelings sound like’
BOOKINGS AND ENQUIRIES :
Urmet Kermann, born in Narva, Estonia. As a teenager he remembers spending countless hours listening to mixes and podcasts on his favourite radio show ‘Kliinik’ run by Dave Storm and ‘Tallinn Express’ hosted by 'Rulers of the Deep'. His spare time was filled with going to clubs, meeting Dj’s and soon enough becoming a regular club kid out on town. When he was 18 he bought his first vinyl ‘Masters at Work 69 Steps’ and thanks to his good friend Dj Lex (first Dj to bring electronic music into Narva) he learnt to mix. He began with soulful house that later progressed to a love for deep house. Soon enough he started mixing his own sounds, which got the attention of Dave Storm, whoplayed his mix tape on his radio show. Friends and listeners also began to take interest and began inviting him to play at social and party events. From this he acquired a small following which led him to play for the first time at a club situated in a basement called Chillout which soon enough led him to play in some of the biggest clubs in Estonia such as Angel, Eden, Partei and many more.
In 2007, Urmet left Estonia settling in Sunny Sydney. Australia being the home of soulful house picked up on Urmets style and allowed him to play in some of Sydney most chic venues such as Zeta bar, Favella, Piano Room and the popular Ivy Pool bar. Only 6 months into his stay Urmet found himself to become a resident Dj at the glamorous ‘White Parties’ where he played for the first time to a crowd of 5000 alongside artists Carl Kennedy, Jonathan Ulysses, Eddie Coulter and Paulo Violante.
Urmet is currently living in London and continuing to get attention from London clubs such as The Groucho Club, Amika, Shoreditch House, Gate, Embassy, Home House, Baising House, London Fashion Week,Caligula and Beach Blanket Babylon. In 2009, he played in the biggest summer event of the year ‘Notting Hill Carnival’ alongside Boy George and Kris Di Angels. Soon after scoring his most known gig at the ‘Caligula’ club with Hercules & Love Affair, Luca C, Jim Warboy and Robert Ouch.
Urmet's style is best described as deep, moody, mellow house with touch of disco, analogue bass lines and harmonic sounds with sweet vocals. Depending of atmosphere Urmet know's how to play with the crowd be it a beach party or massive warehouse party in the basement.
Highly passionate about his work he continues to explore his boundaries and soon you will hear about his work as he started to produce his own tracks.
