Slam Radio • Uun


On Sunday, 20.01.2019 expects you at 16:00 CET on soe.one a new episode of Slam Radio. This time the Detroit based artist Uun, who is known for releases on Animal Farm, Dynamic Reflection or Modern Cathedrals.

Coming up in the music scene of Kansas City and currently residing in Detroit, Uun developed his interest in the fringes of sound as a guitarist in multiple bands before turning his focus to techno in 2012. Both his early work as a band member and his current work as a techno producer share a common exploration of darkness both in mood and in execution. Hard Wax described Uun's sound as a "straight ahead techno juggernaut."

Although he has been producing and performing since 2012, 2018 has seen Uun’s profile rise substantially, with releases on Mord, Dynamic Reflection, No Future But What We Make, as well as Ego Death.

He has also performed his Live PA on the only two USA Mord dates, and played alongside names like Bas Mooy, Fiedel, Ben Sims, Ansome, Headless Horseman, Deepchord, and Evigt Mörker. 2018 also saw Uun’s steady output of productions being included in many substantial dj sets, with the most noteworthy being Blawan’s BBC Essentials mix and Ectomorph’s Resident Advisor podcast.

In 2016 Uun created his own imprint as a platform to showcase the diversity of his productions. Titled Ego Death, the label explores themes of existentialism, duality, and what it means to be an artist in the modern era. Now on it's fifth release, each strives to create a unique and varied atmosphere.

He is also involved in the label and event series Modern Cathedrals; known for their eerie broken beat techno and Eden events. While started as a fully Detroit operation, it is now hosting events abroad, the first of which being in Berlin. Never one to be stagnant, 2019 will see the release of Uun’s most ambitious projects yet, with solo outings on Mord, Dynamic Reflection, Ego Death, as well as a few debuts.
