Mad Classy presents: Um..

um.. consists of two Icon Collective graduates, Dylan Gold and Ben Bruce, who met while at school and started making music together in September of 2014. Making music comes easy to the two who share a belief that there is a creative void in the electronic music space their music can fill.
“We don’t want to follow an abused and over saturated path devoid of any creativity or evolution. We have found a direction that is new, fun and creatively unique, and have a strong collaborative workflow that comes naturally to us which we have found to be extremely rare” says Dylan, 23, continuing, “we have established a sound and brand that we believe is wholly representative of us as people and that can be understood and appreciated by anyone”.
“This project has come together completely organically and we believe it is creatively innovative. Throughout this span we have finished a 3 song EP that represents our sound and energy” adds Ben, 22.
um..’s first introduction to the public came in December of 2014 with their remix offering of much-hyped producer Awe’s “Griffin” being included in LA powerhouse collective Team Supreme’s Vol. 127 cypher. The guys were in great company grouped with Dubstep legend Plastician, King Henry, DJ Pound, Murphy, Lord Olaf, Rainoh Cee Ross, Yung Orca, Lost Midas, NuTrik Ruff Draft, and Nalepa. Since then, um.. has released their debut EP Pay Attention via New York based label Study Group, which peaked at #2 on the Beatport Electronica Album Chart and #12 on the overall album chart. And most recently, they have collaborated with Los Angeles based collective Shifty Rhythms where their track “skrillex” was featured in their Volume Three Compilation.
“Our music has a playful feeling, while maintaining top level quality production, that’s refreshing in a time where producers take their music too seriously and sacrifice creativity for commercial sounding tracks. We are not interested in following any other artist’s path. We believe in creation without creative boundaries and we demonstrate that through our music. Without saying anything more, I think the music speaks for itself”, says Dylan.
After a busy 2015, including performances at NYC’s Webster Hall BASSment Saturday party, LA’s Space Yacht and the 5th annual Brokechella Festival in Los Angeles, um.. is gearing up for more shows across the US and beyond in 2015. “The unique brand of music that comes from um.. is unlike anything I’ve heard before.” Says, “There’s this weird magnetism that lies at the heart of every um.. track, and I can’t even begin to explain it.”
