Webster Hall has been long known for providing an event space for the artists that you wont see at a commercial venue or perform for a top 40 loving crowd. In the last couple months this has been seen with the Circus Saturdays showcasing Trance acts like like Sied van Rielm & Sean Tyas as well as Hard acts like Showtek! Well its getting only better with the upcoming tech masters Umek & Pleasurekraft! So get ready to stomp the night away to some well deep filthy techy beats from way behind The Iron Curtain!
It would take a long essay to fully explain UMEK’s meaning to electronic music. The Slovenian born producer and DJ has been setting trends and rocking dance floors for two decades now — and still shows no signs of slowing down. He’s tireless in his techno and tech house production and with more than 100 gigs per year, probably one of the busiest techno DJs out there.
He’s not only been rocking our ears with his own productions for labels like Toolroom, Spinnin, Great Stuff, Intec and many more, but has also been heavily involved in choosing who to sign to his arty imprint 1605, which mostly supports young and talented artists who haven’t yet made it on the global party scene.
Having conquered most of world’s biggest stages and festivals, UMEK started his own weekly radio show “Behind the Iron Curtain,” which immediately landed on dozens of the world’s hippest EDM radio stations.

Q: What is Pleasurekraft?
A: A simultaneously visceral and cerebral experience induced only by the seductive, deep, groove heavy, underground techno inspired music that you hear the kids listening to .. – Common side effects include: unrelenting head bobbing giving way to complete surrender to physical movement commonly referred to as ‘dancing’.
Q: Where is Pleasurekraft?
A: In your CD/tape deck/vinyl/mp3/neighborhood Club/Lounge – anywhere where organically inspired synthetic music lurks, ready to jump in your skin and make you move! However, the most concentrated “red spots” have appeared to be in 2 distinct locations – Stockholm, Sweden, and Washington D.C, USA.
Q: When is Pleasurekraft?
A: Since the dawn of man, to the future of our future of our future…..
Q: Why is Pleasurekraft?
A: Because we are hedonists and when the groove captures you – all you can do is surrender with pleasure.
