Since 1999, Slovenian DJ Urban Jeram has been busy building a solid reputation as one of Eastern Europe’s finest techno musicians. Starting out his electronic music career as a 14-year-old resident DJ in a local club in Slovenia, Urban was soon invited to perform across the rapidly expanding club-land territory of Eastern Europe. Working to manage, organise and promote a plethora of dance music events, his wealth of industry experience soon caught the eye of DJ Umek, who offered Jeram a job on his much venerated 1605 (Sixteenofive) label.
Rather than basking in the comfort of his own achievements, Jeram decided to broaden his appreciation of the electronic arts, using video animation to sculpt a creative multimedia vision that encompassed both sonic and ocular triggers.
His stock rising, Jeram was invited to perform at a number of Reload Events and also at the gargantuan Pulse Festival, which gave him an opportunity to test his rolling, hypnotic sound against the biggest names in electronic music industry.
In 2012, Urban Jeram applied and was selected to participate in the legendary Burn Residency competition. After winning his Slovenian heat, he overcame his rivals in the Adriatic Peninsula, before he was invited to compete in the final round of the Burn Residency competition on the party island of Ibiza. Of course, Jeram was up to the challenge, beating thousands of contestants from over Europe in the process. The prize was colossal – a weekly residency at the craziest party in the world, ElRow, hosted at Privilege, the world’s biggest club.
