um.. consists of two Icon Collective graduates, Ben Bruce and Dylan Gold, who met while at school and
started making music together in 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. 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”.
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.. 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. Additionally, 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 the duo.

After a busy couple of years, including performances at NYC’s Webster Hall BASSment Saturday party, a
midwest headline tour, LA’s Space Yacht and touring around the U.S., um.. is gearing up for an exciting
year ahead. “The unique brand of music that comes from um.. is unlike anything I’ve heard before.”
Says YourEDM.com, “There’s this weird magnetism that lies at the heart of every um.. track, and I can’t
even begin to explain it.”

He started making dubstep in 2011 and from there evolved into a whole sound and genre of his own. With swampy bass lines and ambient mystical soundscapes, a Toadface set is a journey that all bass music fans can enjoy.
