Estonian-native Urmet K has steadily established himself as a firm fixture on London’s underground circuit. Blurring the lines between hypnotic and emotive house melodies. His music often features hefty grooves, intricate organic percussive passages as well introspective synth arrangements that have been supported by key players like Black Coffee, Themba and Pablo Fierro. As his new EP featuring Zanzibar’s BAQABO, ‘Unani Pendeza’, drops on Stereo MCs’ connected, DMCWorld goes back to mine with Urmet K
