The President of Slovenia voted for UMEK on Top100 DJs
President of Slovenia, Dr Danilo Türk, made an announcement to the public, where he encouraged fellow Slovenians and all EDM fans across the world to support UMEK at DJ Mag’s Top100 DJs voting (http://djmag.com/top100). You can check the video on YouTube: http://youtu.be/Rgcseuk29LM
In his speech the President emphasized that although we live in difficult times the improvement is possible and that the key is in harmony, creativity and last but not least – rhythm. He sees UMEK as a personification of those values and that’s why he supported him with his vote. Dr Türk later voted for UMEK and other notable Slovenian DJs in front of cameras.
This is not the first time the President of Slovenia and world’s third techno DJ (according to TopDeejays.com rankings) joined their powers. In 2010 they changed their roles and UMEK made a public service announcement from the President’s official podium in the Presidential palace to the Slovenian youth, warning them about excessive drinking, while in the background the President spinned Gatex, one of UMEK’s legendary tracks.
