Artist name: Skymate
Slovenian producer born in Celje, Slovenia got in touch with electronic dance music at the early age of 11 after listening to tomcraft and similar artists. At age 18, a summer to remember, he started to practice on 2 turntables at his home with friends and within a few months, was performing at private parties, local bars and finally at big nightclub events.He got a chance to prove himself in ex big club in Celje called Escape that gave him a chance to perform at events over in Slovenia such as Eco Festival,Hall of Zlatorog and others.
Djing around wasn't his goal, he wanted more. In 2009, he decided to start working on his own production and his hardgroove techno was born. He signed his first track on Killacell records in 2010 which is owned by Serbian master Hristian Stojanowski. He didn't stop there. 2011 was big year for Skymate. He signed tracks to over 15 labels such as Patterns,Vezotonik,Techment, and many other worldwide labels.
Beside producing hardgroove techno, his passion into new sounds of techno grew bigger and bigger while listening to Christian Cambas and Umek. In summer 2011 he signed first EP called "New Begininng" to Sabotage records which is lead by techno master Christian Cambas and it was sucessfull and charted in Christian's chart 3 times and hit #1 on Trackitdown 100 top techno downloads, later his track "Different" was Umek's choice for week best track in his soundcloud dropbox and was played in his radio show Behind The Iron Curtain. This lead to 3 EPs for Miniatures records which is lead by great techno duo Phunk investigation and his remix edited and played by Richie Hawtin.
Releasing tracks by admired artists labels was a great accomplishment. Now, in 2012, Caution Music was formed and is ready to rock the world with this new techno sound ready to push all boundaries and genres.
