Tobias Derer: Drummer and Video-Producer of UMC, started his journey into professional drumming at the early age of six. His passion for all sorts of music-styles is shown in the variety of gigs he played so far, including tours with classical Orchestras, Jazz-Gigs, Rock-Concerts, Metal-Shows and many more. Tobi started to study Jazz at the age of 18 while he was still going to school. Playing in more than twenty bands and renowned ensembles, he toured half of the world and even was on German TV. Nowadays he is studying Pop-Music-Design and is playing the drums for the bands Cypecore and Oakfield. In addition to that he is working as a Session Drummer.
Nils Lesser: Guitarist and Sound-Producer of UMC, started playing guitar when he was 10 years old. Listening to a lot of records and bands fueled his passion for sound and recording early on. At this stage he started to record every befriended band he knew at that time. Since then his path was set. Forming the band Cypecore with his friends in 2007, Nils began to record full length albums professionally and switched back and forth between touring and recording for several years. Running his own studio and studying "Music Producing", Nils continues his perfection and passion for sound.
"As musicians and producers we always look for little extra tweaks in the studio to get that perfect sound. Gruv Gear not only helped us there with their FretWraps but also with their clever transport products as we are touring."
