Upcoming Shows

Who's behind UMC

Tobias Derer

Tobias Derer, drummer and video producer of UMC, started to realise his dream of becoming a professional musician at the early age of six. His passion for all sorts of musical 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. Tobias 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 internationally several times and he even appeared on German TV. Nowadays he studies Pop Music Design, works as a session and clinic drummer and of course plays the drums for Cypecore and Beyond the Black.

Nils Lesser

Nils Lesser, guitarist and sound producer of UMC, started playing the 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 has been 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 production, Nils continues his perfection and passion for sound.

Two metalheads on a missionary mission for their beloved genre. Since 2014 drummer Tobias Derer and producer Nils Lesser on guitar show their fellowship how nowadays top 10 hits should sound like!
By reworking any kind of radio hit from Avicii to Pit Bull and Britney Spears they grew their audience within weeks into a massive YouTube fellowship and started a movement. Millions of views and ten thousands of subscribers show their support. Always with a wink they don’t take themselfs too serious but still don’t miss to impress with their musical skills.
