Lessons Delivered by UVB
UVB is the pseudonym of the French DJ and producer Sébastien Michel.
The project started in 2013 when he decided to develop his own version of a live PA which was a set only composed of his own productions, and played it at clubs in Berlin (Urban Spree, Tresor).

After the big success of his 2014 debut release “What I’ve Learned” on the dutch label MORD, he continued by releasing “Second Life”, a double pack that was widely supported by the widespread techno community and brought the now classic “Mixtion” onto wax.

Since then, UVB released his first album “Life” in 2015 and started his own label “Body Theory” in 2016 – all this while touring the world.

After a string of EPs on his own imprint over the last years, he releases his second album “Testosterone” in 2018. As for now, UVB continues to deliver his own vision of Techno through the numerous performances worldwide, always looking to explore new settings.
