The Faultline Project “Skate & Move” b/w “Gimme Lovin'”

Man, am I excited about this one! At long last, I finally have my first 45 out! It’s a slightly different look for me–more disco/house, less boom-bap–and I can comfortably say it’s the best thing I’ve produced to date. The Faultline Project is vocals by Kisura Hendrix and K. Nightshift and beats and scratches by me, and our first offering is a pair of full-on summer jams. “Skate & Move” is a piece of classic roller boogie, and “Gimme Lovin'” brings an uptempo bounce; both of them are nothing but good vibes and sunshine music.

The vinyl is limited edition and with a full-color cover (shown above). You can buy it via Fat Beats, and you can buy the vinyl and/or the digital tracks (including instrumentals not available on vinyl) through Bandcamp. Check the media player below to hear them for yourself. Enjoy! And as always, thank you for supporting my music!


Mobile Mondays in NYC (Mon. June 18)

DJ Enki at Mobile Mondays June 18

I’ve got a 45 dropping on June 22. It’s the dopest thing I’ve ever produced–serious feel-good tunes and a whole new sound for me (less boom-bap, more groove, even a little bit in the housey disco direction). If you’re in NYC this coming Monday, you can get a sneak preview of the record at Mobile Mondays at The Bowery Electric (327 Bowery at 2nd). Plus, I haven’t played MM in a few years, and I’m really excited to get back there and do my thing. It’s gonna be a dope party–come check it out!

The 45 Sessions with DJ Z-Trip (Thursday, Nov. 10)

Z-Trip at the 45 Sessions in Oakland

This right here is something incredible. We’ve got the one and only DJ Z-Trip coming to the 45 Sessions at the Uptown in Oakland on November 10. It’s been a minute since anybody has seen Z-Trip do an all-45s set, but we’ve got him coming to throw down a special treat in a slightly smaller club setting so you can really get the vibe. We’re getting a special opening set from local legend DJ Doc Fu, the homie DJ Platurn and I will be rocking the set, and we’ll have a whole separate lounge area with vendors, giveaways, and sounds courtesy of DJ Delgado and DJ Saurus. But the space is limited, and tickets are already flying out the door! Visit djztrip45sessions.eventbrite.com for presales, and be quick about it!

DJ Jazzy Jeff Shortkut Scratch Bastid 45 Sessions

This right here is some serious business. On December 5, the world famous DJ Jazzy Jeff is playing at Mighty in SF. That alone is a great thing, but check out who’s playing with him: Shortkut and Scratch Bastid. That’s a ridiculous amount of talent in just three guys. And then, we’ve got the 45 Sessions crew rocking the side room all night. You can’t possibly go wrong!

Well, there’s one way you can go wrong: Not going to this jam! And if you want to go, you’re definitely going to want to cop some presale tickets. Get ’em right here while they’re hot!


DJ Enki: The Lookwright Mix

Written by DJ Enki on October 6, 2015

If y’all don’t know about Lookwright, you need to get up on it. Super ill custom crates for both 7″ and 12″ wax, not to mention all sorts of custom projects, including furniture and DJ accessories. So when Mitch Manchild, the brains and the talent behind Lookwright, hit me up for a mix for his radio station, it was a definite honor. Plus, Mitch is the homie, so I had to do it up right. And here it is: 40 minutes of breaks and all sorts of funky stuff. Check it out!

Written by DJ Enki on September 17, 2015

What up, everybody? I know it’s been a minute, but I’ve been steadily working on new material, and now I can finally share some of it with y’all. I teamed up with the wonderfully talented J Ross Parrelli to create this EP/mixtape, “The Scenic Route,” a fun and funky voyage from SoCal all the way up to Sacramento. Good tunes and good vibes–and a sign of things to come. You can check it out below, and you can download it for free (or for however much money you feel like dropping) via BandCamp. Hope y’all dig it!
