Twilight–“Love’s High (DJ Enki remix)”
When Groove Merchant’s Vinnie Esparza sold me the limited-edition reissue of the Twilight album, he did so on one condition: That I remix the last song, a pretty little synth-and-vocal vamp called “Love’s High.” He was joking about that condition, but I decided to do the remix anyway. Vinnie dug it and passed it along to Ubiquity records, which handled the reissue, and they loved it and said they wanted to include it on a special remix single they had planned in which they’d put three songs from Ubiquity’s recent catalog on one side of a record and a remix of each of those songs on the flip. You can buy both the vinyl and the MP3s directly from Ubiquity.
The follow-up vinyl for “The Singles” on Slept-On Records. I contributed an instrumental track called “Southpaw Piano” as well as some piano-free bonus beats. The MP3s can be bought on iTunes (search for DJ Enki), or right here on Amazon.
“That Type of Music” (DJ Enki remix)
My first production-for-hire job! I did this remix for the homies Zeph & Azeem for the first single off their fantastic Rise Up LP. The vinyl is out of print, but the MP3s of the vocal and the instrumental can be bought on iTunes–just search for DJ Enki.
“Kung Fu Kwaku”/”On the Scene”
My first time on wax! These songs came out on Slept-On Records as the B-side to a 12-inch featuring songs by Slept-On honchos E Da Boss and Nick Andre. “Kung Fu Kwaku” is my first real production, and I’m very proud of it (NOTE: It is misspelled as “Kung Fu Kwaka” on the record’s center label and as such gets misspelled on various MP3 retail sites). You also get the “Kung Fu Kwaku” bonus beats, here called “Judo Chop,” as well as the vocal and instrumental versions of “On the Scene,” featuring Lyrics Born and Raashan Ahmad. This record was pressed in a small quantity and is therefore tough to track down. However, the MP3s can be found on iTunes (search for the song titles–remember that iTunes lists “Kung Fu Kwaku” as “Kung Fu Kwaka”), or you can buy them from Amazon right here.
