5 Minutes With Famous Eno

This Saturday we are joined by one of our favourite DJs and producers Famous Eno, for our May Session at Meter. So in preparation we asked him for five minutes of his time to tell us a little bit about himself and what he has been working on.

5 Minutes With Famous Eno

Who are you and how would you describe your sound?

My name is Eno. I live in London and make music.. I suppose my sound is minimal club music.. I am influenced by old school jungle/drum and bass, dancehall, grime, hip hop, bmore club and anything with a vibe! I love working with vocalists and I love pop tracks that sound weird!

Tell us about your upcoming release on Mixpak

Really exited about this. All Good FM is one of the last of the true pirates. The listener has the good fortune of tuning into it for 3 or 4 minutes before they loose the signal. The video is just finished, it features remixes from DJ sliink, Arveene and Misk, Morcee, and me! it also features a good friend of mine MC Stitch on vocals. Stitch used to M.C at a jungle night I used to run about 10 years ago, so its cool to finally do a track with him. Planning on a June release for this one I think so keep your eyes and ears peeled!

As you mentioned, your new single is called All Good Fm what are your favourite radio shows?

Strangely enough, I listen to alot of Radio 4 (no lie) I love Desert Island Discs and Front Row. I also really love the Firin Squad on Choice FM for fresh urban party music across the board.. Toddlas new show on radio 1 is cool too, especially Serocees Sound Snippets

What can we expect from your HDD set and what are you looking forward to at HDD on Saturday?

I’m probably going to play a lot of classic grime, really in love with this sound at the minute.. some dancehall and some new tracks from me.. also expect lots of rewinds! I’m looking forward to Murlos set!

What can we expect from you in the future?

Music that makes people dance (hopefully). I have a lot of new tracks im working on which im exited about.. collabos with Serocee, Trigganom, and some vocalists I cant mention, Last Japan, Murlo and some really weird stuff of my own! also, I just bought a Moog slim phatty so plan to make some beats with that and a borrowed 808 and see where that takes me!

We are still buzzing from Saturday night’s Hipsters Dont Dance; Serocee was a wonderful guest and did not disappoint, his set went from garage to dancehall, and he had the crowd chanting his summer smash Oh Na Na at the close of his set.

Special thanks to our HDD residents Why Delila and Illanja, and to MC Prankster tha Trini Gladiata who had the crowd moving all night. We had the pleasure of creating the soundtrack for some of London’s best movers and shakers on Saturday night, if you don’t believe us, see for yourselves…….
