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!

5 minutes with Whole Sick

This saturday we are joined by Whole Sick at the Meter. So in preparation we asked him for five minutes of his time to get to know the fast rising DJ a little more.

The tunes you have been working on recently with Tomb Crew, Breathe and I Go Sick in particular, have dancehall influences. What’s your favourite dancehall tune?

Hard to pin one down, but I’ll say Sizzla – Scream, love how raw it sounds, like a call to arms.

You have djed at countless festivals and parties from Snowbombing to your residencies at Kool Kids Klub and My City. What is your ultimate floor filler?

When I’m up against it, Mr. Oizo – Flatbeat always comes through for me, everybody knows it and as that bassline just thunders through the room, you can’t help moving.

What is the tune you think is under-rated and you wish more people would appreciate?

I don’t know if it’s underrated, or if I just didn’t hear it played out much, but I absolutely love Roisin Murphy – Momma’s Place (Heavyfeet Remix). Heavyfeet productions are always on point and this is an absolutely killer tune for starting a party.

What can we expect from your HDD set on Saturday?

Really hyped to come down and play after hearing amazing things from your previous guests. You’ll get my usual frantic tune selection, house and garage are always on the cards, it’s music to make you dance, not think to hard.

What else can we expect from you in the future?

Out next is Drums of Death – Venice Beach (Whole Sick Remix) on 9th April, after that I’ve just wrapped up my ‘Do The Do’ EP for Sounds of Sumo which should be out in May. There’s an EP to come on Four40 Records, and some new collaborations with Tomb Crew and Morcee in the pipeline. I’ll be out at Snowbombing next week and in Ibiza this summer, other than that just keeping busy writing new music and playing UK shows.
