    Recently got really into Enei and his darker style of D&B. What do you guys think of him? Unfortunately he hasn't come down to Toronto yet but im hoping he does sometime soon. Really think he's gonna blow up this year.

    The man's a genius, I'd back him to kill it in any style at any time.

    He'll certainly be around that's for sure but I doubt it will be as hyped as from 1-2 years ago when the Stonehead EP was fresh and tracks like Obsession / Count To Ten surfaced as he was working on his LP. Let's see I'm happy to be proven wrong!

    Looking forward to seeing how his sound evolves now he has done his first LP, but Russ and the guys are right, Enei has already smashed the granny out of the UK. Done.

    yeah i wanna see him add some more variation to his sound now.
    alot of his tracks are a bit samey, dont get me wrong im still a massive fan of his output but i wanna see what else he has to offer. the album gave us a sneak peak into this but i think there is more to come from him.

    yeah i live in toronto and a lot of my friends listen to drum and bass but none of them even knew about him until i mentioned him..i guess because hes primarily blown up in Europe but hope to see him do a show here sometime

    Someone like Sonourus will bring him to Toronto eventually. Enei is a great producer, I've been buying his stuff for a few years now.

    there wasnt much on the album to get me excited personally. Still some amazing tunes on there, i know hes capable of variation but i feel like often hes repeating a formula that works; but ultimately has got me bored of that sound eventually..

    Enei does the business every time...with the Watch Out and Overthinking remixes about to come out his quality is not under question. His album was right up there - just wish Elephants and Centrifuge/Saligia/Thin Line came out on record so I could play them! Hosted him over here in NZ last year, was a good dude (there was a language barrier tho) - not that great of a DJ but that's not his forte it seems

    since when does having a individual style make you stale...
    enei is far from stale.
    1 of dnb's best producers around imo

    I don't think there's a single tune I dislike by Enei, seriously.
