Hailing from St. Petersburg, it was way back in 2003 that a young Alexey Egorchenkov first got the taste for his musical drug, Drum & Bass. Like many others before him he became hooked, dabbling with his own production and DJing soon after. Taking the artist name Enei his career began to blossom giving him star status in his beloved Russia.
2007 saw Enei earn his first official release on the Dutch label Fokuz and quickly followed more imprints on such labels as Blu Saphir and Cyanide. Whilst his productions and profile began to grow, a certain eagle-eyed label boss renowned for his supreme A&R skills, kept close tabs on him; it wasn’t long before the phone call was made and Kasra secured the first Enei release for Critical Music at the end of 2010. The rest, as they say, is history.
