Just released through his own co-founded label Crispy Crust Records is “Make The Record Skip” from ESKEI83. The German DJ champion and producer is focusing on making music that incorporates a live performance element.
He certainly achieves this with his latest track. Whilst it captures his typically weighty bass signature, vinyl scratches, and needle effects are woven into the mix. Quite simply, it makes you feel like you’re listening to it live. ESKEI83 says: “As a DJ with a long and successful Turntablism and DJ battle background, performing my tracks live was always very important, and still is. I scratch, do work with a sampler/drum pads and use turntables. My sets stand out because I’m not just playing tunes; I actually do something during the set. Especially in EDM/bass music, it’s not very common that DJs do more than just playing tracks.”
In 1998 he bought his first equipment and started working on his own beats at home. In doing so, King taught himself corresponding skills, His first appearances were in youth houses and smaller clubs. After graduation, König moved to Dresden to complete an apprenticeship as a media designer. Since 2005 he works as a full-time DJ.
