Enaj Enajski does digital stuff. ‘Digital’ means a lot of different things to different people. Some say that it’s the future, others that the revolution will not be digitized. Some delineate a fundamental break between analogue and digital while others blur the boundary between self and other. For Enajski ‘digital’ means a constant wave of reconfiguration that occasionally yields stable forms. As humans we cherish stable forms as their predictability is what helps us stay alive. However, it often seems to be the case that amidst these crystallizations we lose track of the flux itself.

He was brought into music at an early age. Went to music school from the age of six learning the medieval – and now a days pretty obscure – instrument recorder. His first handwritten transcriptions were from Norwegian/Swedish dance bands with tunes he had heard from other kids in kindergarten. At the age of ten Audun picked up his first bass guitar – and from that moment he was pretty much sure which frequencies he would spend most of his time with.
During his years at University Audun played all kinds of music from bluesy rock with “Norwegian Grammy” winners called Grande, toured with Polish avant-garde “yass” band called Spejs and started playing with the bands Nutopia and Michael Aadal Group.
Audun always had the desire for folk and traditional music from around the globe, so that’s more or less how he spent the last five-ten years on getting really in depth with. After he borrowed his double bass to the bass player in the Hungarian Roma music ensemble Parno Graszt he became determined he was going to spend quite a lot of time trying to make this approach possible to adapt to different musical expressions. Today he is making his living as a happy slapper/bower/pizzicato’er and music composer/arranger.

Musical horizons begin at Minor Threat hook of A Tribe Called Quest or Mulatu Astatke to eventually be dominated by Squarepusher and Autechre. He treats his music as a retreat from reality, often allows the composition drift in any direction. And it’s safe to say that he doesn’t give a damn about your rhythm needs.

Until recently, under a different alias, he has been associated with the most twisted variety of electronic music. For his repertoire he tries to select pearls that are complicated in terms of rhythm and sound and which are usually avoided by an average John Smith standing behind the decks. He presented his unique style and technics of playing in almost every nook of his home country – Poland. He has also had a chance to perform in Belgium and England. He is addicted to the absorption of huge amounts of varied music and has a quiet and long-lasting fascination for intelligent electronics from the verge of IDM, Glitch, Breaks, Nujazz and Experimental, quite often sprinkled with a solid dose of bass. All of the above are the main reasons for his sound preference changes.
Polish producer from Berlin. His musical interest are set in the area of complex structures of glitched sounds and esthetic failure-on-purpose. He cooperated with Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet on the “Polka Remixed” project. Hi is also a part of a duet called IWASHOMEANYWAY.
