Meet the DJ prototype: ESKEI83. Hailing from Dresden, Germany, he has it all: an ear for the crowd’s needs, impeccable technical skills and the ability to produce his own tracks that work in any given club around the world: From the Venue in Prague to the SoHo in New York. From the Belmont in Montreal to Zouk in Singapore. ESKEI83 is quite the globetrotter.
He’s a regular at Beatport’s Top 100 and Electronica Charts and entered the Top 40 of MTV’s Urban Charts a couple of times now. His original production, as well as the mind-boggling way in which he blends all kinds of genres, is embraced by international DJ heavyweights around the globe, with radio stations like Power106 or BBC Radio 1Xtra courting the man. ESKEI83 enjoys the trust of industry big names like Pioneer & Serato. His single “Fire” was placed in the Adidas ad campaign for “Glitch” and his latest tune „Rave“ has gained over 1 million Spotify plays already. In late 2014 ESKEI83, together with his good friends and fellow DJs Drunken Masters, founded the super-tasty Crispy Crust Records, where he’ll be releasing all of his feature material.
The man has been on a trophy hunt, becoming an 8-fold DJ battle winner and first ever German to win the Red Bull Thre3style World Championships, which – let’s be honest – is the only contest that really matters these days. If you want to see for yourself what all the fuss is about, catch ESKEI83 on tour. You won’t have to wait for long either, as he is on the road constantly, playing more than 120 shows a year, including some of the biggest festivals like Rock am Ring, splash! or Frauenfeld. And make no mistake about it: watching the maestro at work is an experience. He’s not satisfied with hitting a few switches and turning a couple of knobs. ESKEI83 takes Djing seriously. He kills it with skills. And he will make you shake that beautiful behind.
