Warrior One

Like Cagney & Lacey, Hart to Hart, Hall & Oates…Nic & Eno were two peas in a Pod.  Eno was ying to Nic James’ yang but alas two years ago Eno upped sticks and moved to London, grew a beard and got serious.
Warrior One is his current project, Toejam resident DJ Nic James will take it from here…
If you went out to pubs and clubs in Dublin about three or four years ago then you almost certainly heard the famous Eno DJ at some point.  I met Eno in one of those weird after hours ‘art’ parties they used to (and occasionally still) have in shops and warehouses just off Capel street where he was playing old school rap and sixties rock to crusty ravers. Since then he’s played at almost every venue in Dublin, changing his mind weekly about what style of music he’s going to play ‘from now on…’. Eno is now over in Bow E3, in London town, making some fantastic music that’s getting love from DJs and clubbers across the UK’s capital. Warrior One is Eno, and Carl from Blackgrass (off of Brighton’s Catskills label), and their tunes take the sounds of minimalist baltimore club tracks by people like DJ Blaqstarr and the skippy rhythms of (UK) Funky and make something that sounds properly new and unique. They’ve got some great vocalists in studio, right now at this very minute versioning the riddims so I’m expecting some kind K.I.G. Family novelty dance based hit at the very least. Check the MySpace for the new tracks and as soon as all the record business business is sorted out I’ll post up some new stuff for download.
