Wild City #134: Eng.
31 May 2017
Having only been DJ’ing for a few years Kunal Lodhia a.k.a Eng. has quickly become known for his versatility as a DJ. Known for being able to play a diverse range of genres, his sets are recognised for their ability to surprise audiences while keeping them engaged and on the floor.
A member of Mumbai-based design collective WeThePpl, Eng. is also the man behind what is now probably one of the city’s most iconic parties Grime Riot Disco as well as the co-founder of Magnetic Fields Festival.
It goes without saying that a mix was well overdue.
Full of hidden treasures, his mix takes you on a soulful, melodic trip around the world, where you find yourself immersed in jazz tunes from Guinea ('Petit Sokou' by Bembeya Jazz National) and Zambia (‘Tsegulani’ by Musi-O-Tunya & Rikki Ililonga) before crossing continents to South America and China. Eng.’s diversity as a selector also comes to the fore in this brilliant collection of tracks. His first ever recorded mix.
"Cinematic, romantic, dark and playful. Inspired by old films, broken radios, folklore and psychadelics, Here's a mix for a Sunday afternoon with your lovers. " - Eng.
