Mystified by the uniquely mixed, scratched and mashed up sounds flowing from his radio as a child of the up and coming “Bay Area” music scene, DJ E-Noc knew he would one day be on the other side of that speaker. Upon moving to Sacramento, CA, E-Noc met a local radio DJ, Tosh, at a frat party, who agreed to take E-Noc under his wing and mentor him. Like most beginning DJs, E-Noc cut his teeth as a DJ at college parties and local bars. After almost a year, he accomplished his longstanding goal of playing on-air on KBMB FM’s “Bomb Mixshow.” After reaching all his goals as a fledgling DJ, E-Noc he grew weary of Sacramento’s limited club/radio scene and sought out for greener pastures in Las Vegas.
Arriving in the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ with one goal in mind, to quit his day job, he focused all of his attention on networking and booking shows. In his endeavors to build bridges in the ‘City of Sin’, he crossed paths with Video DJ pioneer, DJ Girl 6. Like Tosh, she mentored E-Noc teaching him both video production and video DJing. Within a month E-Noc was video DJing his own custom edits on the Las Vegas strip. His growing skill set won him shows opening for Everclear, Everlast/ House of Pain, Steve Aoki’s Autoerotique, and Bacardi, Red Bull and Captain Morgan sponsored events. With his custom video edits being in high demand, he was asked to post them for sale as part of a DJ Duo entitled ‘E6’ with DJ Girl 6. His logo animation also became popular with sponsors as well including, Jameson, Guinness, Ciroc, Bud Light Platinum, Bacardi and more. His brand grew and the higher paying shows followed including, House of Blues, Hard Rock Café’, Mandalay Beach, Foundation Room, Tabu, Moorea Beach Club, Sapphire Pool and Voodoo. After only eighteen months of working day and night at two jobs, he reached his goal of DJing full time.
Never being satisfied with stagnation, E-Noc used all his free time towards his schooling as an audio producer at Icon Collective in Los Angeles. As a recent graduate, he now posts custom audio and video edits on Crooklyn Clan (as E6). There’s no telling where E-Noc’s relentless drive will take him next.
On a personal note, E-Noc has a dry sense of humor. Even his name stems from his sarcastic nature. While in college, he worked as a teacher’s assistant in a computer lab on campus. The technicians were told to leave a cone on top of their screens if they were not available for student questions. Working as a teacher’s assistant, attending college and DJing at night became physically and emotionally draining. After nearly three months straight of leaving the cone a-top his monitor, his peers nicknamed him enoc (cone backwards). With a pound of sarcasm he replied, “thanks, now I don’t have to come up with a DJ name.” To this day he wears a pin on his DJ bag saying: “My soul was removed to make room for all this sarcasm.”
