DJ Enrie
From the radio to clubs, DJ Enrie has built a reputation for his diversity in moving and adjusting with the times. His legendary mix show residency on Los Angeles-based hip-hop radio station Power 106 put him on the map, while his DJ skills continue to set him apart from the pack.

From his early days practicing daily in his basement in New York to becoming a Los Angeles radio legend, DJ Enrie has definitely earned the respect and admiration of all those who have listened to him. The versatile DJ started building his career back in 1984, in Queens, New York. He bought his own turntables and mixer, then started practicing every day after school.

In 1987, Enrie moved to Los Angeles and started working the club circuit. In 1992, he landed a gig at the American Record Pool and received the opportunity to mix on L.A. radio station Power 106 alongside DJ legends Richard Humpty Vision and Tony B. He was hired almost immediately and eventually landed the spot mixing for the infamous “Saturday Night Street Party” (7pm-midnight).

In 1994, Enrie was given the opportunity to mix for the “Power Workout” on Power 106 (Monday thru Friday 12pm-1pm). Over 1 million people tuned in everyday to check out Enrie’s flawless mixes. Enrie was a pioneer; he brought house music to the mainstream in Los Angeles by breaking records like Bucketheads, Planet Soul, and Robin S. During this time Enrie released a series of mix CDs. His first mix CD, Work It sold over 100,000 copies. As each album was released, his popularity grew nationwide and he toured the country.

In 1999, Enrie set a Guinness Book of World Records for mixing 44 hours straight on Hollywood Blvd. In 2005, Enrie launched a career in television. He hosted and produced a video mix show on LATV (KJLA Los Angeles) called “Bump Dat.” Later that year, he started his own company "www.my12inch.com". My12inch.com is currently the largest digital music pool servicing MP3s and video to DJs and VJs all over the world.
