DJ EFN - Another Time (Cassette)


Another Time, DJ EFN’s first all original studio album is an ode to his mixtape past. Featuring production from the likes of DJ Premier, Buckwild and more - EFN assembles an impressive cast of legendary pioneers, buzz-worthy new school spitters and new comers on the rise.

“Miami’s Mixtape King” DJ EFN and his company Crazy Hood Productions has been a pillar in Miami for the better part of twenty years. A fan of the mixtapes emanating from New York City, DJ EFN began producing mixtapes of his own because no one else in Miami was doing so. “There was no consistent mixtape DJ in Miami, no one who ever really played the music from Miami,” he said in an interview with Julia Beverly of Ozone magazine. “Everybody listened to DJ Clue or Tony Touch. It was good music, but I didn’t want to hear shouts to Brooklyn or the Bronx. I wanted to shout out Miami and help to put on the local cats.”

EFN’s first Crazy Hood mixtape was issued in 1993. During the next two decades he produced 42 volumes, featuring not only Miami- based artists, but national stars. E’s particular mission has always been to represent a strain of gritty local hip-hop music that has more in common with the Boom-Bap sound than with the party music for which Miami is best known.
