Enferno and Shiftee, also known as E.A.S.Y., have shared a video of themselves performing their future bass single, “Like That.” The three-minute visual showcases the duo’s controllerism and turntablism skills. Watch it above and stream the track on SoundCloud.
Shiftee is considered one of the most skilled turntablists and controllerists in the world. But unlike some of his peers, the two-time DMC World Champion is dedicated to integrating both art forms with the club world.
During an interview with FACT TV at SXSW, Shiftee spoke about his mission to spread turntablism to a larger audience. Specifically, the New Yorker discussed his group with Enferno and mixtape series with grime artist Elijah.
Shiftee said that while turntablism is mostly about technique, his and Enferno’s goal is to make it more about the music, so it connects with more people.

Up until now, Enferno and Shiftee’s duo E.A.S.Y. has self-released their original tracks. DJ Craze has been a supporter from the start, though, and just signed their latest single “Pop Music” to his label, Slow Roast Records. Watch above as E.A.S.Y. performs the dream trap-influenced track on the fly, assisted by turntables, controllers and keyboards.
“Proud to have the homies E.A.S.Y. releasing ‘POP MUSIC’ on Slow Roast. A combination of top-notch musicianship and turntablism … This $#!T is plain ole GOOD!! Enjoy!!” – DJ Craze
In addition to being elite turntablists and controllerists, Enferno and Shiftee aka E.A.S.Y. produce original material that stands on its own. With their new track “Coming Around Again,” the duo combines elements of dream trap, instrumental hip-hop and turntablism in a way that has a similar vibe to Keys N Krates. Don’t get us wrong though, E.A.S.Y. has its own sound, and Enferno and Shiftee’s technical prowess is among the best.

Two months after dropping their debut video, E.A.S.Y. (Enferno and Shiftee) have returned to remix A-Trak’s latest single, “Push.” The melodic and drum-heavy rework, which can be downloaded on SoundCloud, has also received a humorous video. The two-and-a-half minute routine features the DMC champions dressed in a variety of outfits (wigs included) while staying true to the “#RealDJing” movement.

A couple days ago, former DMC Champions Enferno and Shiftee began beefing on Twitter seemingly out of nowhere. Fans around the world immediately took notice, with some fueling the fire and the legendary Craze instigating a battle.

After a series of back-and-forth insults, it was decided yesterday that Enferno and Shiftee would battle each other Thursday morning via Ustream with Craze as the referee. Fans we’re pumped to say the least.

Things didn’t turn out as expected though. To the surprise of many, there wasn’t a battle at all but rather a partnership between the two in the form of a new group called E.A.S.Y. Instead of posting a Ustream link, the DJs shared their debut #LiveRemix video, which is a parody of Andy Samberg’s SNL skit, “When Will The Bass Drop.”
They also posted an original track to their newly-launched SoundCloud account:
According to E.A.S.Y.’s website, the group is intended to “start a paradigm shift in the way we think about DJs and live performance.” It makes a lot of sense: Enferno and Shiftee are often considered two of the most technically innovative DJs in the world and they’ve proved that time and time again through impressive solo routine videos and live performances.
