Belgrade proved to possess the nuanced cultural identity that was necessary to bring Ensh to life. This uniqueness, wrought from its straddling of west and east, creates a contrast that can only be described as tumultuously Zen. Vujosevic took advantage of his new fount isolation becoming a one-man-and-his-laptop powerhouse of sumptuous vocal dynamics atop a foundation of programming. His surroundings also armed him with a wealth of fresh thematic material, ranging from his interactions with Belgrade's seedy underbelly to the threat of falling prey to tourist traps Westerners stereotypically fear.
While decidedly synth and sample driven, Ensh retains an immediacy uncommon to the genre with the rawness of Milenko's distinctive voice at the forefront. The music carves its own resolute niche alongside the roomy electronics of present-day innovators such as Bjork and The Knife. After the independent release of his debut EP "Belgrade" Ensh took the road playing all over Europe/UK in venues, bars, squats and galleries winning over audiences with his engaging live show. With several tour/festival dates under his belt including Indie Week, Canadian Music week and Ireland's prestigious Electric Picnic festival Ensh has been able to fulfill his endless wanderlust.
His sophomore EP "Both Of Them Milenko" picks up where the previous effort left off. Featuring singles "Cuti," "Nedavno" and Can't Turn It Off" the EP is a better produced, naive meandering of pop music and concepts featuring songs in both English and Serbian. 'Both Of Them Milenko' album is now available everywhere online.
