“The faded vignettes of his childhood demonstrate a lifelong fascination with music. He views his life through an overlapping sequence of tracks and artists, all of these musical influences converging to create the Master Track of his present day self.” 


- Dean “Whodeani” Jones, best friend and mentor

 Roman Shkuratov (born June 7, 1992), better known by his artist name "enryoki", is a Russian electronic music producer and designer from Saint-Petersburg. He releases his music under his own label WEMU.

 His music can be attributed to genres like ambient, drone, experimental and techno. Most of his tracks include specific cosmic sounds, created by different synthesizers and patches, through his own hands.

 This solid, deep and warm sounding musical environment is one of the the key trademarks of this talented musician.

 enryoki is inspired by these great names like Jon Hallur (CCP Games "EVE Online" OST), Mike Morasky (Valve "Portal" OST), Alexei Zakharov (Egosoft's X-universe games OST). 

 Another main source of inspiration are big producers and musicians, along the lines of deadmau5, M83, Apparat, Daft Punk, Moby, Royksopp, Sigur Ros, Boards of Canada, Air and many more.

the timeline

Born 7th of June, 1992

  • 1998~2003 Was skiing with a pro team (big travelling influence)

  • 2006 I think I started my drawing/painting lessons somewhen here.

  • 2008~2009 Shuffling (dance) Learning filming and video editing .Also some funny hardstyle production attempts in FL Studio.

  • 2009 - 1st University (Industrial design) *failed* Here I also started learning about photography.

So I first started making music in 2012 (I believe), shortly after that I dropped out of university and started freelancing on the internet, making logos while learning how to write music. By that time I found deadmau5’s livestreams and quickly became his hardcore fan. There is where I learned all the basics about music production in a DAW (Ableton).
