New York native ENYergon prepares to drop
second EP in ‘Trimurti’ trilogy
BROOKLYN, NY – As a child, Sais Black loved Transformers. He watched all the cartoons, he collected all the toys, and he could tell you everything about the world. For instance, he could tell you that the substance that gave the Transformers their power was something called “Energon”. And as he grew up and started discovering a natural ability as a rapper and musician, he knew he wanted to be an artist that displayed that kind of power to the world. And so it made perfect sense for him to adopt the stage name ENYergon. The pseudonym is an adaptation of Energon and the abbreviated version of East New York.
Today, ENYergon is a standout hip hop artist from New York whose initial EP, “Trimurti: Welcome to the Underverse”, gained him some major attention along the East Coast. Now he’s ready to follow that up with the second of a planned EP trilogy, “Trimurti 2: Breathe Life.” The trilogy of projects is inspired by the Hindu religion of Trimurti that is similar to Christianity’s holy trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
“I use that as inspiration, with each one about people who were close to me that I lost – my mother, brother and father,” ENYergon said. “Each EP is a different vibe. ‘Breathe Life’ is about breathing new life into hip hop, and really focuses on that kind of vibe.”
One of the things that set ENYergon apart from others in the industry is his subject matter. It’s easy to pigeonhole artists and put them in a box – painting them as only a trap artist, or a gangsta rapper, or an R&B aficionado. But ENYergon embraces versatility and said he is an artist who can be looked to as someone who creates a wide variety of music – something for the clubs, or something with deep lyricism, or something for the streets, and everything in between. Ultimately, it’s his subject matter and that versatility that set him apart.
“I just want my music to be looked at as versatile,” he said. “It’s everything to me. I can do hardcore, soft, love songs, lyrical, clubs songs – anything that kind of takes risks and goes against the grain. High risk equals high reward. It may not always work out but if it does, it’s gonna hit them, leave a memory and keep people intrigued. That’s the type of sense and reality I’m trying to inject into the genre – being unexpected and taking risks.”
The debut single from the new EP is “Mile Low Club” which will further demonstrate ENYergon’s versatility by bringing a smoother R&B vibe through a song that he calls a perfect single of “sexual intercourse on a train.” It serves as an appetizer of sorts, to whet the appetites of listeners before hitting them with an upbeat, powerhouse single in “Butterflies,” featuring the Songstress Jai Emm which is set to drop later this summer.
Another track from the EP, “American Nigga,” is a perfect example of that versatility. It explores the plight and pitfalls that society brings to the doorstep of his demographic.
“You might think it’s good, but it’s not,” he said. “There are things like materialism or detrimental cycles with family that set a bad example for the community and kids altogether. I don’t want to be an American Nigga. This song is a call out to the world and international community about what goes on within these borders.” There is an awakening going on in the black community that this song embodies. The full EP will be distributed across all digital distribution sites in September.
