More About DK Eng

 

As the new millennium approached, Eng sought to broaden his artistic horizons and to deepen his personal and spiritual roots by establishing a base in Asia--an interest that was first piqued when Eng extensively toured the continent with Snow in the mid-90s. Following personal and professional travels throughout Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China ,Singapore and Malaysia, Eng finally settled in Bangkok, Thailand in 1996, where he quickly established Dimsum Entertainment. Dimsum's first venture was “Fun Fun Fun” a million album seller for the Thai hip-hop artist, Joey Boy. This was followed by an album by Boyd Kosiyabong, Thailand's most ubiquitous songwriter whose songs have long dominated the Thai charts also selling millions, and Jack Sucarom's "Revolution of Love," another Thai chart topper. 

Eng then return back to the United States to joined AV8 Records (largest urban vinyl company in the USA) and Eightball Records (international club dance label) in New York as a consultant and adviser. 



In 2005, Eng brought Dimsum Entertainment back home to his native New York City to develop, produce and promote asian artists for the american market. Venus Butterfly, an all Asian female garage rock band is the first major project he is currently developing and producing. The band was being promoted through Underground Garage where Eng is a consultant, advisor and heads the Asian international department. 

Underground Garage was founded by Little Steven Van Zant and Alex Ewen. The Underground Garage radio show is syndicated on over 150 radio stations across the U.S., Canada, England and Singapore. The company also has two channels on Sirius satellite radio which broadcasts 24 hours a day and produces major rock festivals, concerts, tours, television shows and battle of the bands on MTV.

In 2009, Eng formed Road Warrior Entertainment with Underground Garage co-founder Alex Ewen and Eppy Epstein (founder of "My Fathers Place").
The company recently signed Marner Brown from London, England and Aeric Lee a Korean American artist from NYC to their new label.

Late 2009, Road Warrior Entertainment co-produced the Chang World Reggae Festival in Thailand with the artists Inner Circle, Diana King, Big Mountain and J C Lodge.


David Kenneth Eng brings together a vast music business experience garnered from all over the world and makes music truly a universal language.

Eng produced Kid Flash "He's In Effect" for Clarence Avant in 1998 on his Tabu/Sony label. 


In 1979 Eng formed Daven Records. One of the first bands he recorded and produced on his label was "The Blessed" featuring Walter Lure (lead vocalist and guitarist of Johnny Thunders and the Hearbreakers), Howie Pyro (Bassist of D Generation), Brad Barnett and Billy Stark.  It was an exciting era where Blondie, The Ramones, Talking Heads, NY Dolls, Patty Smith, Lou Reed etc. came from this NYC scene.
