Alongside the music, the photos, and the stickers were the newspaper and magazine articles—and these ended up in the metal filing cabinets, first in Adler’s office, and then in his basement.

The last week of of January DJ EFN began his promotional campaign to get the word out on his upcoming project “Another Time”. The campaign started with the first release “If U Run” featuring a lyrical onslaught by Killer Mike, KXNG Crooked (aka Crooked I) and hometown homie Webbz.

This being DJ EFN’s first studio album the veteran Miami-based DJ wanted to make sure he would grab people’s attention. To supplement the online assault DJ EFN (accompanied by Crazy Hood producer BeatsNdaHood) made his way to New York City to further get the word out on “Another Time” as well as his upcoming films (Coming Home: Peru, Coming Home: Haiti) that will air on Revolt TV. While in NY EFN appeared on the Ed Lover show (SiriusXM / Backspin), Tony Touch’s ‘Toca Tuesdays Show’ (Shade45 / SiriusXM), The Half Time Show (WNYU) and Statik Selektah’s “Show Off Radio” (Shade45 / SiriusXM).
