If DJ Enferno was only known as the guy Madonna picked to cut up samples and assist in remix productions for her sold out Sticky & Sweet World Tour, he could look comfortably back on an illustrious and successful career. But for Enferno, a veteran club DJ, turntablist, production guru and creator of the much-lauded Live Remix Project, the tour is simply the natural progression to a continuously bourgeoning career.
Long before he would land onstage with Madonna, Enferno was working tirelessly to master his craft – honing his crowd reading, scratching and beat juggling skills in area clubs. After winning the U.S. DMC Championship in 2003, his reputation as a technical wizard was solidified. He continued to increase his exposure in the club world, touring all over the USA, Asia and parts of Europe, taking club audiences by storm with his combination of musical knowledge, crowd control and championship technical skills. But he knew there was more.
Thus spawned the Live Remix Project – a “one-man symphony” incorporating turntables, instruments, effects and samplers that combines musical virtuosity with technical proficiency. LRP draws on a myriad of Enferno’s skills to upend the traditional idea of deejay “set.”
Today, DJ Enferno is showing no signs of resting on his laurels. In 2009, Enferno has already successfully combined his club mixing with his Live Remix techniques in a hybrid “DJ vs. Musician vs. Producer” performance suitable for both clubs and live stages. On the production end, Enferno is building on his tour experience, hitting the studio hard. Look for more remix releases by Enfenro in 2010.
