Washington, D.C.-based turntable whiz DJ Enferno hits WMC just a few months after his marquee spot as official tour DJ for Madonna's winter Sticky Sweet tour. Besides keeping the energy high onstage, the battle-circuit champ, along with Madonna's musical director, Kevin Antunes, was charged with rearranging Madge's songs to fit the tour's groove-oriented vibe.
Since arriving home and enjoying a few months as a newlywed, Enferno has been, naturally, in high demand. He's had to give up his D.C. residencies to travel to new, farther-flung gigs, both for his innovative Live Remix Project (it is what it sounds like) and for his patented good-times club sets.
True open format is the name of his game, with rock meeting hip-hop meeting a little bit of house. But don't call him a mashup DJ. "I like mashups, but I'm not one of the DJs who plays that style where it's only mashups. That can get a little boring," he says. What you will hear, though, are a few of Enferno's unexpected rerubs of pop tracks, ranging from his own compositions for the Madonna tour to just-for-fun dance creations made from Coldplay — really.
