Real Name: Eric Jao
Position: DJ Instructor (McLean, Herndon)
As a kid, Enferno spliced together tracks from his favorite cassette tapes to create seamless mix tapes. Soon after getting his first DJ setup, Enferno (also a trained pianist) practiced for hours a day, and played local parties. After graduating college, Enferno saw a tape of the DMC DJ competitions, and was hooked. A few years later, he won the DMC USA Championship (2nd in the Worlds), and made music his career. In 2006, Enferno created the next progression in live DJ performance: the Live Remix Project (LRP). Through the LRP, Enferno becomes a one‐man band, playing and sampling synths, drum controllers and turntables to create live music. Enferno’s LRP got him noticed by Madonna, who invited him to be her DJ on the 2008‐2009 Sticky & Sweet world tour. While on the tour, Enferno also helped create and program musical arrangements for the show. Today, Enferno balances studio work with jetset life as he travels the world weekly for his own tours.
