When it comes to live remixers, Washington, D.C.-based DJ ENFERNO immediately comes to mind. The former DMC champ has built a reputation for delivering creative and impressive routines in recent years, averaging over 100,000 views per video.
Now, returning for his first solo routine since 2014, ENFERNO has flipped Just Blaze and Baauer’s trap anthem “Higher.” The four-minute video includes scratching, juggling, finger drumming, and piano playing — at times simultaneously.
The performance has even inspired Blaze himself:

“I learned how to make music and develop my style [by] pulling sounds from the Internet and manipulating them on the laptop … For the first time, I got to get outside and find sounds and record them. In that way, it completely changed the way I make music.”
