Enamour
Enamour
As a curator of infectious grooves and wistful atmospheres, Enamour has developed a sound that delicately walks the line between deep introspection and pure club play. His sets are an intricate blend of deep, progressive, tech house and techno that values musicality over anything else.

With a number of releases under his belt on labels including Anjunadeep, Sascha Braemer’s ‘whatiplay’, mau5trap, and Lane 8’s ‘This Never Happened’ imprint, Enamour has already made quite an impact in the scene. His music has been supported by names all across the DJ spectrum, including Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Guy J, Oliver Koletzki, Above & Beyond, Jody Wisternoff, Lane 8, Eelke Kleijn, Tim Engelhardt, and many more. In just over a year he’s already caught the attention of two legendary dance music institutions--DJ Mag and Mixmag--the former naming him an artist to watch in their July 2018 issue and the latter handpicking him to join their Magnified team in January of 2019 alongside 11 other artists.

Enamour first grabbed the world’s attention working closely with Lane 8 and his label "This Never Happened", supporting him on both of his North America tours this year as well as remixing “Skin & Bones” off of Lane 8’s sophomore album. He has since been a regular appearance in all of Lane 8’s setlists, including his Essential Mix where he debuted two of Enamour’s tracks, forthcoming on the label later this year.

In the past two years, Enamour has made his mark in his hometown of Washington DC supporting some of the biggest names in dance music like Eric Prydz, Above & Beyond, Hot Since 82, and more at world-renowned clubs like Echostage, Flash, and U Street Music Hall. Recently he’s even become a hot name in remixes after a 5 month reign at the top of the Beatport Deep House charts. #1 in the Hype charts, and #37 on the overall Top 100 with his remix of Donatello’s “Tears”.

His other releases, including highlights such as the eclectic "Hypnotica EP", and his track "Ruby" on Anjunadeep have further demonstrated the breadth and quality of his productions but still only scratch the surface of his ability. This is just the beginning of the story for the young artist.
Baronhawk
Baronhawk
Nestled between Baltimore and Washington, DC in PG (Prince George’s) County, Maryland shaped life for artist Baronhawk Poitier. Spending the bulk of his youth sorting through records and other music memorabilia at The Record Exchange in Silver Spring, Maryland, exposed him to decades of music which heavily influenced his pursuit of a career in DJing and production. As a solo artist, he's played before Vanessa Williams, Nicky Siano, Grandmaster Flash, Slick Rick, DJ Spinna, Dubtribe Soundsystem, Metro Area, Disclosure, Claude Vonstroke, Oscar G, Chromeo Karizma/ Kaytronik and local DC legend Sam “The Man” Burns. The DMC DJ competition and turntablist event has featured him during several of the DC regional battles as one of their party-rocking favs. Poitier was recognized alongside mentor and teacher Kris Klayton aka Karizma/ Kaytronik with a grant from the Maryland Historic Trust and the Maryland State Arts Council in 2015. Together they presented a Baltimore style of dance music production to the entire community through a showcase at the Maryland Folklife Festival and the release of his first EP under the direction of Karizma for R2 Records. His passion for cultural preservation and artist recognition began while working under Junious “House” Brickhouse” as a Artistic Directors and Sound Designers for the 501(c)3 non-profit organization Urban Artistry Inc., an International Culture and Education Project founded in 2005. Serving as a steward for urban dance and music culture globally presented him opportunities to headline battles and dance competitions such as: "The International Soul Society Festival" (USA), “Jam On It” (Bulgaria), "Who Can Roast The Most" (USA), "Clash CPH" (Denmark) and the USA qualifier for the "Flow Mo Anniversary (FINLAND)."

Within LGBTQ dance music community he has earned a name for himself as a member of The NeedlExchange, a DC based, queer DJ collective with partners Bil Todd & Tommy Cornelis. Baronhawk plays an integral role building a resume for the artist group coordinating and playing events such as; Hot Mass (Honcho, Pittsburgh), Fag Bash (P Town) and opening sets for TNXDC showcases featuring The Honey Soundsystem, Sleazy McQueen, Gay Marvine, DJ Harvey, Horse Meat Disco, Kim Ann Foxman and Honey Dijon. Collectively by working through TNX and Urban Artistry, Baronhawk Poitier continues his passion for igniting dance floors into a frenzy while educating fans about cypher etiquette and culture.
