Monster® was founded nearly 35 years ago with the singular goal to enhance the audio sound experience. Monster’s rich tradition of High Performance A/V cables, speakers, and pro audio equipment has built an unparalleled reputation amongst aficionado’s and consumers a like.
While continually seeking to build on its legacy, and innovate, Monster has bolstered its ties with key lifestyle tastemakers including The DJ!! Because Monster has grown the “Monster DJ Commission” roster and its “Salute The DJ” initiative, a new relationship has been formed. DJ Infamous and Monster have aligned to support DJ culture and advance the appreciation of superb sound quality in audio equipment.
Monster’s initiative began with a handful of DJs and a goal. The goal was and continues to be to appreciate, promote and cultivate the DJ lifestyle. Those DJs chosen are the “leaders of the pack” in DJ culture. It’s inherent in the definition of a “DJ Trendsetter” to be a pioneer and vanguard amongst their peers. DJ Infamous’s reputation and resume exemplify what Monster was looking for.
DJ Infamous is more than just a DJ, he’s an entertainment powerhouse. One of Atlanta’s most sought after DJs, known worldwide for his mixtape collaborations and legendary club performances. You can find Infamous on any given night ROCKING ATL’s most popular clubs ie. Reign Nightclub, Prive Lounge, Compound, and The Velvet Room. Infamous has toured the world, and has collaborated on projects with some of urban music’s biggest artists such as Ludacris, T.I., YoungJeezy, KanyeWest, Jay-Z, 50Cent, and RickRoss.
The youngest in the music game to do it, Calvin “DJInfamous” Donald was born in Lansing, Michigan. DJing since the age of 11, at 15 he was offered a live slot on 88.9FM, a college radio station at Michigan State University, through which he gained an unforeseen notoriety throughout the city. After graduating from high school, Infamous attended Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University in Huntsville, AL where he was hired as music coordinator for National Basketball Development League (NBDL) team, the Huntsville Flight. Infamous also became a mix-show DJ and radio personality on Power 93.3FM, a new radio station in Huntsville, AL. There he hosted the popular 5o’clock rush hour mix as well as his own radio show on Sundays. Shortly after his stint at Power 93.3FM, Infamous landed an internship in the programming department at Atlanta’s #1 urban radio station, V-103FM. In 2005, he graduated to having his own weekly mix-show, making him the youngest DJ to mix on a major radio station in Atlanta. After working hard, in 2011 Infamous progressed into to having his very own show entitled The Takeover Show every Saturday from 6pm – 10pm.
Since then, Infamous has gone on to become the first Atlanta–based member of the coveted Heavy Hitters DJ crew managed by DJEnuff with notable members DJ FelliFell, DJProstyle (106&Park), and KanyeWest. His mixtapes have garnered numerous press placements on MTV and BET. He’s become a prominent radio personality on V-103, in addition to Infamy Radio on Sirius/XM. His weekly show on Satellite is co-hosted by super-producer DonCannon and comedian LilDuval.
In 2011, he signed on as the newest promotional DJ with Ciroc Premium Vodka and as Island DefJam recording artist Ludacris’s official tour DJ. In 2012 Dj Infamous released his highly anticipated first single “Itchin” featuring National Recording artist FUTURE. With the success of his first single, DJ Infamous was offered an album deal with E1 Music in 2013. With plans to continue his rein, DJ Infamous has quickly transformed from the “Youngest in Charge” to the “MainEvent!”
