Voted "Best Club DJ" by the readers of the Monterey County Weekly

Carmel CA, May 2016

Nightlife and quaint Carmel aren’t exactly synonymous. But one of the liveliest dance floors in the entire county — to the chagrin of the powerful Carmel Residents Association, which also tried to block the name — belongs to Barmel. Solid touring acts such as the Waymores and No New Friends visit the tiny stage constantly, but the most dancing happens with Wondir on the wheels of steel.

"Hanif Wondir isn’t one of those Top 40 button-pushers whose catalog barely scratches the early ’90s; he’s the official DJ of Pebble Beach and L.A. Food & Wine with real-world hip-hop experience, having shared stages with the likes of De La Soul, Macklemore and Talib Kweli, with the kind of think-outside-the-boom box know-how needed to help turn any private party, special event or wedding into an all-night blowout." ​

"I use to know an enlightened being who claims to have reached this state while DJ-ing. Wondir is the kind of guy who makes me actually believe this is possible. He creates a fantastic vibe-- spreading smiles and connecting friends & strangers in the universal language of music. His great smile doesn't hurt either."

"Hanif was recommended by our coordinator, so I didn't have to look far before I found him...and now I feel silly for being concerned at all. He was able to get (and keep) everyone on the dance floor all evening. Even my grandmother was out there!"

"Hanif was our wedding DJ at La Mirada (the Montery Museum of Art) and was amazing. Gave us everything we asked for and had everyone out of their seats dancing. More than anything he was kind, accommodating, and told us we had nothing to worry about. He was right!"
