My name is Jose A. Severino. I was born in Dominican Republic and came to the United States when I was 12 years old. At a young age I started showing interest in music, participating in Middle school and High school talent shows. During my high school years in New Brunswick, New Jersey I started listening to DJs like Jesus Citronelle (To’ Mixiao), Notty Coto, and Johnny Famorali (La Original Mega Mezcla from New York City). That is when my interest for the DJ life started developing. I remember going to the Hispanic Cultural Festival to help set up and watch other DJs perform. While being in high school in the early 90’s, I was the DJ for a few underground basement parties (Hookie Parties). After high school I basically made Deejaying my career. I became an Audio Engineer at CPCC community college in Charlotte, North Carolina. Through out the years I have Deejayed in many Venues from New York, New Jersey, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. I also became a member of a few DJ crews like LaMezcla.com. I was co-owner of an online radio station and now I’m working on my own project called The Queen City Mix. People can find me on social Media @Djjochielnegro, www.soundcloud.com/djjochielnegro, jochielnegro@hotmail.com and www.mixcloud.com/Djjochielnegro. All I can say is that after more than 20 years of being a Dj, I’m still learning this art.
