OOT – you really seem to have a passion – how dedicated are you?
“I am fully dedicated and a Dj that takes my music seriously. I grew up around mostly all soul music with my parents listening to it 24/7. I  never liked that kind of music but the older i get the more I listen to this kind of music because it reminds me of my father that passed when I was 9 years old.The Name SEV ONE is in memory of when my father passed on july 17th. SEV ONE is 17 backwards For the date my dad passed.”

OOT What kind of music do you spin?
. “Most of the music I spin is late 80s and 90s hiphop which is why I seperate myself from other Djs. There nothing better then Old school Hiphop to me. I have a big personality and have no problem talking to anyone. I learned everything  I do now from my older brother named Jeff Davis aka Stress – The White Boy. My brothers got a gold record and has been in the game for some time.. If not For MY brother Jeff, I wouldnt be where i am today. How i got Linked Up With Travis McCoy From Gym Class Hereos was in 2004 on Vans Warped Tour.
I was doing a merchandise for another band my brother was on tour with. Me and Trav would bump into each other here and there but besides that we always linked up when it came to Art on Tour. I was 14 years old and making beats and wrting graffiti on Custom Trucker hats which is why I guess I kinda stuck out to him at such a young age.  All the rest was down hill from there. We became good friends and he’s like my brother till’ this day. I’ve  worked with T-Pain and him in Miami and I’m sure more shows in the future. I’m just young and trying to make a name for myself through art and producing as well as Djing.
OOT – Where are you working at present?

Regional DJ Competition Spins into Voyeur Nightclub in February

530046_460444824000253_2128121089_n

PHILADELPHIA, PA (January 29, 2013) – Worldwide DJ competition, Red Bull Thre3Style, is spinning its way back to Philadelphia for the US’ East Coast Regional Qualifier on Thursday, February 7.  Five of the best party rockin’ DJs from major northeast cities like New York, Boston and of course, Philly, will be mixing their hearts out to compete for a spot in the Red Bull Thre3Style National Finals, which hits LA this spring. There may not be any brotherly love behind the turntables this time around because the payout is higher with a place at the World Finals in Toronto (where Red Bull Thre3Style got its start) at stake.

Red Bull Thre3Style is a DJ competition that gives local popular DJs the opportunity to be globally relevant. Philadelphia was chosen as the East’s Regional hub because of its vibrant culture and arts scenes. Philly has housed many internationally respected DJs such as King Britt and Diplo as well as other artists entrenched in the music sphere like The Roots, Jill Scott and hip hop legend Schoolly D.

The Red Bull Thre3Style Regional Qualifier will be hosted by Philly-native and major player in the international DJ community, RICH MEDINA.

“Philadelphia has always been one of the more fertile training grounds in America”, said Rich Medina of his hometown. “…For DJ’s and DJ culture. From the bedroom to the club to the radio to international touring”.

The night will be judged by some of the world’s best DJs: A-TRAK, JAZZY JEFF and Z-TRIP.

Local DJ PHSH will be repping Philly and getting the crowd stoked on their hometown hero. “This is the starting point, it’s good to be able to just elevate from here,” PHSH said of his recent win. “I’m gonna bring the ruckus”.

Being no stranger to the national spotlight, Philadelphia produced the overall winner of Red Bull EmSee 2012, Mic Stew. Red Bull EmSee is a freestyle battle designed to find the best rappers in the country. Since taking the championship title this past year, Mic Stew’s career has been on the up and up and he has his Philly roots to thank.

“The music scene in Philly is the perfect incubator”, said Mic Stew of Ben Franklin’s old stomping ground. “You can find an audience and a venue to support any style you like to spin”.

Red Bull Thre3Style will give each DJ 15 minutes to perform at least three different genres of music in a competition to see who has the best mixing skills and can keep the crowd going all night long. The night will be held at Voyeur Nightclub, with doors open at 10PM and the competition starting at 11PM. The event is 21+.

Back in the Mid to late 2000’s DJ Mike Live was Part of a group of DJ’s, Bartenders and Promoters that took there success from there down town club experience and brought it to North East Philly where they Respectfully took your average Bar, Tavern or Restaurant and turned them in to what felt like a Down Town Night Club, it set the bar for the great party experiences brought to you today by your favorite establishments.

What sets me apart from any other DJ? “Well, each person is there own person and everyone has there own style and i respect everyone who puts effort in to doing what they love, i feel I’m different from others because i read my crowed well and i like to make things fun, yes I’m that DJ that will have a packed dance floor at 1am and play Girls Just Want To Have Fun or Like a Prayer, it makes things interesting. I also feel what sets me apart is that I’m always willing to learn from and collaborate with others, i never feel there is something i cant do and that your responsible for limiting your own abilities by not reaching out and trying new things.” So the question everyone wants to know, Why The Name Change? “Just time for a change “Yessir” will always be a part of me and it will stay attached to me in the future, it defined me for the past 9 years, But its time to get down to business and take a new approach on things, its a move for the better! There is a lot of good memories associated with yessir, its time to move forward, but i will never forget what i accomplished under that name and all the people who supported Yessir over the years, Just hope to continue to earn the respect and support of them on this New journey along with the support of many new faces.” DJ Mike Live, Who are you inspired by? I get alot of my inspiration from My Dad, growing up with the parents i have was a great experience, My Dad is a Big Funk/ disco/ ol’skool kind of guy and growing up on the sounds of artist such as George Clinton, Cameo, Prince, Kurtis Blow, Earth Wind and Fire, To the Bobby Brown, New Edition, Madonna and Michael, along with so many more, it was just always good music, also having a lot of older cousins who put me on to Slick Rick, LL Cool J and many more from the Hip Hop side of things and of course The FreeStyle Club Music, I can go hour’s spinning songs from Stevie B, Lisa Lisa, and all the legends of that movement. I really like the styles of DJ’s Like DJ Touch Tone, Jay Ski and Doc B, and There are a number of Local DJ’s that i could sit around and listen to for days, inspiration is never enough! Currently I DJ Wed nights and Saturday Nights at The Sheffield Tavern, Wed being a “In The Mix of All The Hit’s” type of Night and Saturdays are more of a Back in the Day Dance Party with a twist of the Hits, Fridays I DJ Joey O’s After hours and I’m working on a few new things that should be coming real soon.
