OOT – you’re making a name for yourself out here…What do you go by?
“My names Dj SEV-ONE, I Dj for Travis McCoy from Gym Class Heroes and many other artist. I Dj all around Philadelphia. I’ve  worked at Club 27, Club Roxy and also many other bars. I also have 3 residents at Parx Casino Club 360 ,Da Bar &HammerHeads and  also special event places in Philly”.

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?
“If you would like to check me Out?  I dj on tuesdays at Hammerheads in Northeast Philly as well as Parx Casino on fridays and Da Bar In Levittown on saturdays. Also check me out on Facebook at Facebook.com/DjSevOne or on Instagram @djsev_one.”

Regional DJ Competition Spins into Voyeur Nightclub in February


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+.

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!

MeI’m DJ Stampone (Mike Stampone). I’m 22 years old and in just six short months, I’m arguable the number one DJ in Northeast Philadelphia, I was born and raised in the Rhawnhurst section of Northeast Philadelphia. I graduated in 2009 from Northeast Highschool where I was very athletic. But mostly with baseball. It was not until two summers ago that I realized that I could possibly be a DJ.

I was playing music off my Ipod at a house party in the summer of 2011 and I realized that I had everybody up dancing and singing the whole time. That was the day I noticed I had great song selection, which is key for DJ’ing. So I said to myself, “Can I really be a DJ? Can I really go out in public and do this as a living?”. But it was not until this past June that I actually started taking it seriously. My first gig was an 8th grade graduation party. Then the word spread about me. I started to get a great following from adults, all the way down to the kids, and of course my great family and friends.

I play every kind of music you can imagine. From Sinatra, to Avicii, to Jason Aldean, and back down to Usher. I really do love and play every kind of genre of music. I’ve always felt that to be a good DJ, you just play the music you like. But to be a great DJ, you must open your mind to others. Get to know and enjoy their style of music and genres. Be about the people and not about yourself. Go out in the public, introduce yourself to strangers that came to see you DJ, and make conversation. But most of all, show off your personality. That way every time your fans come to see you perform, they feel like they know you personally.

For equipment…I have my Laptop with the DJ program, Mixer, Headphones, and Microphone. I DJ all over Northeast Philadelphia and recently just started DJ’ing at PBR Bar & Grill inside Xfinity Live Philadelphia in South Philly. I also have recently started DJ’d in New York City by Times Square. I will also be traveling to Atlanta in February to perform as well. The places I work in the Northeast are Hammerheads, Alberts Cafe, Paddy Whacks Welsh Road, and JJ’s Irish Pub (Formerly The Bogside Irish Pub). Thursdays I’m at Paddy Whacks, Saturdays I’m at JJ’s, and Sundays I’m at Hammerheads (The number one bar in Northeast Philly).

I also make a lot of guest appearances and do many private events all over the area.
