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.”
