Jorge has been a great friend of ours here for over ten years.
Born in Acarigua, Venezuela with parents from Cuba & Spain, DJ Jorge Ojeda hails from Miami, Florida since the early age of 9 months. He began his DJ career at the age of 11 in the early 80‘s. Growing up in the most southern part of Miami known as Cutler Ridge/Perrine, he was inspired by the mix of music that merged from the late 70’s Disco, Funk, and contemporary Dance releases of that time.
As the sound of Electro Funk and Latin Hip Hop Dance music began to flourish out of New York and Miami, he was also drawn to the new sound developing out of Miami’s underground: Electro Bass. By the time he was 15, he already established his name and the name of his DJ crew “The Sound Of Destiny DJ’s”; known for the fiercest Electro Funk, Miami Bass, and Freestyle sets on the streets of Miami. This would open doors and land him as a mixologist on Miami Latin radio station Super Q 107.5, where Ojeda would not only mix Disco classics and Freestyle but include the formula of Electro Funk and classic Synth-Pop to the mix of Hi-NRG and Italo Disco imports. He was a master mixer on “La Disco-Teca del Aire alongside Miami’s own legendary broadcasting DJ, Maria Cristina Ruiz. Through the mid to late ’80s, with his popular following, Ojeda joined the Urban Hip Hop/R&B station Rhythm 98.3 FM, which was programmed under the direction of “Funky Frank” Walsh. DJ Jorge Ojeda was notorious for some of the fiercest Electro Funk, Miami Bass and 80’s Rap sets. In the process, DJ Jorge Ojeda was breaking and introducing many Dance records and artists at the street level via urban radio. Later, after the end of the Rhythm days Jorge Ojeda would join another radio station and introduce his master mixes and remixes on Miami’s, Power 96.5 FM.
Today, DJ Jorge Ojeda makes his home on Wepa.Fm with his own radio show entitled “ Master Mix Sessions. His long time friend, John “J Cool Suave” Ramirez, also joins Ojeda. Master Mix Sessions plays the best in Electro, House, Progressive, Tribal, Breaks, and NEO-Freestyle, and it’s on every Friday & Saturday night from 10pm to 2am est, Miami.
