DJ J Star was born in the Dominican Republic, then moved with his family to NYC at the age of 6. J Star was born into a musical family who, alongside with the vibrant and diverse music and cultural scene of NYC; exactly the Uptown Manhattan and The Bronx areas, influenced and inspired him to come up with his own unique style from mixing Hip Hop, House, Reggae, Salsa, Merengue, Rock and others; the thing which made him a staple in his neighborhood and the DJ community at an early age.
J Star is a sophisticated DJ with a rich academic and professional background. He graduated from the audio engineering school and soon after started internships in radio stations like Hot 97 and 103.5 KTU. In 2015, he was hired by Iheart Radio Power 105.1 as an on air mixer. In 2018, he parted ways with Power 105.1 to sign with Pitbullʼs station on Sirius XM ch. 13 for his now world-famous weekly show. He also teamed up with Jack Daniels in 2017 and worked with brands like NBA, Adidas, Nike, HBO, Dropbox and JBL just to name a few.
