DJ Obscene recently linked with Fox News Latino for a nice profile and feature. Here’s a a preview of the article, with the full link located below…

DJ Obscene or Jonathan Garcia (his real name), is young in the game—he’s 25 but he looks all of 17. He’s of Cuban decent and was born and raised in Miami. His look is nerd chic, glasses and skinny pants, hair is all jelled and pointy. His expressions while DJ’ing are beyond serious and border on a furrowed brow. When he’s behind the turntable, his can barely be seen.

He started mixing music on his computer at 14 and got his first set of turntables at 15. He’s been working the Miami nightclub scene like a pro ever since.

“What I admire about DJ Obscene is that he has always stayed loyal, he’s a hard worker, and he listens—which I feel are some of the most important details in the music business,” Pitbull says.

Obscene and Pitbull met in a Miami club, and have been working together for a few years. Now the Obscene mixes for all the biggies – Rick Ross, Flo Rida, and LMFAO.

His name came from a line in an Eminem song titled “Without Me” It’s me/I’m obscene. He says the name just stuck – it was intriguing and interesting and made people want to know what’s obscene about him.
