Johnny Arcangel better known as DJ Matute was born on March 28, 1973 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He is the oldest brother of five (two brothers, two sisters) who moved to New York City in 1992.

He began his Deejaying gigs as DJ Matute. The name was given to him from a friend producer who was working on a rap song with him and a rapper (Don Gasto). It was when the producer said “Ustedes son el Duo, Don Gasto y Matute” (“You guys are the Duo, Don Gasto and Matute”) that the name stayed with him. DJ Matute learned how to mix music when his interest in Deejaying grew.

He currently works full time for the New York City Department of Transportation when he is not Deejaying. He enjoys music, loves to see people having a good time, and is inspired by his followers and the public. He is known for his sense of humor and always making people smile through laughter. His favorite hobby is playing Basketball with family and friends.

Occasionally DJ Matute conducts live interviews of Latin Artists that are streamed via his website
