Qool DJ Marv (NYC) On The Main Ingredient 11/23!

Qool Marv, whose sets were a major inspiration for me to start DJing, is going to come by The Main Ingredient next week and share a guest set from his deep, deep crates. Not to be missed.

Marv’s Bio:

There is a method to the magic in the way Qool DJ Marv presents and plays music. He tunes into the atmosphere of the venue and the energy of the people, and then he blends what he sees with what he hears. Intertwining many styles for many faces from many places, Qool DJ Marv captivates you with his blend. The fluid flow and continuously ascending momentum of his wide-ranging sets is inviting, hypnotic, and breathtaking. Qool DJ Marv crafts an unforgettable feel good, get down party where everyone in the room will hear something that they enjoy. It’s as if he knew you were coming.

An inventive pioneer, Qool DJ Marv deliberately defies categorization to great effect. An evening of Qool DJ Marv may include a mind boggling array of selections spanning many eras and decades of music including R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Latin, House, Jazz, Funk, Rock & Roll, Soul, and Disco classics, and Eclectic beats from around the world.

Since 1994, Marv has been producing mixed tapes/CD compilations that illuminate the many styles of music that he loves but have fallen short of major exposure and marketing. Listeners enjoy the meticulous attention to the sequencing and the seamless continuity of the mixing. Qool DJ Marv has a way of introducing genre-defying songs to listeners who previously may have only preferred popular mainstream offerings.

With a DJ resume that includes playing at venues in every major American city, worldwide and at special events of the entertainment elite, Marv has maestro’d parties in Barcelona, Moscow, London, Glasgow, Oslo, Dublin, Dubai, Paris, and the Bahamas with his good time grooves and has played at several premiere parties for HBO (Sopranos, Sex in the City, Entourage, The Wire and Oz) as well as playing at HBO’s Emmy and Golden Globe after parties in Hollywood.

It’s Qool DJ Marv’s laid-back demeanor and the playfully enchanting smile that you first notice. He is genuinely pleased to meet you and despite his even keel, he’s bubbling at the thought of what he has in store for your listening, dancing, and celebratory pleasure. There’s an exuberant idealism in Marv’s appealing mix that bridges us all – with a universal vibe, everybody gets down.
