Qool DJ Marv takes us on a 3-hour, 4-decade, 5-Borough tour of New York records.
Qool Marv is one of New York’s finest, most skilful and most respected DJs. As resident in the city’s Meatpacking District, Lower East Side and now Dumbo SoHo House establishments, and as HBO’s DJ of choice, the Philly native and three-decade New York citizen has played for everyone from Martin Scorsese and Oprah Winfrey, to Harry Belafonte and Prince.
Returning to I.NY after a one-week, three-set visit in 2017, Marv will feature with Aoife Nic Canna, Mark ‘Scope’ Murphy, and Donal Dineen at various events in this year’s programme. He has a Thursday night all to himself though, and will be touring New York music history at the I.NY Festival Club.
In his own words… “rocking Club anthems, B-Sides and game changing jams from all five boroughs of NYC for the head nodders, break dancers and urban stylers are what’s up and in store. Expanding upon the foundation of last year’s NYC Hip Hop Influences freestyle set, this time around it’s all about the jams with the groove to make you move, and the lyrics that became everlasting Hip Hop quotables.”
