Qool DJ Marv‘s third exclusive mix is ready – another episode of our monthly Gramaphone on NYCROPHONE!
I can’t emphasize enough how much we appreciate Marvin’s selections. His passion and knowledge in music is priceless, the love and energy he puts into his craft immense.
We are truly lucky that this man decided to provide NYCROPHONE with a blend of beautiful music once a month. Each time he updates himself with what’s happening on our blog, to then develop a theme around us, the way he feels and the vibe of the current season. He gathers 50+ songs, listening through all of them, narrowing it down to what perfectly works in his mind and eventually our ears. This is just to give you a slight idea of the creative process behind this…
This month’s set is inspired by Qool DJ Marv’s trips to Croatia to play at a music festival. “DJs were on from noon and you could hear a set like this during the afternoon. I went there in the visualization and that’s what you hear.”
In Marvin’s words: “This mix is for the sun worshipers. It’s length is long enough to play once or twice during an afternoon of drinking vitamin D through your skin. Songs of love and encouragement braided with songs that enhance your daydreams and give you that far away look in your face. It whistles along, dances in polyrhythm and soothes like the softest reassuring eyes. For the deep bronze or the magnificent mahogany play this twice – once for your face and once more for your bass.”
NYCROPHONE is extremely proud to announce our first DJ collaboration! We are pleased to welcome soul brother Qool DJ Marv, an extremely experienced, versatile and talented disk jockey from New York City.
