Qool DJ Marv LIVE at NYC DOPE Day Party at Harlem Beer Garden - August 11 2018

Great to DJ with Jon Quick and Marc Smooth, both of whom I go back with to my earliest days in New York. Quick and me, brothers in Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, reminisced about DJing together at the Brooklyn Y way back in 1993. Marc Smooth & Cosi are legends in New York as they carry forward, the music and energy of a brilliant era that many refer to as Golden. Well known for their foundation and growth of a party called Freedom, in 2017, they began a new groove called NYC Dope.

Ense - like insta for voice. Co-created by co-creator of Venmo, Iqram A. Iqram is also a musician and on this night, he was also host, technician, performer, set it up and break it down man...the last pic in this set (see IG link) is him, on the left, rolling up a carpet. Enriched and humble, amazing combination of attributes. Special bonus at the end of this set, a little bit of an impromptu jam session with Mamadou Ba and Marlon Saunders…with Iqram on supporting vocals.

Thank you HBO for having me conduct the musical atmosphere at events for series, films and documentaries. I can't say I imagined 20 years of getting that call. At the Fahrenheit 451 party last night (May 8 '18) you all could hear how concept meets execution and you could see how the party went from warm glow to blazing hot.

Once upon a time, about 13 years ago, or whenever the last season of the Sopranos was happening, I got the call to play the last gathering of that game changing series (I actually did a wrap party set up on set in Tony's kitchen once). After a few years of doing entertainment industry parties, I noticed a pattern... somewhat of a template or format that favored the safe and obvious. Humbly, I asked, during a meeting at HBO headquarters, if I could shatter that plain - buttressing my suggestion by offering to be the DJ equivalent of their classic motto from the 90s - "It's not TV it's HBO."

"Your events should not sound like any other network's party, your parties should be as unique as your programming." (Paraphrasing)

From there, I asked for the 1st 90mins of that Sopranos party to show what I had in mind. At some point Little Steven from Bruce Springsteen's band looked at me and gave me the thumbs up (I'd pitched doing a Classic Rock set to open the party) and the events folks noticed and also gave me thumbs up. Highlight of that night was having David Chase - creator of the Sopranos, come up on stage with his wife and they both told me how they noticed and enjoyed what I was doing with the music.

Side note to that story is that the Sopranos party was on a Sunday...the night before, I was in Paris and the night before that, I was in Ireland... BTW, friends in Ireland have offered me space for my 1st lecture that will weave DJ culture with sociology and a bit of history.

Happening in 2018!
