Marvin has had a love for music from the age of 7, growing up in a creative household in Hackney his first instrument was the clarinet. Aged 16 Marvin started collecting vinyl’s and playing out at house parties and small bars, creating remixes and making mix tapes. Around this time Marvin became involved in his first hip hop group called Kontrast writing rhymes and developing a deeper passion for producing rather than rapping.
In his early twenties Marv began work as a music technician at B6 college in east London, where he remained for 12 years teaching music tech, sound engineering and production. In 2015 Marv made the move out of London to Reading , where he took a position as a vocational tutor at the local college. Marv is well respected by his students and feels proud of the support he has given to so many others on their musical journey.
Over the years Marv has developed his talents on keys and guitar (most recently bass) and is passionate about composing productions electronically with a view to them being played on live instruments. Marv cites diverse influences ranging from DJ Premiere to Hans Zimmer. Marv has created a remix for Wycliffe Jean which has been released on digiwaxx.com and is currently developing a strong connection with artists in Canada creating remixes for Ray Robinson and Shi Wisdom.
Marv has over 20 years of experience in all aspects of the industry from djing to producing, he actively enjoys making remixes and producing original tracks in his impressive home studio.
