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. The series “Beats, Jazz, & Soul” and “Qool Classics” are adored by people from all walks of life from all over the globe.

    Session 2 of Qool DJ Marv

    Security Cam Monitors What He Makes

    Inspiration for the main screen of my livestream – Qoolstreams of Consciousness – comes from the big screen TVs, which are above eye level and just beyond the entrances, of most delis and markets in New York City. On those TVs, me, you and everybody are watched and recorded…for security and loss prevention purposes.

    Anti-theft theater.

    I like flipping scripts. Deconstructing the watching me for what I might take energy and reconstructing it, braiding it with the concept/personal reality of being black me. In the fine print of the job description of being black is that part about the non-stop omnipresence of malevolent attentions. Everyone wants to confirm their negative assumptions and pre-existing conditions on accepting you as a good person, from only a glance.

    Watching me…you will take…notice of what I GIVE with my gift.

    It would not be a stretch to categorize this as a version of live performance art. I am doing my art, which I do perform. One way that I’ve delivered concept and technique is via the mixtape. The 1 st Qoolstreams of Consciousness was the 1 st time I’ve ever done my thing (in my room at home) with eyes on my very private self.

    The streams-of-consciousness, you see, are me with my mind in motion + concurrent and recurring self-coaching thoughts and phrases + photos & images of my whole life, public and private. Because all of that information is constantly flowing through my mind as I play.

    The Qool Marv vibe on full display – you’ll see how I sound inside.

    I wonder what will be your take?

    Debut stream of my live mixtape recording. A look inside.

    Links to (just) the music from my livestream debut, where I basically made a mixtape - a process I've done alone and in private from day 1. Like when the kid gets quiet in their room, when I do that, with music, I'm definitely up to something.

    What that is, pretty much, is promoting the concept of self-expansion.

    How I play is an expression of my expansion mindset. It's freeing.

    Being who I am in the country that I live in, practicing - free - is a must. So far, this is the only way I know how to be completely free (other than running the 110 meter high hurdles with all my might...and I'm way too old for that kind of expression of freedom).

    You see my life and running thoughts flash throughout. I'll get that video smoother, y'all missed me busting some moves.

    Go for that good stuff friends and family and fill your self up.

    Thank you anyone and everyone who ever looked my way, and noticed. Makes me real, helps me feel whole.
