I have come to know of Marvin from Twitter all thanks to “Follow a House Head Thursday”. Didn’t really know much about him besides that he also shares the same passion as I do for House Music. As time went on, i bumped into him at The Soul Revival event and i sense i’ll be seeing more of him at such events. I guess the Deep part of his name defines the kind of music he enjoys and plays.
Here a little information about him:
Marvin Makhoba is not only a HOUSE hold name in Osizweni (a township in Newcastle), but has come to make his mark all over the club scene in KZN. The irony of Deep Marvin’s childhood is that he did less partying when young. I presume he did not realize that he would one day be the reason of several parties in KZN. He draws his inspiration from his friends and from the passion he has for the music. The beginning of the new millennium aroused Deep Marvin’s curiosity of becoming a dj but the move was held back until 2007 when he took the craft seriously. Deep Marvin didn’t hesitate to mention the Deeper Shades of House renowned dj/producer Lars Behrenroth as someone he would love to share the stage with.
In 2012 Deep Marvin started a podcast Pleasures of Intimacy where he shares some of the music he likes and also includes mixtapes from djs all over the globe. Not only is it a deep house podcast but it serves as a foundation of a deep movement he wishes to see succeed one day. With only a year the podcast has hosted some of the great names that includes Jesus Gonsev, Jazzman, Dj Russell, Shelli Diego. His passion for the music has seen him share the decks with some of the legends in the deep scene, the likes of Vinny Da Vinci, Tim White, QB Smith, Dubbyman… just to name a few. With the way things are going this is the beginning of great things for him as well as from him.
Deep Marvin has been fortunate enough to be made one of the resident deejays for the Strictly Deep Sessions at Uber Zulu (Florida Road). This initiative aims to accommodate the mature crowd who enjoy listening to more chilled music with a good beat and some jazzy elements in it….
