Marvin


My name is David Peacock & my dj name is Marvin-40 I have been a music lover for as long as I can remember. In the early 90's (about 18 years old) I started going to raves & clubs up & down the country, it was about 1994 when I learned how to mix using a friends turntables I then began buying records.
In 1995 I bought a pair of Soundlab belt driven turntables & became more serious about djing. In 1999 I entered a techno mix in Muzik Magazines Bedroom Bedlam dj competion, too my surprise my mix won, I was featured in the magazine & asked to record a mix at Galaxy Radio, unfortunately I had difficulty using the Technics turntables & because it was a tape my mix wasn't broadcast. I then bought some Technics 1210 direct drive turntables & learned how to use them.
In 2001 a tech house mix I had sent to I.D.J. Magazine came 2nd in Readers Mixes, by now I was also playing in local bars & clubs.
In 2003 another mix this time techno came 5th in Readers mixes & again I was featured in the magazine.
In 2005 I won Raw Talent in I.D.J. Magazine this time with a Detroit techno mix.
In 2011 Underground Resistance advertised for new artists so I recorded various mixes with Detroit music (house, techno, & electro) & sent them to UR my Red Planet records mix was highlighted by the Red Planet Of Detroit & my Interstellar Fugitives mix was added to a Radio UR playlist. I have twice featured on the Bass Agenda Radio show & have recently recorded an exclusive Detroit techno mix for Radio UR.
These days I can dj with both vinyl & digital (CDJ's) & can use 3 turntables I play most genres of music. The 40 in my name is from the UR release Analog Assassin because instead of using my picture on mixes & profiles I use the Analog Assassin picture staying true to the UR way of doing things & the Analog Assassin catalogue no is 40.
