Management & Booking
In recent years, Jersey City, N.J. has become a growing epicenter for food, art and nightlife. As good as these are, it’s the people who make the city a mecca of culture. And Kevlove is one of them.
Influenced by impromptu jam sessions and performances with family, Kevlove, born Kevin Madrinan, sparked his musical career at his elementary school graduation back in the 90s. He also exposed himself to a variety of genres – from funk and disco to 80s and 90s pop-rock throwbacks – and quickly started mixing them with the pulsating beats of hip-hop, house and club music. Kevlove became a disciple of party-rocking stylings of
DJ AM, Jazzy Jeff, and The Rub DJs and noted their all-inclusive and turntable technical approach to music.
Kevlove eventually caught the attention of local vets in the industry and was inducted to The Elite Camp – a brigade of masterful DJs, producers, designers, and tastemakers in New York City and New Jersey. Under their wings, he refined his craft and earned top billing in with crew’s long-running no pretense dance party, More Than Enough, at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC’s Greenwich Village. He’s also spun at Miss Lily’s, Ace Hotel, The DL, Hotel Chantelle and Soho House in Manhattan; Red Rooster in Harlem; Tender Trap and Friends & Lovers in Brooklyn; Kung Fu Necktie and Morgan’s Pier in Philadelphia; and Porta Jersey City, Miss Wong’s at Talde and Lulu’s in New Jersey. He has shared the stage with Nicole Albino (Nina Sky), Dirty South Joe (Mad Decent), DJ Wonder (Sway in the Morning on Shade 45 Sirius XM) and Nick Catchdubs (Fool’s Gold). Kevlove has also made appearances on Sway in the Morning on Shade 45 and WHCR 90.3FM’s Impulse Travels as well as dropped two mixtapes – Some Feelings
and Best of 2015.
"What is most important to me in DJing or any project I undertake is to genuinely have the love for it. This foundation is imperative because everything else after falls into place - people begin to see your vision, you start connecting and building relationships, and opportunity begins to present itself." – Kevlove
