Mr V is also known as Victor Font, and experiencing his magical DJ sets, original productions or remixes is like taking a trip back in time to dance music’s golden age. It is with this classic sense of spirit and enthusiasm that New York City’s Mr. V targets today’s dance music world as a throwback to a better time. Growing up in the 1980s the open-minded Mr V was heavily influenced by house, hip-hop, Latin, garage and disco classics, rhythm & blues and jazz. Mr V was enticed by the role a DJ commanded over a crowd and was taken by the talents of his friend Lord G., who had a weekly Thursday night party in New York City. Despite wanting to be a professional DJ, it wasn’t until he met the legendary Louie Vega that he found his calling.
Louie saw the drive and potential in Mr V and hired the young Nuyorican DJ/producer as his assistant at the world famous Masters At Work label, and in this position he was given a rare insight into the global dance scene. Before long he was taking to the decks alongside his mentor and is now one of the top DJs in his field. In addition to his busy DJ schedule and ever finer production credits Vega Records, King Street Sounds, Flamingo Records, Defected Records, Play It Down, Strictly Rhythm and many more, Mr V launched his own label Sole Channel Music as a way to release music with complete control and artistic freedom.
