    His Biog:

    MR.V

    Versatile and determined, Victor Font (aka MrV) is set to become a major force in the music industry. With a life-long interest in music, Mr V emerges from New York City's club scene as a well-respected DJ and budding producer/remixer. Born in Manhattan's Lower East Side in 1974, the Nuyorican discovered a great love of music at a very young age. Victor was introduced to the club scene by his aunt, who was a bouncer at the now legendary nightclub, The World-, and by the age of fourteen, Victor started DJ’ing with help from neighborhood friends. After graduating from High School, Victor was so consumed with DJ’ing he spent most of his nights practicing or visiting the clubs, listening and watching from other DJs.

    Determined to have his own audience, Victor spun at many house parties as he could, until he finally got his first official club gig as Mr. V at Timmy Richardson’s 2i’s party in New York City.

    Widely influenced and open-minded, Victor sites House, Hip-Hop, Latin, Garage & Disco Classics, Rhythm and Blues and Jazz as his main musical influences. Victor has displayed his turntable talents at many popular nightclubs and Party’s in New York and across the globe, including: Bang The Party (NYC) Cielo Club (NYC)

    Underground Collective (NYC),

    Centro Fly (NYC), Southport Weekender (London, UK.)

    Club Andalu in Washington D.C.,

    Audio Deluxe in (Edinburgh, Scotland)

    Club Core (Tokyo, Japan), Sonic Arch (Santo Domingo)

    Club Shelter (NYC), Roots (At Cielo Club),

    Layers (Toronto, Canada), Louie Vega’s Dance Ritual (NYC),

    Sullivan Room (NYC),

    Layers at Bauhaus Nightclub (Toronto, Canada), GateCrasher The Summer Sound System (UK)

    SoulEyes - Tokyo, Devotion- The End Up (SanFrancisco)

    to name a few…

    Gaining many contacts through the years, Victor eventually landed a position at the Masters At Work record label (MAW Records), as an assistant to "Little Louie" Vega &

    "Ralphie Boy" Muniz. The position would bring him around world and give him a first-hand glimpse at the booming global dance scene. Adding to his repertoire, Victor has recently evolved in to music production. His debut remix with Alix Alvarez, "The Anthem"' was released on Underground Collective Recordings in 2002, with much success, Victor has many more projects in store.

    With years of experience, Victor remains an integral part of the music and club scene, as a gifted DJ and aspiring producer with new ideas and a fresh sound. Dancing to the beat of his own drum, he hopes to become a force in the dance music industry and blaze a trail for other DJs to follow in the future.
