Urvinson

DJ Urvinson

Street jazz dancer
In 1974, DJ Urvinson was born in Haarlem, in the Netherlands. “My introduction to nightlife was jazz dance,” says DJ Urvinson. “I expressed myself by putting all my energy and love for music into dancing. When I was 15 at the basketball court in Haarlem, I met Vincent Verburg. We showed each other some street dance moves. We hooked up and started to practice and to network. Before we knew it, we were performing in clubs and jazz festivals as street jazz dancers. Our style was a combination of hip hop, breakdance, tricks, fast jazz footwork, and acrobatics. A few years later, I met other jazz dancers like Gary and Seymore Nurse, Norville, Levi, John, Adolf, Jelly Germain (a French tap dancer), Johan, Jerry, and of course, my brother, DJ Carlito, all specialists in jazz dance.” In 1990, DJ Urvinson spent time at the Jazzbopparties in Paradiso in Amsterdam and at the Hardbopparties at Fellini’s, an underground club in Utrecht. “That time was very important in my life as a dancer,” says DJ Urvinson. “I spent Sunday nights club hopping from Havanna’s The Message to the Roxy and the Richter in Amsterdam, which were the hottest places to be for dancers from all over the world. At that time my brother Carlos was already DJing. My focus was strictly dance and dance performance.”
Auditions
In 1999, DJ Urvinson shifted his focus to drama, acting, theatre, and DJing. He auditioned and did theater projects for schools with the theater group, Stout. Meanwhile, he bought two turntables and started to collect hip hop, R&B, soul, rare grooves, funk, disco, jazz, and deep house. “I surprised my brother, DJ Carlito, when I wanted to DJ. In the beginning, it was hard to combine all music styles the way DJ Carlito does, but he inspired me and I learned.”
Wicked jazzsounds
In 2002, DJ Urvinson joined forces with Phil Horneman and Manne van der Zee and started a weekly Sunday club evening called Wicked Jazz Sounds, which is now held regularly at Sugar Factory. “Phil and I were the only two resident DJs working with musicians like Jeff Hollie and Vibemaster R.Skills,” says DJ Urvinson. “Wicked Jazz Sounds became really big and is still a very successful concept and club night in the Dutch jazz and dance scene. Now we have a big family with a lot of musicians and DJs. I am a resident DJ and I am very proud to see Wicked Jazz Sounds grow to what it has become today.”
Wicked Jazz Sounds has released a series of successful CDs. DJ Urvinson is featured on the most recent release, Wicked Jazz Sounds 6 with Phil Horneman. For CD1 Urvinson has cherry picked a broad selection of the finest tracks around. Often hiphop orientated but there are many more flavours in his crates! Down tempo tracks like “Attraction” from Brothers In Harmony -a track he produced with his brother Carlito-
(Puck Syson, & Marly Nelstein Back4Soul), German artist Joy Denalane are seamlessly mixed into the joyful jazz cover “You Gotta Have Freedom” from Boogaloo. After that Urvinson goes all out with the freaky, almost punk like jazz from Soil & "Pimp" Sessions.

Musicstyle he plays: Jazz from Acid-Jazz, Nu-Jazz, Punk Jazz, BeBop, Fusion, Latin, contempio Boogaloo, drum & Bass SOUL, FUNK, HIP HOP, LOUNGE, BREAKBEATS, R&B, HOUSE, FROM DEEPHOUSE TO TECHHOUSE
