Master Kev's victory in a mix-off contest in the 90s proved that the years of obsessing over the radio, studying underground dance and beat syncopation, and accumulating a killer collection of records had finally paid off. This win resulted in more live performances. And as the number of shows soared, so did Kev's talent. Soon after, hero Tony Humphries called to request that Kev join forces with his Yellorange Productions label. His answer? A triumphant "HELL YEAH." After spinning at the 2000 Winter Music Conference, and embarking on a European tour, his career was officially on the rise for real. Also in 2000, Master Kev helped form the Underground Collective – a collective of DJs, musicians, and singers created to draw exposure in the dance music industry to major labels. Last year, Kev hooked up with David "Vibes" Tobon and John Crockett to work on original productions, forming MKDV. They produced a track called "Twisted" which has earned a tremendous amount of buzz and has had huge early support from various renowned DJs. At this very special NiteLite, local house fans will get a chance to experience what has made a certain Kevin J. Finegan from Matawan, NJ the Master!
