Superior at Kyo

Dj Superior at Kyo KL 15 September 2017

Superior is best known for his scratching and technical skills behind the turntables, his capability of playing a wide range of different types of music and blending them together so perfectly to a sound of what today is known as Urban Eclectic. Whether it’s a club night, festival, corporate event, wedding, birthday or teen party…Superior will give that extra to your event making it impossible to sit still.

Marvin Arthur Braafheid a.k.a. DJ Superior was born in Rotterdam in 1977. After spending part of his childhood in Surinam with his family he returned to Rotterdam by 1987, took up drumming lessons and was introduced to turntablism in his early teens.

Shortly after his kick off as a DJ, he ran into another young man that seemed to
share the same passion as he did, and they formed a DJ team The Coversquad, as DJ Deepcover (his partner) and DJ Undercover (himself). His first official gig in a club was at the age of 14. At that time he was the youngest DJ to have ever performed in a club. He began experimenting how to make music with the Amiga 500. The results of that experiment were his first bubbling based beat sample. It was at that time that the ‘Bubbling’ era began. Bubbling back then was known as today’s dancehall from Jamaica played up-tempo. It became extremely popular in the Netherlands and the Coversquad released 8 mixtapes that became a major hype throughout the country. The Coversquad grew to become the most popular and wanted DJ team, ruling the R&B scene of the Netherlands between 1993 and 2003. After going their separate ways in
2003, he changed his name from DJ Undercover to DJ Superior. From there new doors
opened up allowing him to grow into a multi-talented music artiste
