Marvin Prather is Eternal Student — a veteran Detroit DJ, party promoter, a fixture from the early days of the scene and one of the true musical heroes in a city that never seems to stop surprising.

Marvin grew up in the days of the Music Institute and after school sessions with Radio Shack mixers and whatever records everyone could buy. And then, after decades in the scene and forty years of musical study, he blew us away with “Hear Me Though,” his vinyl debut on Moods & Grooves. It opened a new chapter in a career that it’s correct to say began both in his teens, when he began DJing, and in his early 50s, when he made his first tracks.

If you need inspiration, Marvin’s story will provide it — the profile in this issue is one of our favorites we’ve published this year. And if you need an inspiring deep house set right now, we have you covered too. Eternal Student’s cover mix for our latest issue is “a mix of some tunes I’ve been digging lately,” he says, “a couple of throwback and ends with an unreleased Eternal Student track.”
