When Restaurant Marvin opened in Fall '07 surrounded by a lot of anticipation, Jamil got in on the ground floor.

But it was a Monday.

I can't pinpoint when it happened, but maybe that's because it was so subtle. A slow Monday night gradually morphed into the most soulful, funky and eclectic party in town. There was no promotion, no advertising and no fanfare. Even before the City Paper article, The Main Ingredient was a phenomenon born of word of mouth.

Where else in the city can you party HARD to The Police, Chubb Rock, Glenn Underground, Rare Essence and J*DaVeY all in the same set?

It's a DJ's dream come true to be able to rock a dancefloor consistently with records you believe in. It's fitting that the diligence of a DC veteran like Jamil has been rewarded with a vibrant weekly party full of like-minded souls. Let's not take it for granted.

The Soul Controllers would like to thank Marvin's dedicated party-goers for supporting DJ Jahsonic and the staff and ownership of Marvin for providing a space for The Main Ingredient to flourish. If you know someone who wasn't there on this INSANELY fun night, please pass on the goods.
