He is best known for his excellent singing voice and groovy dance moves in his old band JLS, but Marvin Humes is keen to try his hand at spinning records as a DJ.
The 28-year-old is enjoying his new position as a Capital FM presenter, with a show on Friday nights between 8pm and 12am. Speaking exclusively to EntertainmentWise, Marvin assured us that he is loving his new job and his accompanying jet-set lifestyle.
The father-of-one explained:”I’m loving being a DJ. I’ve always done it, I’ve done it before JLS, it’s only now that I’m really getting my teeth into it.
“I’ve got a lot of dates in Europe over the summer and then Ibiza over the summer and there’s loads of different places,” the boyband hottie continued. “Yeah, I love it! It’s great, I really really enjoy it.”
He also revealed plans to branch out into music production, saying: “That’s my idea, maybe in a year to produce dance music and hopefully release something. That would be amazing!”
Marvin and his wife Rochelle became parents to baby girl Alaia-Mai in May, so what does the new mummy think of him DJing and partying in Ibiza?
“She’ll come with me sometime. I’m only there for one night. I did one last week and I didn’t sleep, I just got back on the plane and flew back to work.”
The Club Is Alive singer also opened up about his feelings toward JLS’s split. The band were together for 7 years, but plan to go there separate ways after their last arena tour later this year.
Marvin said: “You have to pick yourself up and keep going. I think for us, it’s a celebration of what JLS was. We had six or seven incredible years as a band, and it’s a time now that we are all individually working on our next steps.”
“With me, working at Capital is perfect, I’ve always wanted to be a DJ,” Mr Humes continued, “I DJed before the band, so it’s great that I can now do that on the air.”
