Pronounced Gay Marveen, this anonymous producer descends from Detroit and describes himself as a creepy, campy, shadowy hedonist.
Over the last couple of years I have been collecting his edits which were first released under 'Secret mixes &; Fixes' and more recently under Gay Marvin. The former includes some great re-edits of Tom Tom Club, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Duran Duran & The Slits.
The later taking more of a camp disco route which includes re-edits of Grace Jones, Sylvester, Shalamar and Divine.
The re-edits are only released on limited vinyl runs, so many an hour has been spent on discogs getting them in from all over the shop!
Thanks to the joys of a USB turntable, I have ripped two tracks by Tom Tom Club and Shamalar for your listening pleasure, enjoy...
