The project Marvin & Guy (M&G) was born in 2011 from the children of two different musical generations with a shared knowledge of how to make people dance to underground sounds. The duo’s foray into this journey began with an EP on the Japanese label Let’s Get Lost. Side A “Town” saw such positive response upon release that the label immediately released two more of their recordings. These were followed with a remix of Eddie C’s track “La Palette” for Endless Flight, commissioned by Toshiya Kawasaki of Mule Records after noticing the attention surrounding “Town.” After a handful of other EPs and singles, including for Jacques Renault’s label On The Prowl, Marvin & Guy started their own imprint in 2013. M&G Records launched with “UWIH,” a hypnotic edit of Black Sabbath, and “Makin’ Love,” a sleazy disco banger.
After touring extensively throughout Europe, Marvin & Guy returned to releasing on outside labels, first with Dance Abilities for Los Angeles’ Young Adults in 2015.
The release was acclaimed by the music community, with the blog Discobelle calling “slab of black gold” an impeccable “10 minute romp of uptempo, minimalistic psychedelia.” It’s true, their latest release was a departure from the disco sound the duo had become known for, attracting new fans from a broader “Indie Dance” community.
This included John Talabot, who asked Marvin & Guy to release on Hivern Discs. The EP Egoista will be out on June 8 2015. Today, these two k-fighters continue to grind as they expand their musical palette with the mission of bringing rhythmic body movement across the globe.
