Marvin & Guy aka “the cowboys from paradise” is a project created back in 2011 by the Italian based DJs and producers Alessandro Parlatore and Marcello Giordani. Two different musical generations with a shared knowledge of how to make people dance are recognizable for their disco based sound influenced by legendary DJs such as Ron Hardy, Larry Levan and Tee Scott.
Half a decade ago the Italian duo hit the scene with the “Let’s Get Lost Vol. 14” two-tracker on Mule Musiq and both tracks, especially the hypnotic version of Minako Yoshida’s “Town,” hit hard. In 2013 they took things in house and commenced a mission to create their own super exclusive 12 inch label.
2015 was a breakthrough year for Marvin & Guy as they released their “Dance Abilities” EP on the L.A. based Young Adults label and the famous “Egoista” EP on Hivern Discs. The italian duo kept expanding their palette with three tracks that push the boundaries between disco and techno culture creating a recognizable “groovy techno” sound. The “Egoista” track from the same name EP became an inevitable track in John Talabot’s sets for quite a long time; however, it was “Canción (Para Tí)” from the same EP that made Marvin & Guy shine on the underground electronic music scene and gain support from DJs like Pachanga Boys, Ivan Smagghe, Roman Flügel, DJ Tennis and Jennifer Cardini.
In March 2016 the guys have taken it to the next level with the ”Music for Race EP” on Correspondant. The three tracks: “Targa”, “Countach” and “Stratos” are inspired by long countryside drives, a yearning to get away and a need to connect with their music in a physical way, as provided by the recorded hand clapping refrain running throughout the tracks.
