Review: Introducer the new secret Fixer, Gay Marvine, who specializing in creating dubs from your favourite anthems from back when you all wore eyeliner. Duran Duran's "Girls On Film" meets Siouxsie's "Cities In Dust". Tones on Tail's "There's Only One" meets its B Side "Now We Lustre" and Tom Tom Club's insanely catchy "Wordy Rapping Hood" is reduced to far less words.
Review: The fifth volume of the acclaimed cult "Secret Mixes & Fixes" series is the second instalment of Star Wars. Legendary Detroit radio DJ the Electrifyin' Mojo would sometimes have a segment of his show called Star Wars where he would pit 2 favourites against each other, playing their best music, and letting the listeners call in and decide the victor. In that vein, the first Star Wars SMF Vol 4 pitted Prince against Rick James, we're still not sure who won. Here we find Montreal disco freak Gino Soccio going up against the timeless Marvin Gaye, how will Gino survive? Well, Gino has his hottest sing along disco synth cut "Remember" edited for maximum effect, with a bonus instrumental version. But Marvin sneaks in with his ultimate spaced out escapist anthem, "Funky Space Reincarnation", with its original 90 BPM tempo brought up into the realm of modern house, hopefully fooling mediocre DJs into actually playing something with soul. Marvin rounds it out with a knockout, the Slit's 7" only post punk classic cover of "Heard It Through The Grape Vine".
