Very sad news he passed away, I met him in Madrid (Spain) in 2005, he came into the record shop where I was working and gave me a hand-shake & explained me who was & why he was there, came to the city to see a Louie Vega's & his band gig the night before, he was asking for some music & while he & me were talking, the rest of the staff of the shop were at the back , as we were speaking in english someone of them asked me what did he want and I said...

''do you know who is?? Is Mark Kamins''
''who's that??''
''the producer of Everybody, from Madonna''
As I finish to say that his eyes were wide open and I said...
''you know what? you don't know how kind he was asking for music...

God bless you Mark!

Dee Danie Dee is not an alias for Mark Kamins. He was a living person and is on the cover of the Ecstasy Energy 12". It is an insult to refer to the name as an alias for Mark Kamins. If you have any questions I am listed as the photographer on the back cover of the record.
