What can we say about John Morales???
Firstly, there are many bio's floating about the worldwide web of John's history however we have been given a few quotes from well established artists & producers to give you the real deal;
'“The original process of 're-mixing records' was intended to provide an alternative listening experience which had been optimized for people who went out to dance at Discos. John was one of the early pioneers who loved music, understood his craft and HAD RESPECT FOR THE CREATIVE WORK from which his mixes were derived”
“John Morales, what can I say, he is the beginning of JOCELYN BROWN!! We started out with a demo of CAUGHT UP IN A ONE NIGHT AFFAIR and there it began! He new how to record and work the sound of my voice like no other engineer has, I never had to worry about how I sounded or how a note came out for he and I was always one on catching the bad notes (hahahahaha) or wrong phrasings!! John was the reason I stayed in studio with INNER LIFE, he made each day that we were together a wonderful and exciting adventure! Being a singer is one thing but being an artist is another! He made me see the difference and how to apply the talent that I had to the knowledge he had to our music! I am so happy to have had this chance in my life with him and how it all still is so important in the recording business after 30 years!! People never forget the songs we have done together and the feeling that went with the songs! John and I both were going through alot and the music healed a lot of out hurts and pains. So what do I say about John Morales - well he is Uncle John to my Daughter Kayaswonna and also to her children, my sister knows him as a brother and I will always know him as apart of my family and most of all the one who believed in me and my voice! Luv ya!”
“M+M stands for Morales Magic,” say Tom Moulton, the man who single-handedly created the remix as an art form in between inviting the twelve-inch single and producing some of the most groundbreaking records that defined the disco era. “John always adds that sparkle in a mix that seems to bring out the energy and excitement when he works on something. When Morales does his mix he leaves a giant stamp on it. You can’t top that.”
Louie Vega (Grammy Award Winner, Vega Records / MAW)
"John Morales is a pioneer of our music and has been one of the reasons why I am a producer. He has inspired me since the 80s and by looking at this track listing I have to say he is a genius at WORK!!"
Secondly, the M&M Mixes Vol II, which is released on BBE records on 29th March will also coincide with a worldwide tour and we are happy to say 'that East Village will be the first party to kick off, John's tour'. We are very excited about this party, as John has personally invited some of the UK's leading producers/djs to come and join him at East Village with worldwide acclaimed Phil Asher from Restless Soul, Colouful Radio presenter Fitzroy Da Buzz Boy, Brighton's super PR guru Sarah Foote (Favouritizm) and the infamous New York dj/producer Victor Simonelli.........
Lastly, do expect something extra special with John's extensive contact black book, you'll never know who will turn up???? You just got to get yourself down to East Village!!!!
See You On The Dance Floor.
