On the radio, in the record stores and on the dancefloor of the 1980s, John Morales was omnipresent. Working predominately with studio partner Sergio Munzibai they helped define the disco era and influenced future generations of DJs, producers and artists. M&M productions have over 650 mixes to their name (including Jocelyn Brown, The Temptations, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Hall & Oats, Candi Staton and Billy Ocean), surely making them one of the most prolific remix partnerships of all time. Still going strong today as a DJ and curator of compilations, we’re delighted to present some of John’s favourite records: “five tracks I don’t leave home without, the versions I play out are a bit tweaked up from the original – sped up, edited and just made to be for me so come and hear them in person!”
Terry Wells – I’m Giving All My Love
#1 sure to fill the floor.
Colors – Am I Gonna Be The One
Another favorite of mine at the moment , great groove and vibe.
Rose Royce – Do You Dance?
Another killer groove. I love tracks like this – just can’t duplicate the vibes.
Tata Vega – Get It Up For Love
Another sure-fire floor banger. Don’t leave home without it.
Teddy Pendergrass – If You Know Like I know
Every DJ has a Teddy track in their arsenal. This is mine
