About this item

Described wholly accurately by Boiler Room as "one of the best producers and arrangers of disco music to have ever done it", Bronx native John Morales has more than three decades of hits and over 800 remixes to his credit. This 4th volume of M&M Mixes on BBE is without doubt the most ambitious yet, containing gems from Barry White, Diana Ross, Level 42, Teddy Pendergrass and Eddie Kendricks among others, all woven together with that special, intricate M&M magic. Gaining unprecedented access to original multitrack recordings from the vaults of Sony and Universal Records, John has once again upped the ante, going where no DJ has gone before. Accept no imitations, nobody does remixes quite like John Morales.
Volume 4, vinyl edition #2 kicks off in much the same manner as its partner, powering out the blocks with a belting rework of Barry "Walrus Of Love" White. Swirling, psychedelic and powered by stomping piano chords and drums, this Morales mix is gonna get your dance floor hot. Morales moves into boogie territories next with a high voltage version of Teena Marie's "Lover Girl", stretching out the arrangement to squeeze the maximum juice out of each individual element. The second slab o' wax serves us an instant classic as big Jon gets delightfully dubby with jazzy, funky, disco delight "Love Is The Message" by MFSB (currently threatening to upset the desk with its irresistible groove) before a loopy, lovely chop shop cut of Mannix' b-boy blinder "Standing Right Here" plays us out. Ace!
