Deadly Medley mix by JOHN MORALES

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpkxbiPzvZU

John Morales was born in the Bronx, New York. He is recognized worldwide as one of the early pioneers of Dance Mixing/Remixing,and producing beginning his career in 1975 as a local DJ in the Bronx.

John has been involved in the creation of hit records for the better part of 30 years. Known in the industry as an innovator and chance taker, he has always welcomed the challenge of working with new artists and has never been afraid to try new and different ideas.

The road to the top of the profession has been a long and steady climb for John. He honed his talents in an unlikely arena – as a disc jockey for the United States Air Force. "It was two hours a night," he recalls. "Your main job was to take their minds away from reality ...." After that grueling hitch, he returned to New York and a day job, mixing music at night in his homemade studio, pursuing his lifelong dream. John landed a gig at the Stardust Ballroom in the Bronx, spinning for "tops, $40-$50 a night, but you considered yourself lucky. Guys do it for nothing." In order to get some relief from his relentless work schedule (seven nights a week, 12-3pm., 7-1Opm., then 10pm-3am.), John began to mix his sounds on tape. He transferred some of his remixes to vinyl to be played by other DJs.

That Is funny!! John, in all seriousness, I have been playing M&M product, since day one. What was your first remix, your best remix, and your worst remix. What was more fun, spinning in clubs, or having the razor in your fingers?? How tight were you with PINKY & all the other early deejays from NYC? Finally, what was your favorite club? Thanks!!

John Morales of M & M!! Oh My God!! This is fabulous. John, you have given me countless hours of great music. Let me thank you for that. I am really glad you are here. I think we all are. This site already has the elite of the Disco deejays, so one more adds to our credibility. Pete, how do you talk these guys into coming here? You don't promise them a night with Pink Lady do you??

Will I have to go to Tampa and kick your ass!!?? How dare you insinuate that Pete is my Pimp!! You are just jealous because you never were a deejay, so you have ZERO chance with me!! LOL- Welcome John Morales, I am Pink Lady, the hottest deejay groupie you ever seen. I love deejays, but I never slept with you, right? LOL I would know, trust me. And you would never forget!! LOL - Seriously, I am glad you joined our little family! Welcome home!
