Marvin Gaye – I Want You (John Morales Breakdown Mix)

In 2008 I had the pleasure to Mix one of my all time favourite Marvin Gaye Tracks I Want You. There were Four Mixes in The Package 2 of which are in this set ,this was a labour of Love for me having mixed so many of Marvin tracks I always felt a connection to him and his music, and hope wherever he is, he’s feeling my work.. I played everything myself excepts for a few bits from the original master. There is no greater pleasure in life than being able to do what you are passionate about and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to work on some of the greatest music of all time, I am truly blessed and hope you enjoy my work..

Thanks John

Soul Of Sydney and Our House Sydney are blessed to present one of the legends (not used lightly) of New York Disco and an early pioneer of dance music production, remixing and DJ’ing – John Morales.

Known in the industry as an innovator and chance taker, John has always welcomed the challenge of working with new artists and can lay claim to being one of the originators of the extended mix, remix and re-edit concept.

Having worked, remixed or edited everyone from Marvin Gaye, Inner Life, Jocelyn Brown, Fantastic Aleems, Teddy Pendergrass, Harold Melvin, Evelyn Thomas, Fantastic Aleems, Brass Construction, War, Candi Staton, Loletta Holloway, First Choice, Salsoul Orchestra & Double Exposure just to name a few, expect John to give a FUNK & DISCO lesson covering 30+ years of the sound that shaped music as we know it today.

JOHN MORALES

In 1975 while working as a DJ in local Bronx club, John Morales realised that he wanted to lengthen the duration of some of his records. Back then the duration of most records was 3 to 4 minutes, so by using his TEAC 71/2 and a box of razor blades, John started splicing tape for endless hours and became one the first DJ’s to create the ‘extended mix’ (or ‘remix’ in it’s original form). In doing so, he realised that he could achieve a similar outcome by cutting, slicing and taping parts from different recordings. This formed the basis for his acclaimed (deadly) medleys. John says “I can still see the 100′s of edits zoom by every-time I play the tape”. John Morales started to release some of his reel to reel edits, medleys and remixes to Acetate via the Sunshine Sound (a NYC studio where DJ’s could bring their reel to reel tapes and have acetate copies cut one at a time), so that he could play these tracks at clubs. Greg Carmichael gave him his first mixing job after hearing some of his Sunshine Acetate mixes and these first two official mixes made him famous: ‘Dance and Shake Your Tambourine’ by ‘The Universal Robot Band’ and the classic ‘I’m Caught Up” by Inner Life. However some of his early mixes and edits, even those officially released, were and remain uncredited and so might not appear in his discography! John has worked for numerous acts and has been involved in the creation of over 500 songs – both on his own and as part of John Morales & Sergio Munzibai (M & M Productions). John Morales can lay claim to being one of the most important figures in the creation of the extended mix, remix and re-edit concept.

  5. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but
    I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I’d
    certainly appreciate it.

  6. Undeniably imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the net the easiest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other people think about worries that they just do not know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out the entire thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
