NYC DISCO, HOUSE EVENT: JOHN MORALES, Phil Toke, Gian Arpino, Alex Dimitriadis + Soul of Sydney DJ’s


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.

John has been involved in the creation of hit DISCO records for the better part of 30 years with over 500 songs on his own, and as part of John Morales & Sergio Munzibai (M & M Productions). 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.

Local supports include Gian Arpino, Phil Toke, Alex Dimitriades, Phil Hudson & Soul of Sydney DJ’s

Special limited $15 presale tickets are available via email from either soulofsydney@gmail.com or ourhouse_sydney@optusnet.com.au. Also check out www.soulofsydney.org/blockparty for more ticket info.

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.

FACEBOOK EVENT

“Now I don’t see nothing wrong, singing happy song
At the spirit deep inside, like a feeling getting strong
And there’s no need for opression, we come in peace
All we ask is let the music set you free

Check your attitude at the door
Smell the essence burning, sprinkle powder on the floor
The night is young and full of possibilities
We got our shelter now we, we found our sanctuary

(chorus)
We lift our hands at the Sanctuary
People come to dance at the Sanctuary
Love is alive at the Sanctuary
I feel alive at the Sanctuary

Lift up our hands in the Sanctuary
Everybody dance in the Sanctuary
So hear our voice in the Sanctuary
We rejoice in the Sanctuary

Can you imagine a place where all that matters is the music
DJ plays and the party people lose it
Singing, screaming, dancing around
I like the soulful sound of the underground

No pressure, no fear
Nobody’s in your business cause nobody really cares
Everyone’s special and you should feel the same
Welcome to the Sanctuary (I’m so glad you came)

Brothers and sisters, we are at the crossroads
Either we move forward, or get left behind
We gotta keep on keeping on
House music will never die
I don’t think you heard it
HOUSE MUSIC WILL NEVER DIE”
