An early pioneer of the disco mix, John Morales was involved in some of the genre’s most important records.


John Morales was born in the Bronx, New York. He is recognized worldwide as one of the early pioneers of the disco mix. Having begun his career in 1975 as a local DJ in the Bronx, he also spun records for the US Armed Forces before he settled into the groove of his true calling. Realising he wanted some of the three or four minute-long records to last longer, he started splicing tape with his TEAC and in doing so, arguably invented the ‘extended edit’. After sending some of his mixes to acetate for other DJs, he was soon in demand on an official capacity and ended up being involved in the mix of some of disco’s most important records – big and small.

John returns to Sydney after absolutely tearing the roof off our party in April 2012 and playing spots all over the world on the back of his killer new release.

M + M Mixes Vol III : NYC Underground Disco Anthems & Unreleased Edits out on BBE RECORDS

John has been involved in the creation of hit DISCO records for the better part of 30 years with over 1000 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.


‘New York had Larry Levan, Chicago had Ron Hardy, Sydney had Stephen Allkins..’

We are excited to be also be hosting a very rare afternoon set from Sydney’s own home legendary DJ & Producer Mr Stephen Allkins.

Being one of the true pioneers of dance music in Sydney & playing the the very first disco clubs & warehouse parties from 1978, it is safe to say that Stephen Allkins aka [love] tattoo could rightly claim the trademark of “Mr.Disco”, his extensive record collection & his infamous sets over the years and legacy is also a testament to that.

He first started DJing in the late 70’s and has inspired a whole generation of DJ’s through his infamous sets at warehouse parties, raves and clubs over the years and some absolutely blissful production as [Love-Tattoo]

Expect a very special journey through the disco, funk & early house sounds that matter from the original DJ’s DJ who has seen it and done it all.

Who will also be playing along our own Soul of Sydney DJ’s, Phil Toke, Shan Frenzie (Groove Therapy Radio – 2ser), Michael Zac & Eadie Ramia.

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.

Please Note: Our last 4 parties have completely sold out so be sure to lock in a spot on the dancefloor early for this special show.

West London born and raised but currently residing on the East Side of the city, Stevie J aka Funkineven is no stranger to night life and sound system culture.

Influenced by the music of Prince, Leaders Of The New School, The Neptunes, Larry Heard, Kraftwerk, George Clinton and Masters At Work to name but a few, it’s clear to see why Funkineven’s music displays such a colourful and diverse palette of sounds, styles and tempi.

About Sloppy Seconds


Sloppy Seconds is;

A re-edit label (Sloppy Seconds – get it?).  You can find me digitally on Juno for now.  I do have plans to press up vinyl sometime in the near future.  The material that I plan on using for the vinyl releases will be titles exclusive to the wax catalogue (I have a secret stash saved specifically for this purpose).  I’ll let you all know when that happens.

A music resource website. I’ve been collecting vinyl since the early/mid 80’s and have amassed quite an amount of relatively obscure stuff and started the blog as a way to promote lesser known artists and their releases.  Because of the controversy surrounding mp3s I had originally intended to only post titles that are out of print, but I also realized that there are tons of new releases that are equally as amazing that weren’t being promoted very well.  The music selection there varies greatly and includes just about anything that moves me and/or  makes me laugh.  Here’s the addy.  Make yourselves at home.  Beer is in the fridge.

(For the record, I have received numerous emails stating that purchases of posted material were made due to promotion of said titles from the blog.)

And a DJ.  I’ve been DJing for quite some time now.  Most of you have never heard of me, which might have something to do with the severe lack of self promotion over the years – I never liked that part of the job, but I’ve come to the conclusion that the self promotion game needed to be stepped up if I wanted to continue to do this.
