About ★ JOHN MORALES /

We take remixes for granted these days, but in the ’70s, a handful of DJs and engineers were literally putting the form together with their own hands. The Bronx-born DJ John Morales was one of these early splicers, making extended edits and medleys at a time when he found most tracks too short to work well in his sets. Cutting his teeth at Bob Blank’s Blank Tapes studio and gaining fans like disco über-producer Patrick Adams, Morales embedded himself in New York’s music world, and as the ’70s rolled into the ’80s, Morales grew ever more in-demand for his eminently club-ready tweaks of everyone from Hall & Oates to The Rolling Stones. Along with his partner Sergio Munzibai, he established one of the top remix brands of the era: the M&M mix. Morales spent some time out of the game over the last few decades, but in 2009, BBE released the first of three compilations of M&M mixes, which turned the spotlight back on his considerable contribution to dance music.

BLOG: GOSPEL DISCO VINYL MIX: COLLECTED RHYTHMS 4 mixed by GIAN ARPINO


RARE GOSPEL DISCO VINYL MIX by GIANO ARPINO

Many many years ago in Sydney, we bumped into a local DJ, CRATE DIGGER & all-around good bloke GIAN ARPINO warming things up for DAM FUNK tour. On that night he dropped some of the finest 1980s-inspired boogie funk we had heard at the time.

Has been sending us dope mixes, podcasts & wine recommendations for the best part of 15 years now since we hand this FUNK blog. We connected then & he introduced & educated us to so much of the music that has formed the foundation of pretty much everything we do today. This latest mix is a special one for us being massive fans of GOSPEL, it is an Easter mix showcasing some of the rare GOSPEL DISCO goodness in his record collection under his new project COLLECTED RHYTHMS.

Check him out on socials for more info on any releases, podcasts & gigs around town & wine recommendations.
