Listen Now: David Morales LIVE @ Red Zone NY part 1 & 2 (1990)

David-Morales
Throwback Thursday! I have been listening to this mix originally posted on InTheMix.au and I have listened to it at least every day this past week. I grew up with my mother listening to his music which completely clashed with the honkey tonk that my father played in his truck. Can not get enough.

Enjoy!

David Morales Live @ Red Zone NY part 2 (1990)

Great write up from Jim Poe:

This mix, from late in the club’s run, is eclectic, energetic, bright and relentlessly melodic. Part 1 is more accessible; no doubt it’s from early in the evening and shows Morales as a quintessential New York DJ pleasing his crowd with hip-house, reggae and Suzanne Vega’s Tom’s Diner. Part 2 has a late-night feel and shows the maestro’s appetite for the raw, soulful sounds of true-school house, including 808 State’s Pacific and Underground Solution’s Luv Dancin’. (The latter, produced by Roger Sanchez, samples a 1979 Loose Joints record featured in Larry Levan’s mix and thus charts the evolution of the New York underground sound.)
