“The original process of ‘re-mixing records’ was intended to provide an alternative listening experience which had been optimized for people who went out to dance at Discos. John was one of the early pioneers who loved music, understood his craft and HAD RESPECT FOR THE CREATIVE WORK from which his mixes were derived”
-Patrick Adams – Super Producer. Writer of more than 30 Gold and Platinum records and back-to-back winner of ASCAP Songwriter of the year award – 1996 -1997.
This compilation is John Morales’ third for BBE. Few can match his contributions to the world of Dance Music, be it soul, funk, disco, to today’s house music. John Morales is considered one of the true legends of the mix. And his work some thirty years later continues to be cutting edge and inspiring. His epic mix of Universal Robot Bands boogie anthem “Barely Breakin Even” is the source from which BBE Records got its name. He formed the M+M Mix with his late partner Sergio Munzibai in 1982 til 1990 whose output of over 650 mixes will be unmatched today, John Continues The M+M Legacy.
This superb triple CD presents some of John’s finest works, and takes the M+M Mix legacy to yet a higher level. CD1 & 2 feature some of the greatest tracks of all time from the start of CD 1 and Barry White’s “Never, Never Gonna Give You Up”, to the classic rework of Marvin Gaye’s “I Want You” which closes out CD2, there are no sleepers here. CD3 also features some of the best from the vaults of the Salsoul and West End labels, anthems like Loleatta Holloway’s “Hit And Run” to legendary Paradise Garage favorite Loose Joints “Is It All Over My Face?”. This is the legacy of the M+M mixes.
