The king of New York House music, David Morales, deserves his place among the legends of the House scene. His remixing is legendary. U2, Mariah Carey and Jamiroquai are all prime examples of just what this man and his mixing desk can do.
Despite being as famous for his DJing as his remixing, Morales does not even consider himself to be a DJ :
When I say I don't consider myself a DJ, I don't mean I'm no longer playing out. I play records because I love to and I want to share my love of music with others. I don't do the DJing for money because the DJing is not what pays my bills. The remixing and producing does that. I do the DJing because I have something to offer. I could be forty years of age and still have it in me.
David's roots are firmly in New York. Indeed he was one of the first DJs in New York to play House music. He feels that it was around 1985 that the House boom started. His first two House records were from Chicago. One was 'JM Silk' and the other was the seminal classic 'Like This' by Chip.E.
Despite being a DJ for so long, Morales still has the ability and the passion to surprise himself and his audience :
I like to create a trip for people, a voyage. I never
know what I'm doing, so it's like a voyage for me too. I'll start here and end up there
