When George Met John: An Interview Special with John Morales

This article was originally published at nsrlive.co.uk on 17th November 2014.

Last Friday evening myself and Ricky had the immense pleasure of welcoming DJ legend John Morales into the studio for a chat about his life and his work.

John Morales is a pioneer in the mixing scene, beginning his career with a mix of Inner Life’s ‘Caught Up (In A One Night Love Affair)’, to his most recent compilation ‘Club Motown‘. He has influenced countless DJs, and remains as in-demand as ever in both the studio in the club. This weekend we had the privilege of watching him at work at the fabulous Hoochie Coochie on both Friday and Saturday night; your Heads of Music and Station Manager managed to dance away the full three hour set away.

John’s latest CD is entitled ‘Club Motown‘, and is a compilation of great Motown funk tracks featuring rarities, M&M mixes from back-in-the-day, and five brand new remixes of Teena Marie, Val Young, Tata Vega, Thelma Houston, and Diana Ross. For more information on John, visit his website: www.johnmoralesmix.com

We are so pleased to have had the opportunity to speak with John for an entire hour, and you can listen to it in it’s entirety below!
