NYC house legend David Morales returns with his ‘The Face’ moniker for a cover of the Debbie Jacobs classic ‘Don’t You Want My Love’ on Def Mix.
Not many producers can boast to have remixed the likes of Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, U2, Whitney Houston and more. David Morales has been pinnacle in the growth of house music over the last three decades, anthems like ‘Needin’ You’, ‘How Would You Feel’ and ‘In De Ghetto’ have all became forever classics in many Dj boxes and at 55 Morales shows no sign of slowing down.
This new release started off life as an edit Morales has been caning at recent Glitterbox parties and down to sheer crowd appreciation the Grammy award-winner has recreated the track from scratch drafting the vocals of Def Mix family member Nicki Richards.
The ‘Disco Mix’ is classic disco vibe with emphatic claps, rolling, funky bass lines and ascending synth melodies. Richards vocals are bright and diva-like but the real magic comes from the triumphant brass sections that light up the sound. This is sparkling, disco-house at it’s finest.
The ‘Glitterbox Mix’ takes on a almost Giorgio Moroder vibe with fiery, sexual synth sounds that fall away to classic Morales piano lines that drive a more house tempo backed by solid 4/4 drum sequences. There’s still plenty of disco nuances kept in as to be expected, after all Glitterbox is in the title.
This release will see the light of day from the 11th Aug 2017 via Def Mix Music.
