Image: 1578892 “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.
No attempt has ever been made to summarise the pinnacle of John’s work. This third release on
BBE continues that history lesson that John has forged in dance music. He formed The M&M Mix
with his late partner Sergio Munzibai, in 1982 till 1990 whose output of over 650 mixes will be
unmatched today. John continues The M&M legacy.
From the Rolling Stones to Gloria Estefan, The Temptations, Barry White, Marvin Gaye, James
Brown, Hall & Oates, Teena Marie, Aretha Franklin to BBE – we have all been molded by John’s
everlasting mix influence, love for his work and his Music..
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 Ya 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.
