I can’t help to relate the name of Frankie Knuckles and David morales to that time when we all didn’t search records sitting on a couch with a laptop over our legs. To me, the Saturday’s mornings used to be the “haunt days”. I used to woke up early and drive to downtown in a obsessive search to those plastic slices… Dear second hand shops where you couldn’t listen the records. Just using your own knowledge or the intuition in most of the cases…to find more jewels to increment your repertory.
At the beginning of the 90′s, any 12″ where appeared Knuckles or Morales doing the remix or just envolved in the production, went directly to the bag because often their work used to have a big success.
I used those vinyls so many times to change the rum of the set from a hip hop beat to a house feeling…those basslines and slowly kick pulsation over the 100 bpms were always a friendly tool for a perfect mix and it still working..
Knuckles & Morales aka Defmix were everywhere in the 90′s, sometimes both together, sometimes individually. But you could read their names on the flipside of thousand 12″, putting their touch over Pop music, funk, R&B…From Madonna to unknown underground artists, no one was safe from their talented fingers. We can say without no doubt that they wrote many of the rules for the Club’s game. Truly masters in an age where the scene was just beginning.
This second chapter of Tribute to the masters meet in two separated parts with much of my 12″ Defmix’s collection. Obviously many of them have been out of the project because their work is too much extensive to resume in a few hours. So basically i have focused in what i call the “my Defmix golden age” that means end of the 80′s and the entire 90′s.
Like in the previous chapter with Larry Heard, there is no tracklist available, just to give all the value to the amalgam of their legacy as a whole. A union of their sounds. Also you will discovered that many of the songs are transformed and remixed in real time so the result is not exactly as the original version was…well you will see…
Hope that you will enjoy the beats…
