David Morales - Rise Album Sampler
Limited red colored vinyl LP pressing. 'David Morales is a globally revered American DJ, a Grammy award-winning record producer, songwriter, and a businessman. He has produced and remixed over 500 records for an all-star roster of multi-platinum artists, including Mariah Carey, U2, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Madonna, and Whitney Houston. The global phenomenon and penetration of dance music into Top 40 radio would not have been possible without him. Native New Yorker, Morales was one of the first superstar DJs to actively tour the world-and his activity, over the years has only increased. In 2020, due to the global pandemic and inability to travel, he launched, Sunday Mass, a livestreaming show on Twitch to entertain his fans across the world. The 2021 IMS Business Report based on data, cited him as one of the dance music artists who experienced online success during the pandemic. As restrictions for travel continue to ease globally, Morales has DJ gigs booked through the end of the year in New York, the UK, Italy, Greece, and Croatia. Morales launched DIRIDIM Records in 2018. With this new label, Morales is signing and developing artists-and naturally, releasing some of his own productions. DIRIDIM celebrates all kinds of dance music, from the classic sounds Morales is known for to straight up electronic. In June 2021, Morales released Parkside Ave, an instrumental, afro-jazz influenced album. His next album, Rise featuring artists, Mr. V., Blakkat, Elle Cato, Michelle Perera, Lea Lorien, and Tiger Wilson, among others, is due in December 2021. His unquenchable thirst for newness is precisely why this native New Yorker remains relevant. 'It's about keeping an open mind,' Morales explains. This 4-track album sampler from his forthcoming album Rise, pressed on red vinyl, features four stellar house cuts.
