And the Beat goes on..., 31 May 2013
I feel i should add my complete praise to this rather splendid collection of 'old school' dance/r&b/soul tunes that have been wonderfully re-mixed for the listener. As yet i have not discovered the first two volumes of John Morales M&M Mixes but on the sheer strength of this third collection it is only a matter of time. What is remarkable about this collection is the way that he has mixed the tunes with the right amount of bass and drums to create a real audio delight; particularly for (aging) music fans like myself who are not in the habit of frequenting the disco/club environment now and prefer their music rush at home.
The tunes chosen by John Morales are a real mix of the well known and the more obscure. As someone who did frequent the club scene in the late 70's and early 80's many of the tunes are completely new to me and it has been a pleasant surprise to hear them sounding alive and fresh as the day they were made in the studio. On numerous occasions in the past i have been disappointed when i have bought or heard supposedly remastered or remixed work from different artists. However, if you are a lover of good dance orientated music then this collection should be purchased immediately. John Morales has imbued this release with a solid and warm sound; in that respect he is completely on the money.
