A timeless set from David Morales recorded at the 11th Birthday Party night back in 1993. Seemlessly mixed and full of energy. Morales played in the basement of the club; a dark, dirty and hedonistically sweaty room perfect for messing with the mind, body and soul! playing tracks from MAW, Todd Terry, Pfantasy and Marshall Jefferson to name a few.
To quote 'Trackhead' to whom I owe thanks for the original upload of this set 'Stripped to the waist, wearing a skull cap & tattooed muscles, Morales played street tough New York City house music, and there's lessons in here for modern DJs'.... Morales rocked and always will do!!
Sadly as far as I can recall, Morales never played the Haçienda again due to a joyless squirmish involving the throwing of a bottle! At least we have this superb set to remind us how great these nights were, how Morales ruled the dancefloors and once again another Haç memory for us all to enjoy.
