Forward Disco has done it again, bringing in some of house music’s most visionary soundsmiths to rock an unrivaled party for true believers. This time they’ve brought in two titans from Frankie Knuckle’s pioneering Def Mix crew, David Morales and Hector Romero. Morales, born in Brooklyn, is credited as one of the first to inject the New York house sound into the mainstream starting in the late 80s, doing remixes and edits for artists like Chaka Khan, Technotronic, INXS, Gloria Estefan, and Backstreet Boys. Originals like the beloved “Needin’ U” have endeared him to the underground. Romero is a former child prodigy who, while still in his early teens, spun at The Bronx’s hottest nightspots. He’s an industry renaissance man, who operated David Morales’s DMI imprint and founded SAW.RECORDINGS with Satoshi Tomiie. His Undulation mix series is a must for those delving into tribal house, techno and breakbeats.
They’re joined on Saturday by Forward Disco residents Sean Cormac and Chili Davis. It’s summer, people. This is how house music was meant to be heard, felt and danced to.
