Throughout the ‘80s, M+M Productions esentially ruled the post-Studio 54 club landscape. Comprised of DJ John Morales and the late Sergio Munzibai, this NYC-based dynamic duo remixed just about everyone worth remixing in the Reagan era, including El DeBarge, Hall and Oates, Miami Sound Machine, Spandau Ballet, and even the Rolling Stones. This two-CD collection gathers up a plethora of never-before-released post-session mixes cut by Morales from a robust variety of some of the most beloved cult favorites on the New York underground disco circuit. From deep cuts on the legendary Salsoul catalog like Inner Life’s rendition of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” to such boogie bangers as Universal Robot Band’s “Wanna Be Your Lover” and Instant Funk’s “Barely Breaking Even”, The M&M Mixes is a must-have for any educated fan of vintage dance music.
