ANGEL MORAES

Every now and then a person comes along that redefines his craft and in the process inspires those around him. Angel Moraes is that person...It all began in the Summer of 1975, while listening to the radio Angel was completely captivated by this little track called "Swearin to god" so at just 9 years old this brooklyn born and raise DJ/Producer purchased his first record, the classic Frankie Valli smash. This small gesture would awake a passion in him that would ultimately pave the road for things to come and take him around the world. He has come to be known as the DJs Producer and the dance-floors DJ. The mid to late 70's was a time when roller rinks were rockin, block parties were bumpin, and the sounds of disco ruled the New York airwaves. Constantly listening to the great radio stations of the time, WKTU 92, 98.7 KISS and 107.5 WBLS, Angel was never out of touch with the sounds he loved . It was around this time that the young Moraes realized what he wanted to do with his life. Coming of age in the golden era of NYCs legendary disco and house scene and always on the prowl for inspired sounds, he was a regular for the late night underground groove at Jellybeans Funhouse. However, it wasnt until a friend introduced him to the magic of the Paradise Garage that he discovered home. The Garage wasnt just another club for Angel, it was everything, like living in a dream. He remember's "The first time I walked into the Garage I remember saying to myself, Holy shit! who the fuck did this"? > >> > >> Sometime later while spinning at a house party for fellow Garage head and friend Sally Cortes (who's vocal's are present in "welcome to the factory") Angel was introduced to veteran producer Victor Simonelli. They hit it off and the meeting turned into a studio session. Angel was so confortable in the setting that he decided to sacrifice the security of his day job and pursue his life long dream fulltime. 1993 was a big turning point, having founded Hot n Spycy Recordings with partner Jeffrey Rodman (who co-owned Sound Factory Bar) Angel set out on a mission to introduce a whole new sound, and introduce it he did. From his very first productions "release yourself", "the cure", "I like it", The Moraes Sound started making waves and fast. His creative approach to producing, engineering and mastering, would result in the hottest rhythm sections to date. With drum patterns, dirty bass lines, industrial sounds, and stirring vocals, the likes no one had ever heard before, Angel was quikly creating and pioneering an industrial sound that is widely used in productions today, establishing Angel as a highly respected and sought after Producer/Remixer. Very early in his career he was invited to work on projects for The Pet Shop Boys, KD Lang, Jamie Myerson, Jocelyn Brown, Loleatta Holloway, and most recently Suzanne Palmer, Roy Davis Jr., and Dana Divine, then came the seminal now classic underground anthem "welcome to the factory". This track absolutely exploded. Inspiring people to take a different aproach in the way tracks are produced. Many of those people are highly respected producers today. With "Factory" word rapidly began to spread, the tracks began to chart, and Angel"s skills in the booth came into heavy demand. An intensive touring schedule has made him a well-known name and a regular favorite throughout Europe, Asia, the Americas and Canada. > >> > >> It was his first couple of trips to Montreal, Quebec that Angel knew he would opt on the Canadian metropolis to house his long coming inspiration, Stereo. The underground afterhours that has become known as the world's greatest afterhours club. Inspired by his many nights at the Garage, stereo was pretty much modeled after the legendary club and with the same philosophy. The big difference was the Mr Moraes designed, built and installed the now infamous sound system all on his own. Angel is in a class by himself as the only person in the dance music industry who can Produce, DJ and design and build his own sound systems at the level that he does. As a person who's always looking t
