With a career spanning over 30 years, David Morales is one of electronic music’s most cherished personalities. A native New Yorker, Morales was one of the first superstar DJs to actively tour the world. His discography boasts an endless array of hits, including star-studded remixes for the likes of Mariah Carey, U2, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Jamiroquai, Madonna and Whitney Houston. Without him, the global phenomenon and penetration of dance music in to Top 40 radio would not have been possible. Launching his DIRIDIM imprint in 2018, he began championing up-and-coming talent, as well as making a home for his own productions.
In 2020, due to the global pandemic and inability to travel, David created his Sunday Mass livestreaming show on Twitch to entertain and stay connected with his fans. Subsequently, the 2021 IMS Business Report cited him as one of the dance music artists who experienced online success during the pandemic. With Life Is A Song, Morales fuses classic and modern sensibilities across the album, inviting listeners into the depths of his mind.
