David Morales drops summer remix of Dino MFU
Dino MFU returns to King Street with Not True: a slick, soaring house anthem with a phenomenal vocal from Alxndra Good backed up with remixes from the one and only David Morales.
Over the last 25 years, New York born and raised DJ/producer Dino MFU has forged a storied career living in Athens, Greece, and is now one of the most widely recognised artists in the country. He has held long term residencies at the top venues in the country including Cavo Paradiso, Scarpa and Bolivar, releasing his unique house cuts on labels like Vega Records and Nite Grooves. For his latest release he returns to the legendary King Street Sounds imprint, bringing long-time friend and collaborator David Morales along for remix duties.
As with much of Dino’s production, it’s hard to classify Not True in a single genre. Incorporating elements of both progressive and soulful house and well as touches of electro, the atmospheric breakdown builds to a huge crescendo before Dino unleashes a stunning, neon-flecked synth line that takes the record to another place entirely.
For those in need of a reminder, David Morales is a globally revered DJ, a Grammy award-winning record producer, a songwriter, and one of the most influential dance music artists of all time. It’s no exaggeration to say that the global phenomenon and penetration of dance music into Top 40 radio would not have been possible without him, and his discography of hits and underground cuts alike is without equal. As you’d expect, his remix of Not True is sheer class: a masterclass in subtle progression with Morales building the tension with a chugging rhythm, sparing use of the piano and vocal and warm, open chords.
We premiere the remix on Data Transmission, check it out below and grab it here.
