Angel Moraes

Real Name:
Angel Morales
Profile:
Brooklyn-born DJ, producer and remixer, Angel Moraes started his career in the 90's along with his own label "Hot 'N' Spycy". He earned worldwide recognition for his releases, "I Like It (I Like How You're Lov'in Me)", "The Cure" and "Welcome To The Factory", as well as remixes for Funky Green Dogs, Pet Shop Boys, Jaydee and Fire Island to name just a few.
Angel is also an original founder of Stereo Club in Montreal.

His break came in 1987 after a couple of years as a mobile DJ when he was DJing at a party and Victor Simonelli started chatting. Victor invited him to the studio to assist in his remix of Ebony Soul - Can't Hardly Wait. Moraes took a copy to Johnny Vicious and the 2 DJs clicked. Vicious introduced him to Jeffrey Rodman and the two decided to set up a label together.

I first heard 'Welcome to the Factory' in a record shop when I was 17 and had only being DJing and clubbing for a year.
It absolutely blew my mind and up to that point was the sexiest, druggiest, coolest house record I had heard.
I heard it there before the clubs and I fell in love instantly.
He went on to produce many more great tracks and remixes but for me nothing topped my excitement when I first hear that.
I met him when he played Sugarshack at The Empire in Middlesbrough. We got chatting after his gig as I wanted to meet my hello. He was a great guy and loved my enthusiasm for his work. He was still a very underground DJ at the time.
I got invited to the after party upstairs, Angel got me a drink and later dissapeared into the night with a very tall, leggy blonde. Like me he is only about 5'6" tall haha.
In his New York drawl he said "catch you later maaaaan, I think I got a fan here haha".
