David Morales spins true, classic New York house, the pumping, four-to-the-floor, body-moving tracks that everyone, whether elitist, anti-dance, or rockist still gives props to. His most recent album, 2 Worlds Collide, was one of the best released last year, thanks to the blazing first single and collaboration with Tamra Keenan, "Here I Am." That song is still rocking nightclubs around the nation, and Morales is expected to perform the track with her at Back Door Bamby's annual throwdown Def Mix (named after Morales's management company), one of the best parties during WMC.
