Def Mix and Ministry of Sound have combined forces to bring to the UK a 12-hour Def Mix Day & Night event on Bank Holiday Sunday 3 May. The 12-hour party begins at 3pm in Ministry of Sound’s outside area, The Courtyard, featuring a 6-foot barbecue and cocktail mixologists, with a soundtrack provided by David Morales (performing a special disco set), Ricky Morrison, and London Disco Society. When night falls, the action moves inside to The Box and 103.
The Box will showcase the full Def Mix big room experience with headliner David Morales joined by Def Mix mainstays, Tedd Patterson and Hector Romero, and supported by Ministry co-founder Justin Berkmann. More names will be announced soon.
Event promoter Adam Newsome, who was responsible for A Night In Paradise, will also be bringing his Mental Genius party to 103 with DJs Dave Lubin, Tom Crane, Johnny Landers & Ollie Beavis.
David Morales, DJ, producer and remixer, for which he’s received a Grammy award, is synonymous with the rise of house music. In the ‘80s and ‘90s, he cleverly remixed established artists, often creating the definitive version including Jamiroquai’s ‘Space Cowboy’ and Mariah Carey’s ‘Dreamlover’. David recently reintroduced his disco alias The Face, the name he used on his biggest solo hit ‘Needin You’ and has released a new single with Kym Mazelle entitled ‘Lovin’.
Def Mix, the dance music promotions company, was created by For The Record disco record pool boss Judy Weinstein in 1987 with David Morales to manage his burgeoning DJ and remix career and in the process adding Godfather of House, Frankie Knuckles (RIP), Satoshi Tomiie and Hector Romero to the Def Mix family. The company soon became the epitome of New York cool as Knuckles and Morales took house music worldwide with Def Mix events being held across the globe. This year, their DJs and events will be visiting Ibiza, Miami, Italy, Greece, Spain, Slovenia and the UK to name a few.
