In Massive Tunes, we take a look at the biggest tunes in dance music, the tracks that go off every single time.
Produced under the pseudonym, David Morales Presents The Face, the now-iconic track dropped in the summer of 1998. Having been available to DJs for months prior, the song was already an established club hit and would go on to become Morales' biggest commercial success and a bonafide house anthem.
Never intended as an official track, Morales only released it commercially after an overwhelmingly positive reaction form dancers and fellow DJs when he included the track in his DJ sets. The result of a three-hours experimenting with various samples, the final track features samples from The Chi-Lites - "My First Mistake" and Rare Pleasure - "Let Me Down Easy". The track became an almost over-night classic and introduced Morales to a mainstream audience via heavy radio airplay.
A ridiculous amount of remixes of "Needin' U" have been created over the years - a great many of them by David Morales himself. There is the 10-Minutes extended 'Boss Anthem Mix', the shorter 'Need-A-Dub' mix. The 2001 re-release "Needin' U II" and the 'Dark Dace Dub' all of which were created by Morales.
David Morales will headline Groove Odyssey with Bobby & Steve, Stacy Kidd and Bryan Chambers on Sat 29th December, tickets & more info here.
