Known separately for their incredible achievements, having made their mark on the global dance music scene, today UK singer-songwriter DJ Rae links up with New York native, GRAMMY winner David Morales for the release of a Balearic Island tinged sensation ‘Something I’m Going Through’ for release on Tinted Records. An icon in his own right, David Morales has produced and remixed for the likes of Mariah Carey, U2, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Madonna, and Whitney Houston, and brings his award-winning refined house touch to the single, whilst DJ Rae who is arguably one of the most widely respected house artists in the game in recent years delivers yet again. Lyrically the record emulates what is being felt around the world right now, in that, although times may be tough, that everything will be ok in the end.
“‘Something I’m Going Through’ is totally introspective, a therapeutic song that I feel a big attachment to but never quite finished. When I started working with David we sparked up a real connection and I was compelled to send this to him. He felt it straight away and took it exactly where it needed to go, which was a really special moment for me. I got goosebumps from the first bar. It’s a very special record for us.” – DJ Rae
“When I heard ‘Something I’m Going Through’ I actually wanted it for my new album but Rae said that it was a very personal song to her and she wanted to release it. I clicked with Rae right away. It’s as if we’d known each other for a long time. Working with her has been an organic experience and a pleasure. We get along and we seem to be creatively in sync.” – David Morales
First nominated for a GRAMMY in 1996 as a producer on Mariah Carey’s Diamond certified album Daydream, Morales then won the GRAMMY Award for ‘Remixer of the Year’ in 1998, having worked his magic on a number of international hits including Mariah Carey’s “Dreamlover”, Janet Jackson’s “Throb”, Alison Limerick’s “Where Love Lives”, CeCe Peniston’s “Finally”, Jamiroquai’s “Space Cowboy”, Robert Owens’ “I’ll Be Your Friend”, and more. Often cited as being a driving force for the integration of dance music in the commercial / Top 40 space, his records have since been featured across TV and film such as The Devil Wears Prada, Ninja Turtles 2, Don’t Mess With the Zohan, and Star (TV Series). With a catalogue exceeding 500 records to date, the acclaimed producer has released three studio albums, and is known for his own original hit singles including “Needin’ U” which reached #1 on the UK dance charts, and became a club anthem the world over.
