George Morel

George Morel is a true pioneer in the world of dance music. He began in the late 80’s playing at neighborhood parties, where he honed his skills, later becoming a regular guest DJ around the world and specially in all of the top Ibiza clubs such as Pacha, Amnesia, El Divino and Space.

Besides his DJ talents, Morel is also making waves worldwide writing and producing his own music. In the early 90’s he landed his first production session working with David Cole (of C & C Music Factory fame), and later led Morel to produce and write the infectious hit “Wiggle It” for 2 In A Room. Later, in 1990, flushed with success, soon after Morel began working full-time collaborating with C&C Music Factory on edits arrangements of the group’s own material such as “Things That Make You Go Umm”, “Lets Rock & Roll”, “Emotions” for Mariah Carey and “Let The Beat Hit Them” by Lisa Lisa and many more.

Morel’s hard work and dedication was celebrated with several Gold and Platinum records, Billboard Music Awards and the worldwide recognition success of the dance label Strictly Rhythm Records where he was the Vice President of A & R. In his seven year tenure at Strictly Rhythm, Morel worked with the crème of the emerging House talent America had to offer such as Roger Sanchez, Felix Da Housecat, Erick Morillo, Sandy Rivera (K.O.T.), DJ Pierre, Mood 2 Swing, Roy Davis Jr., Barbara Tucker, CeCe Rogers, Roland Clark and Ultra Nate, as well as many other producers, recording artist to name a few.

His infamous releases Morel’s Groove Volumes, No Love Lost and Special with Sir James creating his own style with a series of rhythm-smart cool, deep and highly seductive singles made for late night consumption and big-room systems, where haunting riffs and tripped out soundscapes would conjure up a myriad of emotions and images. From the stark instrumental ‘Let’s Groove’, ‘No Love Lost’, ‘Special’ by Sir James and the self-explanatory ‘Touch Of Jazz’, through to the Latin-etched ‘Todos Los Latinos En La Casa’, the piano-happy ‘I Feel It’; his versatility was boundless and sounds ahead of time and still being played to this day...

“When he left Strictly Rhythm, he took the rhythm with it,” adds Junior Vasquez “It’s a good thing that he’s back in full force with productions for his own label — I play every one I get my hands on. George is one of a kind and has my eternal respect.” But it’s not just New Yorkers who acknowledge George’s contribution to the clubbing scene. “He’s a seminal figure in the development of House Music,” states Judge Jules. “George was one of the early influences for me when moulding the Full Intention sound with his tough but groovy EPs on Strictly Rhythm,” adds Michael Gray. A point underscored by StonBridge: “He gave us the deep but funky club grooves with just the right balance between tribal and funky.” His global impact not going unnoticed with DJ dates across Europe, Asia and the Americas most weekends.

In addition to his many productions and projects he has also appeared on various television programs, radio shows, magazines and books and now has his own exclusive radio broadcast at Sunshine Live Radio to millions of listeners in Germany as well as several other regular monthly radio guest appearances on shows around the world.
George Morel continues to serve as a panelist-judge for the Grammy remix category and has been regularly talked about on Pete Tong's BBC “Radio 1” show.

“George Morel is one of the best producers of HOUSE MUSIC. I’ve been a big fan and staunch supporter for a long time. I love this man!” -Frankie Knuckle

“George Morel is one of the few veterans of House Music who stays true to the sound he has created. He has been consistent as a DJ/producer for many years and shows the true meaning of longevity.” - Louie Vega

“People don’t realize it but I believe that the stuff George did with 2 In A Room influenced one of the biggest house hits ever - Eric Morillo’s ‘I Like To Move It’.” - DJ Pierre

George Morel and FabFilter

"I learned about FabFilter by searching for new synth sounds plug-ins. Once I found FabFilter Twin 2, I immediately noticed how great it works and how amazing it sounds!"

"It was only a very short matter of time that I noticed all the other FabFilter plug-ins are also amazing. I quickly ended up getting each and every one of them, from their compressor (Pro-C), eq (Pro-Q) to their synths. I highly recommend FabFilter plug-ins for any kind of music you are creating."
