Ryan Morales by Miami New Times Starting out in New York as an intern for Wyclef, DJ Ryan Morales was originally known as Shockwave thanks to his All-State New Jersey reputation as a crushing linebacker. With almost 20 years of spinning under his belt, and now referring to himself as the new and improved RM2, he's making his way up and down South Florida and leaving his mark everywhere he goes. Scheduled to perform at venues such as Karu & Y and Atlantic in South Beach, Morales says he's learned quite a few tricks from his peers in the Dirty South. It's to be expected, owing to collaborations with local legends including DJ Sama, which, he says, is making his new sound "more electro and less diva but always tribal.
As Winter Music Conference approaches, Morales can barely contain his excitement over his first appearance at Ultra Music Festival. Making this point in his career even more notable is the upcoming release of his debut album, Resurrection, which he wrote, recorded, and produced under his own record label, House of Lords. "It's inspired by my moods," he says, making his music the product of raw emotion and not just your average house beats. Get ready to feel the music.
Interview with DJ Ryan Morales by Latino Boys Magazine 32 years old
What inspired you to become a DJ?
I was always into music and had been trained on playing the piano and drums since I was seven years old. I happened to stumble into it when I was 12 because of a friend who was also a DJ. He was so surprised on how quickly I took to it and he suggested I do it. He even gave me my first turntables. Thanks Enrique P!
What artists do you like to spin?
Anything from the 80’s: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Lime, Manparish, Depeche Mode, New Order…but
I'm big with Tiesto and Armin Van Burren stuff. I like to keep it fun for everyone.
Do you have any particular staple or song that you always play? If so, why?
My remix of Bon Jovi's Bad Name seems to be that song you will catch me playing just so I can get the crowd reaction. It always makes me chuckle to see the reaction it gets anywhere I play it. It’s a great feeling to see the crowd enjoy one of my creations!
What are some artists that have influenced you?
Depeche Mode is on top of the list. Then, I would have to say the rhythms of Tito Puente and the vocals of Sarah Brightman are up there too. As for DJs, Keoki was probably the first DJ I heard play in a nightclub and I was in love with the sound.
What is your favorite city to spin in and why?
Well Miami of course! It's where all the hotties go!
Where do you typically spin in South Florida?
Various places in Miami including the Ultra Music Festival every year and local clubs on the beach.
Do you have any special performances coming up?
I'll be at Dream in Miami on Tuesday, September 1st for a big event. After that it's my big birthday party...I'll keep you guys posted on the location.
