Grammy-winning American house music DJ and producer, David Morales (53), says that he could easily see himself spending his retirement days in Croatia…
Morales, speaking to daily Vecernji list ahead of his concert at Club Aurora in Primošten this weekend, says that after so many visits to Croatia he no longer feels like a guest. Morales, who has been coming to play at Club Aurora in Primošten since the summer of 2001, says he couldn’t feel more welcome there.
“Croats welcomed me such that wherever I went I felt so welcome, from the restaurant to the local shop. I always eat at the restaurant on the old square. Every year that I come I feel like I am coming to visit my family,” said the famous DJ, who has remixed everything from Mariah Carey – to Michael Jackson – to Kylie Minouge.
“The Croatian public are for me one of the best in the world, not just in Europe. They love to have fun, are warm and in a very friendly mood,” said Morales, who says that he would like to one day live in Croatia.
“I always repeat that I really would like to come and live here once. I have been to Split and the Dalmatian islands also. Your lifestyle here is unbelievable, and quality of life is something that is for me currently very important. I am sure that I could live here and happily grow old, time will tell,” Morales told Vecernji list, before adding that Croatian girls were among the most beautiful in the world.
Morales is one of the most prolific remixers of all time, transforming many pop music songs into club-friendly dance tracks. Born in New York City, he is of Puerto Rican descent. He won a Grammy Award for Remixer of the Year, Non-Classical, in 1998.
