This week we’ll just let our DJ line speak for itself…
Battle Hymn is proud to have the legendary DJ & producer DAVID MORALES & Atlanta favourite VICKI POWELL!!!!!!!!
A native New Yorker, David Morales grew up during one of dance music’s most influential era and frequented its legendary clubs such as the Loft and the Paradise Garage.

Morales honed his DJ skills at New York City’s most popular clubs throughout the 80s and then embarked on a remixing career. In the mid-80’s Morales teamed with Chicago house music legend Frankie Knuckles and For The Record DJ Pool founder/NYC nightlife impresario Judy Weinstein for the creation of Def Mix Productions.

David Morales has remixed and produced over 500 releases for artists including Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Eric Clapton, Pet Shop Boys, U2, Whitney Houston, and Jamiroquai. Morales was nominated for his first Grammy Award in 1996 as a Producer on Mariah Carey’s album ‘Daydream’ for the song ‘Fantasy’. He was nominated again the following year and ultimately won the 1998 Grammy Award for “Remixer of the Year”.

David Morales made his solo debut in 1993 with ‘The Program’ & In 1998 Morales released “Needin’ U” which soon became a #1 Dance Record and a bonafide club classic. In 2005 he released “Two Worlds Collide” followed up in 2011 with ”Changes”.

Thanks to his remix and production work Morales was among the first DJs to actively tour the world. Whether it is playing alongside of the “Kings of House” with Louie Vega and Tony Humphries or representing his company Def Mix with Hector Romero and Quentin Harris, Morales happily adapts to each situation…a true superstar dj & legend, we’re beyond excited to hear his set at Battle Hymn!

“OMG I LOVE Vicki Powell!,” is a phrase commonly heard along the Rainbow Railroad, and for good reason. Vicki is not just holding down the queer underground in Atlanta, she’s a glue that helps bind our global family.

From her Sunday Service party,to the newly launched Deep South ATL, and guest spots at some of our favorite parties all across North America, Vicki Powell is a force to be reckoned with.

Her infectious sets weave house, techno, gospel and disco together seamlessly, and her energy will quickly make you add your voice to team “OMG I LOVE Vicki Powell”
