Some of Jeff's most recent remix productions include San Francisco natives: Gypsy Love, Kippy Marks, Drumspyder, Vahid & Parsa, and violinist/vocal duo, Fat Magic, to name a few. When speaking of Jeff's most influencial production, it would definitely have to be "Disco Shit", which was featured on the mix CD, and in an article of, the winter 2009 edition of New Zealand's world reknowned electronic & dance music magazine, Remix Magazine. "Disco Shit" was hand-selected along with tracks from other artists such as: Late Night Alumni, Crystal Method, Norman Doray & Albin Myers, and Tom Neville. Jeff Morena has been a DJ since 1991, mixing the earlier genres of house music, as well as 80's & 90's classic pop/nu wave/electro/freestyle, disco, old school, and hip hop & R&B. Jeff spent his initial 10 years holding down residencies at every smash venue in central California, but since devoting his last 10 years strictly to his primary passion of house music, Jeff frequents numerous venues in The Bay Area, primarily in the cities he loves most, San Francisco & San Jose.
Because of Jeff Morena's vast background of music, he has been able to throw down everything house music on the decks from funky disco/vocal, to bangin' electro, to melodic progressive, to dark techno, to 80's/90's/rock remixes, and even Top 40 dance remixes. Jeff loves to take the dance floor on a journey through his years of living in a world of house music, by mixing various selections of some of his most memorable tracks of the past, with some of the exclusive releases of today, along with some of the rarest tracks/remixes from his own secret cache, all blended together along with his own productions and remixes.
While in the studio conjuring up more creative tracks & remixes, Jeff Morena always has the passion of house music coursing through his veins. Through his drive of motivation and his constant energetic persona, Jeff has one main goal in mind, "I want to make a positive impact in the house music industry, by sharing my love for house with everyone else, on dance floors around the world."
