There is nothing better than seeing Erick Morillo spin some tunes on a Saturday night – apart from seeing him play all night long that is. Lucky for us (and you), Platinum selling dance veteran, Erick Morillo, is returning to Ministry of Sound to play – that’s right – all night long.
It was at the age of eleven that Erick Morillo began experimenting with turntables, and developed a particular preference for music steeped in funk and rhythm, which has remained with him to the present day. Since his early entry into the house circuit, he has released music under a number of pseudonyms, such as The Dronez (with Harry Romero), RAW, Smooth Touch, RBM, Deep Soul and Club Ultimate and remixed everyone from Whitney Houston to Basement Jaxx. Today, much of his time is devoted to running the legendary Subliminal Records empire, now synonymous with funky, soulful house. Want a taste of what’s in store? Check out Radio 1’s Essential Mix Masters with Erick Morillo, and let the music speak for itself:
Over in 103 is Morillo’s close friend and collaborator, the infamous Harry Choo Choo Romero, who will also be playing all night long. Aside from his work with Subliminal and Erick Morillo, he has produced several hit records under the name of HCCR and Mongobonix. Harry also owns a sub label of Subliminal called Bambossa, from which he has released 6 tracks, including “Tania”, “Warped” and “Son of mongo”. Check out this exclusive mix he did for us earlier on in the week:
