A name synonymous with electronic music, Erick Morillo is part of the generation of DJs that were formative of the house music revolution. With a career spanning several decades, Erick has remained one of the most in-demand and instantly recognizable producers in the world since launching Subliminal Records in 1997 with Harry Romero and Jose Nunez.
Now, 20 years on, the Colombian-American has unveiled his incredible two-CD mix album to mark the 20th anniversary of Subliminal Sessions. An eclectic and diverse mix with 24 tracks from various labels, the compilation represents a stockpile of the records both old and new that Erick holds dear to his heart. Kicking things off with the iconic ‘Experimental E’ by Eagles & Butterflies, Erick takes his listeners on a musical journey, effortlessly mixing in fresh releases ‘Parallel’ and ‘Red Light.’
‘Subliminal Sessions 2017’ acts as a physical embodiment of the vibrant sets that have made Erick so hugely popular worldwide, from the instant success of his weekly ‘Sessions’ parties in New York to hosting events like the annual road-blocking Subliminal Sessions parties in Miami at Winter Music Conference to his coveted residency at Ministry of Sound and of course his now legendary Subliminal Sessions parties at Pacha Ibiza.
Featuring Andrea Oliva’s mix of Thick Dick’s ‘Welcome To The Jungle’ and Harry Romero ‘She’s A Freak’, ‘Subliminal Sessions 2017’ has been crafted following a red-hot period for the label after Erick announced his partnership with Armada in 2016. The collection of tracks cements Erick Morillo’s status as a DJ, producer, and curator of the highest order.
Ahead of its release, Erick said: “I am so excited to bring the Subliminal Sessions compilation series back because it always offers the listener and myself a snapshot of where I am as an artist at the moment. I have put a lot of time, sweat and tears into making sure it flows effortlessly. I am very happy with the track selection and look forward to seeing if people enjoy and play it as much as I have already.”
