Erick Morillo (born 1971 in Cartagena de Indias, Columbia) is a world known DJ, producer, and record label owner. Morillo has been in the electronic music business for decades. Over the years, he has produced under various pseudonyms including The Dronez, RAW, RBM, Ministers De la Funk, Touch, Club Ultimate, and my personal favorite Lil Mo Ying Yang (WHAT?!?). Lil “Mo” Yin Yang was Morillo’s pseudonym around 1996. Under this name Morillo put out some groovy House tracks. Check out my favorite “Reach”.

Erick Morillo had been DJing since he was 11 years old and after playing several gigs for weddings, friends, and family, he decided to attend a studio engineering coarse at the local Center for Media Arts. After scraping up enough cash to put together a studio, he started producing house tracks. He reached out to record labels but was constantly rejected. Then in 1994, he created a track called “The New Anthem” under the moniker Reel 2 Reel. The labels began to take notice and Reel 2 Reel got signed. Shortly after, Reel 2 Reel produced “I Like to Move It” which hot the top of the charts world wide.

Today, Erick Morillo is a platinum selling artist who runs the legendary Subliminal Records Empire. Subliminal Records has had over 100 releases and has won many awards including best label at the Muzik Awards in 1999 and 2000. Subliminal and Morillo host a few of the most popular events in EDM each year. The legendary Subliminal Session parties at Pacha, Ibiza and weekly sessions parties in NYC are defiantly on my bucket list of amazing must dos. As a EDM addict , Morillo is a great fix. His sets get me higher than any other DJ’s I have seen. I love the energy at his shows and can never stop dancing. Being a Florida girl at heart, I never miss a Morillo show in LA. He brings the South Beach, Latino Vibe to the the West Coast and it makes me feel right at home.
“At the end of the day, when you go to a club, you go to lose yourself, you go to be bad. You go to escape, it’s about letting go of your normal life, letting go of your stresses, being bad on the dance floor.”
