Subliminal Records boss and internationally renowned DJ / Producer, Erick Morillo, has selected and mixed ‘Subliminal Invasion’, a new double CD compilation due for release 1st August on Subliminal Records. Alongside 5 exclusive, unreleased tracks, the album gives a taste of the music to expect at the massive ‘Subliminal Invasion’ parties at Pacha, Ibiza every Wednesday over the summer.
The ‘Subliminal Invasion’ album features some of the biggest names in dance music, all expertly mixed and delivered as only Erick Morillo knows how! He comments, “The Subliminal Invasion CD for me is a look inside my year and a representation of Subliminal and where we are right now musically. I mixed it with the intention to invade your mind and to take your on a musical journey of what I think makes for a Subliminal night out. Enjoy!” CHECK OUT OUR ERICK MORILLO INTERVIEW BELOW
Your theme at Pacha this year is Subliminal Invasion, which we believe is Space themed. Can you elaborate? Is it just a good excuse to have Space vixens?
The idea behind Subliminal Invasion this year is, put simply, we wanted to invade peoples minds with our music, our dancers and our energy. It’s about creating an environment for people to come and let themselves go. So come and enjoy and get lost in the invasion.
Who are some of the picks of this year’s line-up, both from those who’ve already played, and from who you have coming during the rest of the season?
The ones that really stand out are Eddie Thoneick, Chuckie from the Dirty Dutch & Harry Choo Choo Romero they always do a really good job. I’m also really excited about having Danny Tenaglia come and play. It’s been a while since he’s played at Pacha, so this is quite special for me.
Can you give us a run through of the mix you’ve done to promote the night? We hear there are a few exclusives including a Craig David collaboration. How did you meet him?
The Subliminal Invasion CD. It’s a snap shot of what I’m playing in the clubs today. The first CD is mainly funky house with some vocals. The second CD is a little more afterhours with a darker vibe. Hopefully a true representation of where I am musically right now.
We’ve included 5 exclusives on the 2 CDS. The first is ‘We are the Night‘ by In the Screen which is a new group made up of myself, Harry Romero & Jose Nunez featuring vocals by Rachael Starr. We also have “Fly Away” featuring Craig David. This is a track by In the Screen Vs Rony Seikaly and something we’re really excited about. Also a great track by Armand Pena called ‘Tonight’, then we have ‘Afterworld’ by Jose Nunez and also ‘Lasers’ by Lights Out.
You’ve spoken about also wanting to get into acting alongside DJing and producing. How is that coming along? Is it something that you’re serious about?
For sure its something that I would love to get into, but at the moment there’s just so much going on musically I don’t have the time to follow it through. But yes I’m serious about it and would love to give it some more thought soon.
Last year you told us you’d treated yourself to a new hot tub in your villa in Ibiza. What are you going to be splashing out on to celebrate your success this year?!
My Staff! They’ve been my rock and stand by me through the rough and the smooth. Most of my team have been with me for years. I’ll definitely get more kicks out of seeing them appreciated than a Jacuzzi. Wow…I’m growing up!
