Erick Morillo has marked his first release of 2019 with new single ‘Fifth Element’, signalling a change of creative direction for the Colombian-American house legend.
Returning to his underground roots, Morillo enjoyed a memorable run of shows at Miami Music Week in March, playing with Jamie Jones, Resistance, and a spontaneous b2b2b on the beach with Loco Dice and Luciano. The platinum-selling artist will return to Europe this summer for a handpicked run of shows that focus solely on the dance floor, performing at DC10, Watergate, Amnesia, Resistance, NYC Downlow (Glastonbury) and Ants amongst others.
Releasing his first record back in 1992 on the iconic Strictly Rhythm imprint, Morillo is now into the 27th year of his illustrious music career, and remains as consistent in his output as ever. Enhancing his reputation with his weekly ‘Sessions’ parties in New York, it wasn’t long before the platinum-selling artist was throwing some of the biggest parties in dance music, including the annual Subliminal Sessions at the Miami at Winter Music Conference and his now-legendary Pacha Ibiza residency.
Out on Subliminal Records, ‘Fifth Element’ is evidence of a dance music legend returning to his roots and reconnecting with his creative flair to impressive effect.
