House music legend and New York born DJ and Producer Erick Morillo is bringing back his Subliminal Soul record label.
Subliminal Soul was a sub-label under his flagship Subliminal Records imprint initially founded back in 2001 with the release of Mustafa’s ‘I Submit 2 U’. Subliminal Soul focuses on the funkier and groovier side of deep house music and was largely founded due to the lack of consistent material of that style in the early 2000’s. Future releases will feature Morillo himself.
The label officially relaunches on August 28th with a single from Roland Clark and Dean Mickowski titled ‘Redlight’.
The New York-born DJ and producer spent the majority of his teen years in Columbia becoming accustomed to merengue and salsa music. It wasn’t until after he took a class at New York’s Center for the Media Arts that he began DJing at local clubs. After meeting Latin star El General after a show, the two became friends and collaborated on the 1991 hit ‘Muevelo which featured a blend of reggae, house, and a familiar techno sample. After befriending house icon Louie Vega, Morillo landed another major release with New York’s iconic house label of the time, Strictly Rhythm, under Morillo’s Reel 2 Real moniker. He finally settled on the Erick Morillo moniker in the mid-90’s and has since enjoyed consistent success with Subliminal Records and a massive discography that features collabs with Louie Vega, Harry Romero, and many more.
