WHAT WOULD YOU DO... WITH ERICK MORILLO


When we were given the opportunity to do a feature with house music royalty and Sublimanal Records boss  Erick Morillo it did not take us long to work out which type of article it had to be.

When someone has been in the game as long as Erick has and been round the world probably more times than even he cares to mention, he is bound to have seen a thing or two most of us never will!

Therefore it was a no brainer that we had to do a ‘What Would You Do’ feature on the main man ahead of his headline set at the iconic  ‘Electric Baroque’ White Party at KUDETA on Saturday August 18th

Erick tells us how he would handle a request from Donald Trump, whether he is a Tom or Jerry kind of guy, tests his Bahasa skills and more…
