Erick Morillo was born in  in New York. He spent most of his pre-teen years in Cartagena, Colombiawhere he lived with his family, and grew accustomed to salsa and merengue music. He moved back to the United States at age 11,    living with his mother, Elisa,  and sister,  Sheila,  in an apartment at Bergenline Avenue in Union City, New Jersey. The two collaborated in on the single, "Muevelo", a mixture of reggae, house musicand a sample of T99 's techno single "Anasthasia" that became a surprise hit, and went platinum.
As his remixes became familiar in Latin clubs, Morillo Fanu / Bill Laswell - Lodge out through his friendship with New York house veteran "Little" Louie Jerusalem I - Atrium Carceri - The Old City - Leviathan (Official Soundtrack), whom he met through then-unknown singer Marc Anthonywith whom Vega had worked on the seminal house anthem, "Ride on the Rhythm".
According to Morillo, Vega advised him to "focus on vocals". The song did well in the charts and in clubs, garnering attention for Morillo. Later that year, Strictly Rhythm released the Real 2 Real's second single. This was followed with a album from which another several singles were released, most notably "Mueve la Cadera" "Move Your Body". Wanting to create respectable house music,  he produced "Jazz It Up", launching it under the label of the Erick Morillo Project, in New Born Soul - The Blind Boys Of Alabama - Atom Bomb to ensure street credibility.
The song did well, and boosted his confidence. Morillo intended a third album for Reel to Real, but his relationship with the Mad Stuntman soured, which derailed the project. Searching for a way to reinvent himself, Morillo attended The Forum, a self-help seminar in New York City, where he gained insight into finding happiness through things other than wealth and his frantic work schedule.
The seminar also enabled him to escape his creative rut by helping him analyze his past and set future goals, one of which was to become a successful global DJ. Its first single was 's "Fun", which featured Chicago diva Dajae's, and drew positive response via test pressings and buzz across the Atlantic. However, Dajae refused to sign the contract with Subliminal, and vocalist Jocelyn Brown was brought Party Ride - Eric Morillo* - Best World DJs (MP3) - Volume 05 to re-record the vocals.
The remaining trio of Morillo, Romero and Nunez formed the finalized core of Subliminal, and are also known as the remix team The Dronez. With Subliminal, Morillo managed to find the balance between "underground" respectability and financial success. In lateMorillo completed a U. Morillo has also hosted various other club nights across the globe, such as his mid-week Subliminal Sessions parties at Champs in New York.
When they were evicted from that venue, the Sessions relaunched at Centro-Fly. Commenting on his socializing with promoters, Morillo says: . I party with the promoters I play for. A lot of DJs don't like to do that; they play the party, go back to the hotel and then get ready to go home.
Not me. I don't deny it! For me a DJ is someone who brings a vibe. If you don't party, then how do you bring that vibe? He has been known to play up to 30 jobs a month in locations including GreeceMaltaAmsterdamLondonMadridBelfastand Russia. People were crying and waving American flags, everybody was singing.
It's my most emotional memory as a DJ.
