Legendary producer and DJ Erick Morillo returns to his long-running Subliminal label with a new collaboration together with upcoming Berlin artist Junolarc. ‘Blinded’, featuring Ora Solar, is out now.
The single sees Morillo couple his classic US house background with Junolarc’s European techno sounds. The atmospheric track contrasts a heavy bassline with the breathy, echoing vocals of Ora Solar, as growing synth arpeggios take ‘Blinded’ to its climax.
The single follows the success of the pair’s previous collaboration, ‘This Is How We Do It’, which was first premiered by world famous tastemaker Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1. They swiftly followed up with ‘Better Life’, featuring the soulful vocals of Miss McClore -with so much high quality output in a relatively short space of time, it’s clear that Erick and Junolarc are a well matched collaborative duo.
Erick Morillo has been busy in the studio of late, with a series of singles due for release on Subliminal this autumn. Following an incredible summer of touring – during which he made history playing at iconic club Space’s final closing party – he’s now also gearing up for an intimate UK series of gigs.
Finally, his first headline tour in the country in over a decade, it’s rare chance to catch the high profile producer, DJ, label head and visionary playing extended sets in such a setting.
