01 Jan 2012: Summadayze, Melbourne
It was a pretty long flight to Australia and upon landing there was no time rest as we made our way over to Melbourne. This was the beginning of a three day tour called Summadayze festival. What an amazing line up! We were sharing the stage this afternoon with Snoop Dog, Calvin Harris, Pendulum, Markus Shultz just to name a few. I’m sure you’ll agree it was pedigree of the highest order. Erick rocked up to the stage and the crowd let out a huge roar. There were so many pretty girls in this crowd. Just take look for yourself at the photos. Our boy Marco from Those Usual Suspects stopped by to say hello. If you don’t know, he made that huge record “walking alone”, with Dirty South! What an amazing performance by Erick and from the looks of this crowd they agree!! Special thanks to all that showed up!
02 Jan 2012: Summadayze, Gold Coast
Next stop Gold Coast and day two of our Summadayze tour. We were playing a bit later in the evening. So we had a few hours to catch some of other performances, and let me tell ya there were some great acts! Calvin Harris was killing it dropping his huge hit “Feel So Close”! The crowd were going CRAZY! I mean they always go crazy for a big record, but this time they were going, CRAZY! They must be playing that on the radio over here, the whole place knew that beat. Next up Subliminal Records’ own Erick Morillo! The energy was thru the roof this evening! Erick was playing so many new records and I just cant get over how the crowd was reacting. Erick was in great spirits! There are quite a few bangers due to drop on Subliminal from Erick, Eddie T, Carl Kennedy, Skin and more. Erick jumped on a security guy’s shoulder and took a picture with this energetic crowd! It was so funny! Erick even played a bootleg of Adele smash hit “Someone Like You” The crowd held their lighters in the air. What a sight and what an amazing way to end the evening. Not like me, but I was emotional man. People need this kind of healing in their lives. Only good vibrations from the music, man.
03 Jan 2012: Summadayze, Perth
Two down and one to go. I was feeling pretty good. Touring can take a lot of energy out of you, with not much sleeping and traveling almost constantly, but Australia has good warm energy this time of year. We made our way to Perth and this was the conclusion to this amazing Summadayze tour. As I walked unto the stage, Markus Shultz had the crowd going in a frenzy! He passed the reigns over to Erick Morillo who just smashed it! Erick played his big record “Elephant”, the new joint with UK singer Alexandra Burke, keep your ears open for this record. I can’t believe that I even saw the Colombian flag in the audience! I wonder if it’s the same flag in all the shows? LOL. It sure does get around. Erick has some loyal fans all over the world. My boy Detroit house hustler Seth Troxler stopped by to say hello and take a peak at the madness! Have to say Erick was in great spirits again and he showed this crowd 2012 will be a very big year for Subliminal! Special thanks to Brett, Emily and the whole entire family of Future Entertainment for putting together one heck of a festival! Austraaaaaaaaaaliiiia, we cant wait to be back!!!!!!!! Love you.
