Subliminal Records is back. Yes, you read that right: the super-influential New York house and tech imprint is returning after a hiatus with some serious bang for your buck. And the pioneering label boss Erick Morillo couldn’t be more thrilled by what he has up his sleeve for summer 2015. “It’s going to be great music from house to techno – a little bit of everything,” he says. “We’re going to be releasing lots of records from different people of course, including the first release which is Erick Morillo feat. Harry Romero, called ‘The Restorer’. “I connected once again with the person who helped me launch the label back in 1997, so it’s fitting.”
Erick has several original productions and key collaborations in the works too, including ‘Something For Carl Cox’, a fun techno jam that Erick made for, well, guess who and another solo track called ‘Going To LA’. Additionally, there’s another new club track featuring Antranig called ‘It Ain’t Much’. But the biggest of the new material will be ‘Right Now’, an A-List collaboration with Hot Natured head honcho Jamie Jones. He’s putting the finishing touches to that one as we speak.
The other big news is that Subliminal will be working with some of the most cutting-edge producers in electronic music to remix the cream of the classic Subliminal catalogue. Says Erick: “I’m super-excited to be working with some of the best remixers in the industry to bring our classics to the new generation!”
“In the past, we sometimes went for quantity as much as quality but now we’re only focusing on quality releases, whatever the genre,” adds Erick. “This time, I can promise you that all our output will be ridiculous. House records with good drops don’t seem to exist any more – its either deep house, progressive house or tech house and I want to bring that real house back – to where it used to be.” Stay tuned.
