From his part in the Reel to Real 80’s classic ‘I Like To Move It’ to donning his superior club insight to British newspaper The Sun, Erick Morillo has remained an integral part of what makes modern House music exciting. Under the guise of Subliminal Records and off the back of another steady residency at Pacha Ibiza for 2011, the New Year promised further forceful floor play with the announcement of his latest project alongside longstanding label family Jose Nunez and Harry Romero as Sympho Nympho. In an extension of his groundbreaking approach to larger-than-life club outings, British X Factor winner turned Syco superstar Alexandra Burke joins the cast of Subliminal’s finest for an epic outing of big room beats and swelling synth play for one of the New Year’s loudest premieres to date. With her well-tuned vocal stylings being lapped up by millions following the tracks exclusive preview on Pete Tong’s essential selection, this fitting crossover of British pop and global House antics suggests Morillo’s unique hold on the genre has not slipped over the past decade.
‘Elephant’ is released March 11th.
