Saturday, March 5 – ERICK MORILLO ‘SUBLIMINAL SESSIONS’
Erick Morillo’s star-studded Subliminal Sessions residency at Marquee Las Vegas saw Paris and Nicky Hilton dancing behind the DJ booth last month, as well as a rousing performance by Shawnee Taylor, whose vocals are featured in his hit track “Live Your Life.” It’s no surprise that the dazzling, Tron-inspired, futuristic experience is so popular: it breaks all standards of clubbing. Erick is platinum-selling DJ, whose first dancefloor hit was in 1994 with Reel 2 Real’s ubiquitous “I Like To Move It.” Since then, he has developed a funky, soulful house sound, producing more hits, as well as remixes for Whitney Houston and Basement Jaxx, among others.
