We’re not pleased or excited about having to report this, because Netmix considers DJ, Producer, Subliminal Records founder and Pacha New York co-owner, Erick Morillo a friend. However, since we are a blog that reports on DJ culture, everyone gets equal treatment.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s positive or negative. We’d expect the same treatment and have certainly gotten some dings over the years ourselves. No one likes having to report these things, but that’s the nature of the business we’re in.
That being said, we have to tell you that Mr. Morillo was arrested at Glasgow Airport in Scotland for possession of cocaine. He’s pled not guilt and was released and will have to return to Scotland to face the judge in March. We’re hoping that doesn’t impact his plans for Miami’s Winter Music Conference, where he’s been a staple for many, many years.
Morillo was on his way to Glasgow from Amsterdam to play the Colours party at The Arches, when he was pinched by customs for holding. He spent the night in jail and the party’s promoters were forced to offer refunds to anyone who wasn’t satisfied with the night’s DJ program.
The international club circuit is highly demanding. The abundance of alcohol and recreational drugs in that environment is a given. It’s difficult for anyone who lives that lifestyle to steer clear of temptation, but it’s not impossible. It all depends on how you want to live your life. We hope that Mr. Morillo, if found guilty of the charge, will come to some personal realizations and take some steps to stay healthy.
