Governors Island has been one of the premier summer destinations for electronic music events in New York City, but Pacha NYC will be bringing the party to another location all season long. La Marina has been dubbed “New York’s hottest new outdoor venue” and will host DJs on the Hudson River beginning on June 1st with an unveiling from Erick Morillo. Also scheduled to perform at the brand new waterfront venue is Boris (June 22nd), and more announcements for summer 2013 are due to come soon.
While they’ve ditched the moniker, the trio known as Sympho Nympho have released “The Porno” as the follow up to “Conga Lust.” Getting explicit with an aptly titled figurative late night track, Erick Morillo returns with Harry Romero and Jose Nunez to deliver a sexy rolling beat with provocative samplings. A journey through a dance floor orgasm, “The Porno” offers the aura that has defined Subliminal‘s risqué afterhours attitude.
Only days after The New York Times profiled some of the big changes going on in Ibiza this summer (particularly Pacha’s resistance to skyrocketing superstar DJ fees), the Cipriani hospitality group is announcing some exciting new additions to the nightlife landscape on the Balearic Islands this summer. Giuseppe Cipriani, along with former Pacha programming directors Danny Whittle and Mark Netto, will be opening Bomba Ibiza during the week of the International Music Summit on May 22nd.
NYC-based duo Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano have teamed up with Erick Morillo, Harry Romero and Jose Nunez, to create the new track “Jungle Blood,” reputed with five times the big room punch. The Subliminal Records collaboration joins electro-heavyweights to generate a tribal anthem with a pounding drum beat and twisting synths. Heard on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Radio #031, the deep grooves and fiery sound will be sure to make an ample impression on this year’s festival circuit.

Before taking his Subliminal squad to Miami’s Shelborne Pool next month, Erick Morillo has brought them together in the studio. Morillo, Harry Romero, and Jose Nunez — collectively known as Sypmho Nypmho — conjured a club beat for who else, but first lady Shawnee Taylor. “My Melody” serves as the follow up to October’s “Love In Me,” another holy matrimony within camp Subliminal. The latest offering from Morillo and his musical army strikes resemblance to classics like “Live Your Life” and “Stronger,” so take it on for size as the perfect fit for springtime club-goers.

RPM announced today the long-awaited Erick Morillo and Subliminal Records show at the Shelborne Pool on Thursday, March 21. This party, along with RPM’s MixMash Pool Party with Laidback Luke and Friends at the National Miami, is going to be one of the many events worth checking out during Miami Music Week. It’s a perfect venue and show to warm-up with some pool-ready techy beats if you’re heading to Ultra Music Festival (or even if you’re just enjoying the parties). Don’t miss it.

Thanksgiving Eve is the homely cousin of New Year’s Eve, but that hasn’t stopped the city that never sleeps from stepping into bed with her once a year. Rarely one to argue with tradition, and knowing that a 7-hour back-to-back set meant I wouldn’t be leaving Pacha until the sun came up, I spent most of Wednesday evening napping in preparation for the early morning ahead of me.
Legendary DJ/producer Erick Morillo has certainly seen his fair share of Thanksgiving Eves, having shared last year’s affair with Danny Tenaglia. With a career spanning over two decades, Morillo has racked up a series of chart-topping singles, a piece of the Pacha NYC ownership pie, and an eponymously titled street sign, “Erick Morillo Way,” in his hometown. Although Morillo’s successes are being obscured — as is the case for many legends — by the new “electronic pop music” climate, his set with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano reminded me of the emerging failures of a system that privileges serial producers over quality DJs.
