House DJ, part of the second wave of NY/NJ House doods in the 90s. Owner of Subliminal Records, one of the biggest House labels. Been in the biz for 30 years.

But this is not all that surprising. Dude was kind of a douche in real life (yes, I've met him).

THE Erick Morillo? Well what the f*ck are we gonna do now?!?
 
2020-08-07 1:41:57 PM  
I thought he was the guy from Rage Against the Machine.

Ishkur: Dude was kind of a douche in real life (yes, I've met him).


Comments I've read elsewhere are a bit harsher.  Apparently he has a sobriety problem too.

Oh well, add him to the pile with Datsik and Gaslamp Killer.

Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat.

Fatboy Slim has been putting out a weekly hour long Lockdown Mixtape every Friday for the last 20 weeks, and they are bangin'. Everything helps in these crazy times...

I've never known a DJ that didn't.

You get into the dj game because you're paid in drugs at first.

Not every DJ has a marketing department that can come up with a snappy name like DaftMau5 and create a stylish bucket they can wear on their head.

I thought being a creepy perv was the job description for DJ?

I wonder how that guy is still alive sometimes. He looks like a zombie.

I had him on my card!  I also had Steve Lemley, Ross Hagen, and Bobson Dugnutt.

In the early 90s, there was this Chicago DJ named Tim "Spinnin'" Schulmer.  Adding  the Spinnin' part didn't improve the Tim Schulmer part.

Sorry to disappoint you, but Carl Cox was involved in a bit of a fiasco involving a "charity" whose purpose was to raise money for their tour managers.

My God, thank you!!!!

Semi-related, Will Smith has been putting out some mellow lo-fi hip hop mixes on his YT channel, in case anyone's interested in that.

/Will Smith's a good guy.

Also, I detest this "aaaawww, so-and-so has been shown to be a creepy predator, guess we can't listen to his stuff anymore" attitude. Understandable, but... no. Name, shame, and shun with extreme prejudice.

/Is it really THAT hard to not be a creepy predator, men?

No, they pay money for drugs to listen to that.

Show of hands. How many people clicked just to find out who or what an Erick Morillo is?
 
2020-08-07 4:31:57 PM  
This may be a hidden blessing. Now that he's out of the DJ game he can get a real job in the music industry, like tambourine player or groupie wrangler. Or maybe he can be the guy who fills up the pool with vomit...
 
2020-08-07 4:56:51 PM  
"Morillo has consistently denied the accusations, but following a rape kit that tested positive for his DNA, he reportedly turned himself in with his attorney. "

Yeah, he really got metooed there.

Pressing "Play" doesn't require a lot of coordinated motor function.

Okay, another rapist. I've got enough guilt on my ledger from all the Weinstein movies I've bought.

No, I'm trying to keep the numbers down.

I'd prefer the number was zero, but the studios are disgustingly good at keeping these things under wraps for years, long after you've purchased the series collection of The Cosby Show, Bryan Singer's X-Men movies, and a small assortment of Kevin Spacey films.
