 djfutura writes: Morillo in good shape
Erick Morillo starts to understand that playing tribal house is just plain boring. This mix is pretty cool. Specially the part where he plays the Red Carpet - Alright, with the many acapellas. Does anyone know which version of red carpet he plays ? I think its the Brad Carter Version but not sure.

 p1oneer writes: imho
i dont like this mix very much,when morillo played his tribal mixes,he had perfect underground sound!But now his music is more "usual",but ofcourse he is master of djing,using accapellas and experementing with forgotten hits(funkytown) is great!

This one was a big surprise to me. I've never enjoyed his mixes before, but this was great apart from the fading out for the crowd. 8.5/10

I was pleasantly surprised byt this one also. Very creative and technically inspired, only losing pace towards the end. It went down an absolute blast with the crowd as can be heard, which I think is why I appreciated it so much the first time i listened to it. It doesn't have much home-listening longevity tho. Still one of the better mixes of the summer.

By the way it is the Brad Carter mix of Alright, with the breakdown looped a bit... it's probably a proper exclusive re-edit, come to think of it, as it's on Morillo's label.

 jboniniceo writes: mastery
I have to say this mix is off the charts. Morillo is definitely THE MASTER and this mix goes to prove it! HIP-HOP does not stand a chance in the mainstream USA once the public continues to hear performances such as this one. The Dawn of a NEW ERA in HOUSE MUSIC!

 bush writes:
Good mix this. Goes a bit overboard on the accapellas. The funkytown bit is the business.

 ferd writes: Morrillo WORKS IT!
I haven't even made it to Funkytown, Erick had me at Long Train Running. ("C'mon, Bart, the Coast Guard's covering the Doob!" -Homer Simpson)

This is a balls-to-the-wall PARTY mix, something I was starting to worry could be a lost art among the superDJs. I don't know that an EMixer has gotten the crowd (and... jesus, like, the WHOLE crowd) to sing along and COMMIT since the Murk boys did back at the WMC.

This is the sort of mix that DJs whip out for something like the WMC, when they get a chance to let their hair down and actually just have fun spinning (imagine!) for themselves and each other. It's tight, practiced, disgustingly "we're-not-worthy!" skillful, and totally interactive. No pretentious bullshit, no overblown DJ-bathroom-break remixes, practically built out of "moments", and steeped in plenty of (to quote Tong's EM intro) Reeee-Spect. The man, and the set, deserve nothing less.

Oh, yeah... sorry, bush, I come from the Junior Vasquez school of "THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS TOO MANY ACAPPELLAS!" (Only not-enough-backbeats with the variety to hold them up, which nobody can accuse Morrillo of!)

And, yes, I just made it to Funkytown... hooooooly sh*t this man owns my world.
