The International DJ who made “I Like to Move It,” Erick Morillo
Two of dance music’s biggest house DJs, Kryder and Erick Morillo, team up to bring their new high energy-fast paced single, Waves. We’ve featured Waves on rBeatzRadio this week, and it’s here to stay thanks to votes from YOU, the listener. We write about the most popular songs on rBeatzRadio, and here’s one of them.
The song has a crescendo feel lead by Balearic guitar plucks. The anticipation is cinematic and subtle, keeping the energy dynamic and the vibe mesmerizing. There is also another worldly feel to the melody, giving me a sense of travel being in a different part of the world than I am now.
Erick Morillo is a Colombian-American DJ and a legend in the game. He’s been a professional DJ for over 30 years. At the beginning of his career, Morillo became more well known in the Latin community. He collaborated with Latin reggae star El General back in 1991, on their platinum hit single, Muevelo. El General was known by some as the father of “Reggae En Español.” He started moving more towards house music after meeting Louie Vega, and introduced him to his new label, Strictly Rhythm.
In 1994, Erick Morillo teamed up with The Mad Stuntman to form the group, Real 2 Real. Together they created the internationally renowned hit, I Like to Move It, which was released on Strictly Rhythm. The song launched Erick into the spotlight.
In 1997, Erick teamed up with his fellow DJs/ producers José Nunez, Harry Choo Choo Romero, Carlos Sosa (aka DJ Sneak) to create their own label, Subliminal Records.
Kryder is an English DJ known for his prowess in the house genre and his leadership as the owner of two labels, Sosumi Records & Cartel Records.
