Success can take its toll. Especially in the music industry wherein the excesses of life are offered to the industry’s stars at every corner. This is why we were saddened to hear that esteemed DJ and producer Erick Morillo had an eventful start to the summer after having to cut short a gig in Boston’s Ocean Club after he was carried from the DJ booth in no fit state to perform.
After much hype surrounding his appearance at the US nightspot with revellers reportedly attending from across the state the evening appears to be far removed from what any fans of Erick were expecting as he took to the decks in such a clearly disorientated state that rumors quickly spread through the crowd that he wouldn’t be able to play the nights scheduled set.
Such talk appeared to have been quickly dispelled as Morillo proceded to play his trademark latin house sound for around 45 minutes before his condition rapidly deteriorated as he abruptly staggered away from the decks seeking assistance. The music was left on loop and suddenly the nights main attraction was nowhere in sight. Fortunately for the crowd local DJ Bamboora quickly rushed to the decks to continue the nights music as Morillo was assisted to the livery hotly pursued by his manager.
With fans disappointed after Erick’s performance there was strong speculation that the DJ was heavily intoxicated with a variety of different drugs. With no further word on his offical condition here at Data Transmission we’d like to wish him the best and hope that he gets any further help that he needs.
