23/04/1994 Freedom including Guest DJ Erick Morillo

During 1994 and 1995 at ‘Freedom’ we booked a number of great guest DJs. I was lucky enough to play alongside Nick Warren (05/02/94), Pete Heller (12/11/1994), and Matthew Roberts (20/05/95). Erick Morillo’s gig was immense though; it was just as Reel II Reel were at the height and that pumping Strictly Rhythm sound that Morillo played hadn’t really been heard much. It was his first gig in Manchester. A few years ago, some ten years after the ‘Freedom’ gig, I met him in Glasgow and asked if he’d come and play another gig with me for the same fee as the first one; £200. He laughed.
