Subliminal Records boss Erick Morillo concerned fans last month following a run of missed gigs followed by this Facebook status.
In a revealing interview with London festival SW4, which he headlines on Sunday 25th August, he has made it clear that he is going to be coming back better than ever.
"I have a very addictive personality" he told the official festival website, "and I can’t go half way. I’m two speeds; I’m off or I’m fully on. So I realise now that my answer is to be sober. The partying, that whole thing, it’s a thing of the past now. I am taking care of myself; mind, body and soul. I’m talking to a psychologist and getting everything ready."
The in depth interview also touches on the house revival springing from London and the UK, and sees the house music pioneer asserting that his own material will speak to this emerging crowd:
"Like all these kids are trying to do what we were doing back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. All these kids are trying to do what we do best so we’ve got a bunch of records like that coming out on Subliminal."
