During last week’s IMS Ibiza conference, Erick Morillo took the opportunity to shed light upon his addiction to the horse tranquilizer drug, Ketamine.
During the interview, the veteran DJ spoke at length with Pete Tong on just how deep into the void he fell, the mental and physical toll the drug took on him and his long road to recovery.
“At one point, I couldn’t even urinate. Every time I tried, it would be stuck and the pain meant I had to go to hospital where they put me to sleep. When I woke up, they had slashed some of my arm off because it was so infected from putting ketamine in it.”
Morillo also touched upon his path toward the heavy drug, concluding that it was mainly ego and jealousy towards younger, more successful DJs that lead him to his addiction.
