Effortlessly balancing his will to experiment with a commitment to the founding spirit of house, Hector has rapidly established himself as one of the most exciting young producers and DJs on the planet. From Fabric London over to Playa Del Carmen via Ibiza back to his current home base of Berlin, mixing up styles and moods but always focused firmly on the dancefloor’s needs and desires, his selections nod to house music’s past but engage fully with its future; his sets have energy, precision and soul.
Hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Hector took to the decks at the age of 16 after experiencing sets by visiting European DJs. Inspired by the likes of Carl Craig, and Moodymann, he soon realized that his future lay in music. After a strong start with a residency at one of Mexico’s premier clubs, Hector headed to London and fell in love with city's unmatched music scene. Spinning during Ibiza’s summer season, he befriended Simon Rigg, head of Phonica Records - the nucleus of London’s house and techno community - and started working at the Soho store upon his return to the UK. Hector’s knowledge and infectious passion for cutting-edge music transformed him into one of the shop’s most recognizable faces, and he was the first producer to launch Phonica’s in-house label in 2009.
Fast forward several years and Hector has notched up a string of high profile releases including his breakthrough, "La Raza" for Dinky’s Horizontal imprint, the Piano Hispano EP with Pablo Cahn, and Hispanic Causing Panic for 8bit -- causing a stir among high profile DJs worldwide. He's clearly no slouch in the production department -- with additional releases on 20:20, Tsuba, Saved, and One. But it was his work for Mobilee, the defining Berlin imprint where Hector made his mark with "Got Fringe", a complex, stomping, vocal-fueled percussive pair of tracks that fuses slower house tempos with an irresistible Latin swing.
On Thursday, November 7th, Berlin house maven, Hector, returns to San Francisco for a special 4 hour set at BASE.
