Influenced by Detroit greats the likes of Carl Craig, Moodymann and his now-friend Stacey Pullen, Vatos Locos head-honcho Hector learned how to DJ at the tender age of 16, soon getting the opportunity of a lifetime while working at the iconic Phonica record shop in London. There he met Loco Dice and Anja Schneider, and secured a spot on their labels (Desolat and mobilee respectively), the perfect launching pad to a career that has seen not stop once since.
He honed his craft as a track selector in the years to follow, eventually launching the Vatos Locos project during BPM Festival, organizing a no-holds-barred party showcasing a selection of quality underrated artists from his home country. Since then he has secured a residency at Marco Carola’s Music On parties at Amnesia Ibiza, has played alongside Detroit Techno legend Stacey Pullen and has gone on to perform at some of the most coveted festivals and clubs in the world, including Time Warp, fabric London, Womb Tokyo, Awakenings, Movement Detroit, New York’s Output and Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles.
It is at Sound that he returns on Friday, September 8th, as part of the Hollywood club’s Framework series that features the most cutting-edge acts in house, tech house, deep house and techno.
We have teamed up with Sound Nightclub to give away a pair of GA tickets to this night, as well as two signed copies of X: 10 Years Of BPM CD from Vatos Locos boss Hector! To enter, simply follow the instructions in the widget below.
