One year on from the unforgettable Vatos Locos showcase at The BPM Festival, Hector is set to launch his ‘VL’ label at the next edition of the festival in his home country of Mexico.
2015 has been one of Hector’s busiest to date. As well as a crazy touring schedule with appearances at major events worldwide, he has also shown consistency in the studio with a flow of releases and remixes for vinyl focused labels; Serkal, Moan, Overall Music, Spartacus and Mindblown. That aside, his biggest achievement was undoubtedly conquering the residency at Marco Carola’s Music On through the summer at Amnesia.
Fresh from this inspirational summer, and with a clear vision in his mind of what needs to be achieved to build on this success, there is no better time for Hector to launch his own label project to compliment his exciting party brand.
Through the VL label vehicle, Hector is able to shine a light on his own music and that of favourite DJ/producers and Vatos Locos crew members such as Chad Andrew, David Gtronic, Javier Carballo, Hanfry Martinez, Randall M, Pinto and Sece.
“Working at Phonica in my early years and coming from vinyl background, the most important thing for me in this industry is to be able to get the music heard in the way I feel most comfortable with. To have your own label and have total control over this is paramount for me. This is something that started organically and has developed naturally thanks to having a good crew who are all in it for the right reasons, no egos, just quality music and events. These guys are refreshingly talented and we all share the same vision, and I cannot wait for you to all hear the first release.” – Hector
