Hector Merida first gained notoriety as a producer/remixer under the alias Huggie in the Early-Nineties first appearing on the "Believe" compilation on X-Sight Records alongside well-respected artists of time, such as Kelly Reverb, Adam X, T-lOOO, and Frankie Bones. More recently he has worked with Richard "Merlyn" Martin as Martin Merida, various remixes and ultimately concentrating on his solo projects.
As 2012 draws to a close he feels that his music has elevated itself and is a bit more intelligent than the usual floor bangers. It has grown up and he is growing with it. After 27 years of house & techno music, Hector Merida still kindles a fire for the art form that burns brighter than even the most enthusiastic young up & comer..
And with that we are proud to announce his first artist album, released on the dawn of the new year, 9 emotive AND effective selections.. from the disco inspired, funk fueled Discotheque, the hybrid house sound of Gaia, to more deeper house numbers such as Spring Love & Summer Love..
You will even find a sprinkling of downbeat chill & groovin soul epics such as Melancoly Vortex & Peace With You.. and some Drum & Bass & breaks with Uncanny Love & Timeless..
Wow is all we can say.. pure quality spanning every genre, from start to finish..
