DescriptionHector Merida grew up in Los Angeles and began DJing back in 1985, inspired by tracks like "Clear" by Cybotron (Juan Atkins), "The Chase" by Todd Terry, "French Kiss" by Lil Louis, "The Whistle Song" by Frankie Knuckles.. He just knew that techno and house were loves from the start and its been like that to this day.
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..
