At a performance at ‘Sounds Of The Universe’ Record store, Hector caught the attention of Alberts Favourites label heads Adam Scrimshire & Dave Koor. A conversation was started which led to the transfer of almost a whole records worth of material which eventually resulted in ‘Sunshine’
In the same way groups like Portishead and Leftfield captured a moment in time, Hector’s work, although influenced by them, is also drenched in tribal rhythms and beautifully crafted bass. Melodies weave and shift to make way for glorious synths or vocal lines. Clearly influenced by beat-makers like Flying Lotus and Theo Parrish, but with the subtleties of the classic Metalheadz era Drum and Bass, this album will definitely leave you wanting more.

The record went on to be awarded Gilles Peterson’s album of the week on his BBC 6Music show and was championed by both Lauren Laverne and Tom Ravenscroft on the station as well as Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 2. Its success on the airwaves transcended to streaming with the inclusion in the top 50 viral US chart on Spotify.
