Rising from Oakland, California and fast becoming one of
house music’s elite, Hector Moralez has paid his dues by
working tirelessly from the bottom up. In demand at clubs
and events throughout the world. Hector Moralez is renowned
for his intelligent and soul awakening house music.
Hector's ambitions began at an early age of 17, where he
would spend hours practicing on his decks with the vinyl he
had just worked hard for at the infamous Primal Records. The
knowledge gained from his experiences at Primal together
with a long list of friends and contacts, allowed Hector to
develop what has become his resourceful and creative sound.
Whether in the studio or performing live behind the decks,
Hector's love, passion and energy is clear to see. His sounds
take influence from Latin, jazz, funk, hip hop and soul and
are of course sewn together with his apparent grooving bass
lines and solid fat beats.
Hector’s character, hard work and innovative ability has given
him a prominent standing in the house music scene, leading
him to become one of the most sought after artists. Also
forming the production phenomenon “Fries and Bridges” with
occasional partner, Phil Weeks [Paris].
Releases from Hector have enhanced highly respected labels
such as Music For Freaks, Nightshift, Detour, Vista, Brique
Rouge, Doubledown, Lowdown Music and Robsoul. These
popular works have lead to further demand with new
releases due out throughout 2013 on Circus Recordings,
Apollonia, Restricted Access, DJ Sneak Classics, Magnetic,
Pacha Recordings and Robsoul. As well as managing and
producing on his own distinguished underground labels,
Minority Music & The Factory.
