While most legendary dj/producers are known for one specific genre, Hex Hector is that rare talent whose 20 year plus career has encompassed the entire gamut of dance music. He grew up in New York City during its dance music glory days, taking in the sounds of legendary spots like Paradise Garage, The Funhouse and The Loft. In the early part of his career he was the dj at the China Club in NYC on Monday nights, playing mainstream dance tunes to New York’s most celebrated nightcrawlers. From there he gained residencies at famous 90’s clubs like Palladium, Tunnel and Limelight.
In the mid-90’s he shifted into producer mode. Working with stars like Madonna, Toni Braxton and, Deborah Cox, he created a crossover dance sound that dominated pop radio for many years. His efforts culminated in the remix of “Waiting For Tonight” by Jennifer Lopez, earning him a grammy award in 2001 for remixer of the year.
Currently his signature sound has shifted to a more global, soulful house sound. In New York City, which is one of the home bases for this more evolved genre of dance music, Hex has emerged as one of the most respected dj’s in soulful house clubs like Cielo and Santos and is a favorite at the world-renowned Stereo Club in Montreal.
