Hector launches his own label: VL

The Mexican techno titan is finally collating his sound with the launch of his own imprint.

Forewarned is forearmed. In August just past, Hector sat down with us to talk about the Ibiza season, his vision of the electronic scene and the upcoming plans he was preparing for the winter months. It was in that moment when he explained to us the meaning of Vatos Locos (besides the clear hint to movie Blood In Blood Out), a project which was born as a showcase at January's BPM Festival and has since achieved incredible success.

The most important thing for me in this industry is to be able to get the music heard in the way I feel most comfortable with.” Says the artist. Now, the party brand is turning into a fully fledged record label and, coming back to its roots, Hector will delight the 2016 BPM Festival attendees with the official launch of VL on the 17th of January at Canibal Royal. Next to him, the rest of the crew members, Chad Andrew, David Gtronic, Javier Carballo, Hanfry Martinez, Randall M, Pinto and Sece who, together, will put all their energy to celebrate another unforgettable evening to welcome the imprint as it deserves.

It is clear that Hector is one of those all-rounder artists who cannot stand still. You could say he was a record consultant to some of the scene's biggest stars at London's legendary Phonica Records store before he became the king of many a UK club booth, Music On resident for two consecutive years, producer and now a label boss. We can't wait to hear the first release!
