California producer and DJ Hector Moralez has worked his way up through the ranks and is now a global house star. He’s worked in record stores, collected vinyl and has loved everything from latin to soul to funk all his life, releasing Eps and albums on Music For Freaks, Robsoul, Apollonia (with Chris Carrier) and more besides. His sound knows no boundaries and here comes in fresh house form.

‘Scrambled Rhythms’ is a perfectly loop cut with nebulous synth lines twitching and sparking about with rinsed out drums and a muted acid line. A reverb rich vocal adds a human element but really this is a physical, booty shaking house cut aimed surely at the floor.

The infectious ‘Ten 30 One 33’ is a more subdued cut that bounces along a deep down groove with air hi hats and a bobbing bassline that really gets under your skin. Simple but effective club music with rainy melodies, it’s another great effort.

The first remix is by Visionquest and 2020 Vision associate Tucillo, who has been churning out chart topping tech for a while now. His refreshing take on ‘Scrambled Rhythms’ is busier and more textured than the original. The track ducks and dives with smeary synth stabs and party starting vocals all buried within the groove.

Then it is to I’m A House Gangster label boss and Chi town house hero DJ Sneak. He flips ‘Ten 30 One 33’ into a busy, no messing jackathon with restless percussion and snappy drums all demanding you dance.

This is a fulsome house package with four different cuts all equally likely to make their mark on the house community.
