Womb EP by Hector
Decay Records returns with a new release from Hector, entitled the Womb EP and accompanied by remixes from The Mole and Dan Farserelli.
Mexican producer and DJ Hector’s career has been on a meteoric rise for some time now with his material being snapped up for many leading imprints in the industry such as Leftroom, Tsuba, Desolat and Mobilee. The Barcelona based artist also maintains a heavy touring schedule taking him across the globe to hot spots across Europe and the United States and recently launched his own VL Recordings imprint to critical acclaim, here though we see him back on the rising Decay Records imprint out of the UK with some fresh new material.
Up first is the original mix of ‘Womb’ which takes on a slowly brooding percussive feel via murky drum hits, thundering sub bass tones, swirling vocal murmurs and bubbling dub echoes. The Mole steps up to rework ‘Womb’ next and typical fashion the Canadian artist delivers an entirely unique take on things with atmospheric field recordings, intricately evolving synth layers, crunchy percussion and the originals infectious sub bass hook making for a refreshing listen.
Londoner Dan Farserelli reshapes ‘Womb’ next, taking things in a slightly different direction with swinging low-slung drums, snaking sub bass grooves and hypnotic chords fluttering away in the depths of the record. Lastly to round off the package is Hector’s second original ‘Da Morning After’, which as the name would suggest takes on a hypnotic after hours feels with ethereal pad swells and a raw rhythmic drive.
