One Records once again stay true to their top quality ethos as they welcome back firm family member and Desolat favourite Hector, with his ‘Stoned Raiders EP’ - a journey into the deep and hypnotic, featuring killer remixes from the recently reunited H Foundation, young one to watch Samu.l and a digital only remix from Italian youngster Peter JD.
Originally from Guadalajara in Mexico, Hector Murillo followed his musical passions to London where he worked at the famous Phonica record store. Now living in the electronic capital of the world, Berlin, the talented DJ and producer has become one of the biggest names on the scene. After a string of releases and remixes on high profile labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Mobilee, Horizontal, Tsuba, Saved Records, Get Physical and Circus Company, Hector found his way into Loco Dice’s Desolat crew. As well as being part of Desolat, Hector is a firm member of the One Records camp – holding a close friendship with both label bosses Subb-an and Adam Shelton.
For his second EP on the imprint Hector delivers ‘Stoned Raiders’ a dark and trippy ride into late night territory – packing plenty of groove and aimed straight at the dancefloor, with an alternative dub version rounding off the A-side.
Over on the flip, heroes of the West Coast U.S house scene and frequent names on the famous Siesta Records, Hipp-E and Halo aka H Foundation make their first appearance on the label with their remix. A heavy-duty dance floor monster, effortlessly raw with sharp kicks and industrial horns, there’s no doubt this will do some damage, with it’s sonic madness and trippy FX.
Birmingham’s rising star Samu.l is back on the label since his huge hit ‘Innocent’ was released earlier in the year. His remix is deep and smooth yet powerfully driving, subtly building to kick in with dark haunting stabs in the final minutes and creating a whole new twist.
Last on remix duty is another familiar name in the One Records camp, Peter JD. He adds his classic touch, taking us on a journey into the atmospheric with ounces of warmth and the wonderfully layered synth patterns.
