1. Product Details

Born and raised in South London Hector Plimmer is a multi-faceted producer composer and DJ whose sound is drenched in tribal rhythms and beautifully crafted bass. Influenced by beat-makers like Flying Lotus and Theo Parrish but with the subtleties of the classic Metalheadz era drum and bass his second album Next To Nothing is released on 25th October 2019. The album features guests Ego Ella May Emma-Jean Thackray Andrew Ashong Pie Eye Collective and Alexa Harley. After featuring on Brownswood Bubblers 11 curated by Gilles Peterson Hector proved his talent when he was selected as a winner of the PRS Steve Reid InNOVAtion award. At a performance at Sounds Of The Universe Record store Hector caught the attention of Alberts Favourites label heads Adam Scrimshire & Dave Koor. A conversation was started which led to the transfer of almost a whole albums worth of material and resulted in his debut full length record Sunshine. Sunshine was met with rapturous acclaim. The record went on to be awarded Gilles Petersons album of the week on his BBC 6 Music show and was championed by both Lauren Laverne and Tom Ravenscroft on the station as well as Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 2. Its success on the airwaves transcended to streaming with the inclusion in the top 50 viral US chart on Spotify. This album has been a real labour of love. I spent the most part of a year trying to make music I thought would be fitting to follow my last album whilst not actually knowing what that might sound like. Sunshine had been received way more positively than I had anticipated and although praise is a lovely thing it was the cause of much anxiety when the time came to start on this record. I put a lot of pressure on myself to produce music and kept going down routes that felt forced or just didnt click for me in hindsight I realise this was me making music not for myself but for what I imagined other people might want to hear. In a way Next to Nothing is my first real album Sunshine was more like a collection of four to five years worth of music compiled into the shape of one. This is my first dedicated attempt at creating a cohesive project something that shows who I am right now and what got me here. - Hector Plimmer. As a DJ Hector has a monthly slot on NTS radio.
