Born and raised in South London, Hector Plimmer, a designer, producer and DJ, has been making some considerable waves over the past year. Following up an appearance on the most recent Gilles Peterson Brownswood Bubblers compilation, Hector proved his talent when he was selected as the winner of the PRS Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award.
His newest album Sunshine under Albert’s Favourites was conceived when the label approached Hector after a live performance at the “Sounds of the Universe.” As the labels puts it:
Previously released work was mixed in with new unfinished ideas, and as we progressed we realized that there was already a good albums worth of material to work with. “It represents (in no particular order) my musical journey over the past 4 or so years, some of which may never have seen the light of day. All of the music in this album has come about as organically as possible, from tapping a light bulb I was changing to finding a sweet sounding Kalimba at Raw Material in Brixton and recording it on my phone (shout out to Miles laughing in the background of ‘Kalimba 2’).”
