Beta Hector's Derriere Shakin' R&B Mix

Beta Hector Derriere Shakin R'n'B Mix

"So, I approached Djouls with the concept of doing a Beta Hector mixtape for Paris DJs to celebrate the 7 inch I have coming out on HHV with Quantic, and he discovered that I play upright bass in Vintage Soul / R&B band Derriere. He told me he was really interested in this scene and that Paris DJs could use an R&B mixtape. Well I guess it's a good job that I've been stocking up on this kind of music as well as all the other genres that I like to put into my DJ sets… Of course I had to oblige, so here's my 100% vinyl selection of timeless gems that will take you back almost sixty years. I could bang on about how amazing these records still sound, how they were the precursor for soul, funk and rock music, and how I've included some absolute blues and soul legends in this fine selection, but it's probably best if we just let your ears and your heart decide for you. Enjoy!" - Beta Hector

(MP3 Podcast on 2011-03-24

Bassist, producer and DJ Simon Hill aka Beta Hector is our special guest this week with a groovy' R&B mix!
He was the man behind the superb funk and soul Baby Charles album - on Record Kicks. We had Grant Phabao rework one of his tracks into reggae, you can still download it here.

He's the bass player in uprising band Derrière, a hot rhythm and blues band who's 2nd single is produced and mixed by our recent guests DJ Format and Simon James of The Simonsound, you can check their mix here.
As Beta Hector he's recently released a stunning Sunbeam Insulin electronic soul long player (on Tru Thoughts Recordings), followed just last week by a limited 7 inch with the exclusive Boi Peixe Theme, a killer laidback afro-latin groover - you can buy it here and there are 300 copies only.

We haven't even talked about the remixes he's putting out there but you gotta try finding his rework of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On... Well there's just so much eclectic creativity in this Beta Hector guy with that we couldn't resist on challenging him with a theme for a mix, and the man delivered the goods right on point. In your face hot & burnin' derrière-shakin' R'n'B!!
