At the end of 2019 Hector Plimmer released his second album, Next To Nothing, to huge love and support from Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Tom Ravenscroft and many more. Support across BBC Radio 6 Music led single Somebody Else to four weeks on their playlist. New single Joyfulness is a standout album track that has already begun racking up radio play and attention. Featuring the effortless and uplifting vocal performance of a long-time Hector Plimmer collaborator, Alexa Harley. Joyfulness sounds exactly how the title suggests, filled with peace and joy. 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 additional guests Ego Ella May, Emma-Jean Thackray, Andrew Ashong and Pie Eye Collective. 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 Albert's Favourites' label heads Adam Scrimshire & Dave Koor. A conversation was started which led to the transfer of almost a whole album's 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 Peterson's 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. As a DJ Hector has a monthly slot on NTS radio. He has played alongside the likes of Gilles Peterson, Kutmah, Alexander Nut, MNDSGN, Onra, Dego, Kaidi, Max Graef & Glenn Astro; Hector finds himself in the good company of those talented selectors who play genres across the spectrum of Hip-hop, Beats, Funk, Soul, Disco, Afro-beat, House and Jazz. Last year saw the launch of his live performances. Flanked by Dave Koor and Tim Doyle on keys and percussion, with Vocalist And Is Phi heading up the quartet. Recent performances have included supporting Nightmares on Wax, Amp Fiddler, Yussef Dayes and Flako. Key festival performances include Glastonbury, The Great Escape and Brainchild.
