Tonight, two titans of the remix will be tag-teaming the decks to rock our sacred dancefloor. Hex Hector, a native of Washington Heights, burst on the scene in the early 90s with a “midnight jazz” version of Sun, Moon & Star’s “Don’t Sell Out”, then went on to put out numerous unmistakable official reworks including Deborah Cox “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here” and Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart”. He’s also been commissioned for work by Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Tina Turner, Donna Summer, Ricky Martin and N’Sync. His work with Melanie C. (Spice Girls) earned him a Grammy for Remixer of the Year.
Jason Ojeda grew up in a Long Island family that ran a sound and lights business, which landed him behind the decks by the time he was 9 and holding down club residencies by 15. He started his remix career when he was asked to work on a Robin S. track, and eventually grew his repertoire to include a club favorite take on Abigail’s “You Set Me Free”. Since then he’s been brought on to put his spin tracks by Junior Vazquez, Alcazar and DJ Skribble.
Ojeda and Hector will be taking to Cielo’s decks along with the Dominican-born and Bronx-raised Les Carbonnell, who runs the Respect The Circle podcast and recently put out the LP Konkrete. An RSVP means that entry is free all night, so you really have no excuse to miss this one.
