Dj Set: Hector Romero
A natural progression within the Def Mix camp gave Hector Romero his most recent business opportunity as a participating partner in Satoshi Tomiie’s upstart imprint SAW.RECORDINGS.
Picture the summer 1983…In the Bronx, NY a block party, also known as a street jam, is in full effect. A 13 year old kid steps in front of the turntables and starts playing a combination of Latin, House and Hip Hop music. The crowd goes wild and quickly the neighborhood nicknames the young kid ‘Baby Hec’ Romero. As his notoriety and age grows, he finds himself playing at the premier Latin Dance Club ‘La Mirage’, and doing nights at the hippest street club the ‘Devils Nest’. The very same club where friend Louie Vega got his start. Soon after that, "Baby Hec" Romero (a name that has taken years to shed) found himself DJ-ing at some of New York City’s legendary clubs and underground spots such as Save the Robots, The Red Zone, famed Palladium, and the Roxy.
In 1994, Judy Weinstein recruited Hector Romero to work at Def Mix Productions and assist in the creation of Definity Records, an imprint Weinstein and partner David Morales was working on launching. Hector found he was not as interested in Remixing or Producing but he loved the balance between the creative DJ and the businessman. A&R, and working on the business end of Music, was a better fit. Weinstein took him under her wing and taught him the technique of good business management. The longtime business arrangement garnered him the position of Label Manager of Definity Records the Def Mix imprint.
Romero has found a balance by playing records at spots such as Filter 14 in NYC, Stereo in Montreal, Locomia in Portugal, and in other clubs around the globe. Mixing different types of music together is his "sound" and it is this mixture that has again increased his celebrity with the Club Culture throughout major European Cities, Canada, and the USA.
A natural progression within the Def Mix camp gave Hector Romero his most recent business opportunity as a participating partner in Satoshi Tomiie’s upstart imprint SAW.RECORDINGS. Weinstein, also an investor and a believer in the duo team, is working closely with Romero to strengthen his profile as a DJ through the Def Mix Tours. With Romero’s business savvy, the success of Tomiie & Romero’s dream company is insured. As one of the creative forces of SAW, Hector brings to the team his experience as label manager, and his A&R and negotiation abilities.
As a DJ, Hector Romero continues to play on weekends and will be joining the others at Def Mix in a Spring through Fall 2002 world tour.
We value the sound all the way.
The Room26 project was born in Rome by a group of entrepreneurs who share a long friendship, a great love for music, dance, art and long national and international experiences in musical and artistic entertainment.
The Idea was immediately creating something that did not exist in Rome, gathering the best around the world by adding passions, visions, and obsessions.
