Biography

Hector “El Father” is one of the main exponents in the reggeaton genre, he could be considered the P Diddy or Dr. Dre of reggaeton. Despite his young age, Hector has had an extensive music career.

During the mid 90’s Hector came to fame as part of the duet Hector and Tito. Both became the first reggeaton artists to sell out a massive concert in Puerto Rico, opening the path to other artists such as Tego Calderon, Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, and Wisyn y Yandel. As a duet both captured the world’s attention and made reggeaton a popular genre, won important awards such as the Latin Billboard Award and reached the top of the charts in several countries. After 12 years of continuous success, Hector and Tito decided to go separate ways.

Hector, who is also Don Omar’s mentor and producer, has produced a variety of artists. In 2004 he founded his own record label GoldStar Music, and positioned his group TREBOL CLAN among audience’s favorites with over 100 thousand copies sold of Los Bacatranes, their first album under his label.

In 2005 he started his solo career debuting in Pasto, Colombia, in front of 60 thousand people. Several of his songs became big hits across Latin America and the U.S: “Noche de Travesuras”, “Los Rompe Discotecas” “Vamos pa la calle”, “Noche de Terror” and “Mirandonos” are some of them.
