South Londoner Hector Plimmer is a producer, drummer, DJ and graphic artist. He has steadily built a career bridging scenes and sounds, from beats to jazz, broken beat, house and techno, whilst at the same time honing a distinctive sound, balancing lovingly crafted low-end with precision engineered percussion and a knack for enticing melody and arrangements, recently described by Mixmag as “drowsy, introspective and almost otherworldly”. Here he performs with IndoJazz clarinet sensation Arun Ghosh, who fluidly incorporates jazz and South Asian influences.
