Introducing... Beta Hector

Jupiter Mission, out as a free download on 8th August, is the first single from Beta Hector’s upcoming début solo album 'Sunbeam Insulin'. There is a real retro sci-fi feel, this single is the perfect introduction to the album, which reveals a shimmering mixture of heavy drums and psychedelic electronic sonics, soulful, bittersweet songs and soundtracks, with five vocalists including UK soul queen Dionne Charles and LA MC Shane Hunter.

Beta Hector is the solo project of Brighton based bassist, producer and DJ Simon Hill, a founder member of the erstwhile deep funk band Baby Charles who gained rave reviews in MOJO and Pitchfork for their debut album in 2008 and toured around Europe. With major radio play from Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1), several sessions for the BBC including Mark Lamarr (Radio 2) and the 6Music Funk & Soul Show, plus heavy international support, they burned brightly in the funk/soul renaissance of the 2000s.
