Hectik Rivero began his musical career at the age of seven, playing drums and bass guitar. Born and raised in Miami he was influenced by Miami Bass and in 1998 he began his DJ career playing breaks, spinning at house parties and small local clubs. Then, in 2000 house music engulfed him. He recalls being amazed the first time he heard House playing at a club. “It was the groove that sucked me in. Overnight I became addicted to house.”
His career has spanned 10 years now. Influenced by local talents Oscar G and Parantula he has been making Miami residents, and tourists, move, shake and dance to his music all across the city. He has opened for internationally known DJs such as Boris, Sultan, Antoine Clamaran, Edgar V., Armand Pena, Dj Rooster & Sammy Peralta, Starkillers and Austin Leeds, Steven Lee to name a few. He has spun at Major Miami clubs Karu and Y, Pawnshop, Nocturnal, Metropolis, and was a Nocturnal Terrace resident for two years.
Rivero has spun at numerous charity event’s around Miami. Most recently he spun at a Florida International University Dance-A-Thon fundraiser.
His life is music, he lives, eats and breathes beats. “I don’t play for the money or fame. I do it because I love music. I was born to be an entertainer. I’m sure this is my calling. If I could do this for the rest of my life what a sweet life it would be,” he says.
Conquering the local market and garnering a huge Miami fan base in the process, Hectik Rivero is ready to take his show on the road. He will be touring the East Coast next year. Keep an eye out for him at a local venue near you!
