Julian Perez developed a love for electronic music since the early 90’s heavily influenced by the music coming out of Detroit, Chicago and UK. These sounds gave him a new direction where he has spent the last 2 decades educating his ear and refining his approach to djing.
After releasing on a handful of the current and relevant labels since 2010 before long it became clear that the next logical step was to launch his very own label ‘Fathers & Sons Productions’, a strictly vinyl-only label. This provided Julian a platform to push his sound worldwide and within a short of period time, the label gained international exposure with the likes of the most respected artist on the scene. Showing full support in the clubs by playing his productions on his own label and in others such as Cocoon Recordings.
To date every release has sold out in the first week of sales testiment to Julian’s fine taste in House & Techno production as well as having a good ear for spoting new and interesting artists.
With the label expanding in 2013, Julian is now in demand in his own right, with notable gigs and label showcase events in festivals such as ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event), Sonar (Barcelona), Kazantip (Ukraine), BPM (Mexico) and Miami WMC (Winter Music Conference). Dates in Russia, Japan, USA, UK and the rest of Europe as well as essential clubs like Rex in Paris and Robert Johnson in Germany showing not only him as a label boss, but as an independent artist.
The best way to get to know and enjoy Julian is to listen to him in his own world behind the decks.
Hector Couto has created his very own trademark production sound, the perfect amalgam between honest Chicago House and impetuous old-school techno: sublime tech-house at the whim of the listener.
Hector’s style slots seamlessly into a space between driving groove, effusive funk full of feeling and moments of pure emotion that flow not only from his creativity and extensive rhetorical sound, but also from his technique and the varied resources used in the production studio.
This has led him to be nominated for the Vicious Music Awards for Best Artist of the Year in 2013, and get 54th position on the Resident Advisor Top 100 all-time charted artists.
For Hector, this has also been an important year in the study, more than 20 productions, remixes and EPs on labels like Hot Creations, Get Physical, B Pitch Control, Noir Music, and OFF Recordings, to name a few.
As creative mind always in motion, this 2014 Hector has conceived a new label, ROUSH, dedicated to expose his most personal and passionate musical side.
ROUSH will feature artists like Hector Moralez, Julien Sandre, Raffa FL, Jamie Trench, among many others.

After that, he started playing in many different clubs including Heaven and Universal. In the meanwhile he worked in a record shop, where he got access to a recording studio in wich he produced three singles for the label Lucas Records. In ’99 he got a residency at Amnesia in Ibiza. There he had the brillant opportunity to be line up with the biggest djs and could learn the different styles looking to build his own. Amnesia was also the place where Paco got in touch with the person who most influenced his future as much personally as professionally, Sven Väth, who soon discoverd Paco to be very talented and introduced him in his Cocoon Booking agency. Paco was the frist Spanish dj to play for this prestigious agency. In 2001 Paco decided to leave house music moving closer to techno.
