For me Happy Colors aka Hector Mendoza is the realest of the realest when he says:
“I make music for…..ME”
Dominican DJ/Producer Hector Mendoza a.k.a. Happy Colors invites you to a world devoid of genre and filled with drowned out vocals, dark synths and bassy 808s. From the cool swelter of Miami, the 18-year-old DJ/Producer spends his time cutting, copying, pasting, sampling and recording wear sounds and rhythms solely to please his own taste and unique style. Because Happy Colors doesn’t make music for the listener that wonders “when is the kick going to drop?” 30 seconds in and he certainly doesn’t make it for that one person who says “this track is too long.” According to him, he makes music “for smart people with an open mind…” Because people with an open mind in music can understand and enjoy first, then analyze and criticize later.
Watch out for this dude cause he is KILLING the GAME right now and it’s a huge pleasure for us to showcase his current fave Top 10 tracks of the moment.
