Hector Garza's musical roots are in deep, soulful, vocal house inspired by what was once called "San Francisco House" in the early-mid 2000's during the era of famous San Francisco house djs Miguel Migs, Kaskade, Julius Papp, David Harness & Jay-J.  As the house scene in San Francisco evolved and changed with the times, Garza developed a more "mainstream friendly" style of house music, remixing popular top 40 tracks, to entice and attract a more "mainstream listener" and educate them on house music.  With the rise of DJ AM, and the "mash-up" sound prevailing over old & new San Francisco nightclubs that predominantly once were house-only clubs, Garza has been at the forefront 'battle line' fighting to keep house music alive & fist-pumping.  With his exclusive residency with DonovanSF for the past 5 years, Garza has been a key musical ingredient to the success of the famous Donovan parties that have reigned San Francisco nightlife for the past decade, and to date, remain the hottest #1 parties in a city, even though "Top 40" and "Mash-Up" is more popular.

"Hector has been my 'secret weapon' for 5 years.  He knows how to open & build the energy in a room to set up a DJ headliner to kill it.  He also knows how to close a room and have the dancefloor in a frenzy with cheers, hands in the air & smiles ear to ear.  He's a shape-shifter, I call him a chameleon.  He can 'metamorphasize' into whatever vibe I need.  I tell him we are doing latin house tonight, he kills it with latin house.  I tell him we are Djing all commercial Top 40 remixes tonight, he has the dancefloor packed with girls singing & dancing.  I tell him we are going "old school" deep house tonight, he has all the "old school" kids smiling & nodding their heads in approval." ~ Donovan

On April 17, 2010, Garza released his first CD compilation "REMINISCE: Timeless "Sing-Along" House Classics & Anthems, Vol. I".  With REMINISCE, Garza takes old classics such as Peter Heller's "BIG LOVE" & Stardust's "MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER" as well as recent club anthems such as Kaskade's "MOVE FOR ME" & Fragma's "TOCA'S MIRACLE", flawlessly remixes them with what is hot & contemporary in the biggest house nightclubs of the world.
