Release Date: 02/11/2022
Hondo Vega is pleased to announce the release of his new upcoming single ‘Confidence’.
The new track plays tribute to the legends of the funk music era that heavily inspired Hondo as a music artist/songwriter. Part of the Hondo Vega sound is a testament to that.
Described as ‘if funk & house had a baby,’ Confidence goes on an obscure voyage of classic old school instruments w/ a nu-funk/house flavor. "That’s what I love about the funk. You can add your own spice to it without fear. It’s actually encouraged.” This is what Confidence is all about. Live life and enjoy the music!
Hondo Vega: pop music recording artist/songwriter hailing from New York City. Born and raised in the South Bronx, he became a natural product of the local renewed grassroots art when hip hop and graffiti generated enough enthusiasm in mainstream media to draw the art world's attention. Captivated by music at an early age Hondo became easily influenced by Top 40 radio including rock, pop and especially by dance music.
Hondo started his music career in the late 90’s in Reseda, CA (a long way from the Bronx) where he became the lead singer for a funk rock band Sweet Kid Soul. After a few years performing in the local L.A. club scene Hondo returned to New York to pursue a solo career experimenting new styles of music and performing in various venues, community events and festivals.
In 2012 “Revolution/Once in a Lifetime” became the first official promotional release under the Blackstorm Music record label followed up by “Death by Love” in 2016 after he made the move to become a resident of Puerto Rico. In 2018 he independently released “Hondo Vega Vol. 1“EP which contains five original tracks including “I Am Not a DJ” as the EP’s official single.
This project led to the much anticipated follow-up, “Moody” in early February 2019. This EP was produced by Norty Cotto featuring a remix of the classic single “Moody (Norty Cotto Afro Tech Remix)” that dominated Traxsource’s main house chart and afrohouse chart for more than four straight weeks at #1 gaining rave reviews from dance music bloggers/playlists around the globe.
Even though 2020 put a damper on things, the success of “Moody” resulted with the release of “Moody: The 2020 Remixes” (EP) in early May that also rose up the Traxsource tech house charts. And an 8-minute pseudo dance release in late October titled “F*** Off” was written as a special sendoff to the tumultuous year.
This year he started it up again with the tech house release of “You Get Me Started” and will close out with the upcoming electro funk release of “Confidence” a tribute to those who move forward no matter what. More to come for 2022, of course.
