The Scottish maestro takes the roof off with a sun-down set of disco anthems and cult house classics. Recorded live in Barcelona.

Hector Barbour is a man of many aliases, yet he’s best known for his work as Denis Sulta. A producer and DJ, Sulta is at the forefront of a new generation of music in Glasgow. His distinctive brand of house is primed for the dancefloor, but far more nuanced than the uninitiated might assume. The propulsive percussiveness of the genre is always present, but it’s often offset by a melodic warmth. With each song, he manages to wrest the emotive from the electronic. His progressive suites have led to releases on record labels such as Numbers, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, and Mister Saturday Night. Under his other monikers, Atlus and Conrad Hart, he produces eclectic, equally melodic beats that deftly flit between electronic genres. But no matter the name, Barbour’s commitment to the progressive remains constant.
