Denis Sulta — or at other times, Hector Barbour — has rapidly emerged as one of the most exciting new talents from the ever-fertile Glasgow scene. He earned his stripes and a large part of his musical education and knowledge through working at the internationally renowned Rubadub record store, while holding down regular and ongoing sets at the world famous Sub Club. He has released records on influential labels Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Numbers, and his own Sulta Selects — which has also spawned a revered series of events across the globe, including the upcoming show at London’s iconic Printworks on 9th November. His stand out capabilities have seen him reach incredible heights for someone still so young. A Mixmag cover-star, he has recently joined BBC Radio 1’s Residency show alongside Jayda G, HAAi, Charlotte de Witte and Saoirse, and his music has won him fans in Ben UFO, Four Tet, Bicep and Peggy Gou, to name a few.
Listen 'Matthew Keeps Me Pirrie' :
“Matthew Keeps Me Pirrie”, is a “celebration of the realisation of what it is to be yourself, or at least, whoever you are in that moment”, explains Sulta. The track is dedicated to “a young man, name of Matthew, who entered my life quite recently. On one occasion, I was feeling frustrated with myself, I couldn’t understand why I couldn’t be like the people I admired. He kept me Hector that day, he welcomed Denis. For who we are. Thank you, Matthew. Sarning x”. About the rest of the EP, we’re excited to see what’s coming on November 8!
