It’s no secret that Glasgow has a rich dance music heritage. From Slam, Optimo and Harri & Domenic to Jackmaster, Jasper James and Bake, talent flows through numerous generations.
The name Denis Sulta has stood out in particular over the last 12 months and the 22 year old is on the cusp of becoming every house head’s new favourite DJ.
His early productions on Dixon Avenue Basement Jams oozed cool and came with a rugged dancefloor sensibility. Seductive vocals, fierce basslines and venomous kicks were in abundance on the ‘Sulta Selects Vol.1’ EP and on his Mister Saturday Night release (as Atlus), he channeled his love for disco and gave it a spanky Scottish edge.
One tune however has crossed over and become bigger than anyone could have expected. ‘It’s Only Real’ started trickling into sets last summer and in December last year Sulta’s breakout tune finally saw release on UK institution and Glasgow-grown label Numbers. If you’ve been out partying over the last six months then we reckon you’ll have heard this and we’re equally as sure you’ll have gone batshit crazy for it.
Take a banging break-out tune (and some serious EPs to back it out), some outrageous charisma behind the decks and a fistful of Glaswegian pride, and you’ve got Denis Sulta, one of the most exciting prospects in the game right now.
