Review: Dropout Disco

Review: Dropout Disco

Dropout Disco hava been doing a fantastic job at producing stylish nights all over Bristol this year, with a firm favourite being the Old Crown Courts.


The unique venues and visual stimulus, brilliantly organised, makes Dropout that little bit special - no surprise that tickets are agonisingly difficult to come by.

By nailing the production of the Dropout events, the music seamlessly follows. The past Dropout has showcased the skills from the likes of Call Super and Big Miz, who brought the perfect atmosphere to the disco.

This time their Facebook event produced two words, which brought a huge amount of delight amongst the Bristol house scene:

Denis Sulta

In the past couple of years, the Glaswegian producer has rocketed in popularity. Constantly improving his game and becoming one of the hottest selectors in the UK. Early productions, released back in 2014 on Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, set the tone showing some oozing skill and potential. Other releases quickly followed which appeared on his Sulta Selects label, such as 'Nein Fortiate' and 'Dubelle Oh XX', tracks of fresh variety. Sulta's rise has had twists and turns but his raw exciting talent shone through, witnessed by 500 people at Marble Factory.


For Dropout to deliver Sulta was spectacular but to back this up with the likes of Maurice Fulton and Brassica was tremendous. These guys really got the evening going. Maurice Fulton, one of house music's true originals, was first up and delivered a lively house set to get everyone warmed up.

Brassica shortly followed, bringing a true, synth-driven vibe to Motion's smaller warehouse. Having produced with the duo Bicep, his sounds and beats echoed that familiarity, displaying a true live performance.

Sulta was greeted with a rapturous round of applause from everyone on his entrance. The rest was a scintillating blur, in which he displayed why he is such a hot property at this moment in time. Weaving between tracks of different nature, such as Artwork's new acid track 'Let Go of My Acid' all the way to classics such as Nightlife Unlimited - 'Just Be Yourself (1980)', showed just how talented he is.


The capability to play between these genres of tracks is truly fabulous.


Throughout his 3-hour extended set, whilst sipping on a bottle of Bombay Saphire Gin, he truly did wear his heart on his sleeve.

Having listened to Sulta's music throughout the past couple of years, a certain moment summed the night up at Marble. Towards the end of his set, 'It's Only Real' was brandished. For those who haven't heard it, please have a listen. Although Sulta himself has admitted he is bored of hearing this song, the crowd showed it's actually still rather quite wonderful.


Dropout Disco most certainly delivered and proved their ever-increasing popularity.

Sulta was immense.

A huge talent.

With love,
