Hector Couto is a shining example that talent and youth can go hand in hand. Hailing from the ever fertile Tenerife region of Spain, Hector has commanded the respect of the international electronic scene in no time at all. The best example of this being his appearance in Resident Advisor’s Top 100 most charted artists of 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Couto’s sound has not stopped evolving and growing during his short but successful career, maintaining a personal and unmistakable groove – sleak, well-crafted dancefloor-orientated tracks that are full of energy and irresistable basslines. It’s a sound that has court favour with labels such as Hot Creations and Get Physical, along with releasing music on his own label, Roush. In tandem with his career the popularity of Hector’s music has continued its ascent into the upper echelons of success, while his recent partnership with the UK’s own house specialist Darius Syrossian proved that he is just as adept at working with others as he is in a solo capacity. The brilliant ‘Who’s The Douche?’ EP demonstrated Hector’s ability to produce music that is both catchy, dynamic and firmly rooted in the underground.
Likewise, his skills as a DJ have been proven time and again with storming appearances all over Europe from Egg and Pacha in London, through to Sankeys Ibiza and across the Atlantic in New York, Brazil, S.A. and beyond. On each occasion he treats his performance as a fresh challenge, giving each room great passion, vibe and positive energy that always captivates dancefloors.
The future is in the hands of the next generation, and with youngsters like Hector Couto you can be sure that it’s in very safe hands.
