Hector Couto

Tech House Pioneer

Spanish-born Hector Couto’s unique take on Tech House has established him as a driving force on the international Tech House scene, merging the spirit of Chicago with the atmosphere of old school techno for compelling productions that get floors moving. Often featured in Resident Advisor’s Top 100 Most Charted artists, he’s had a steady stream of EPs released on labels like Hot Creations, Saved, Moon Harbour, 20/20 Vision, and Viva Music, and on top of this, also heads up his own Roush label. An attentive and diverse DJ, he never repeats the same trick twice, skilfully mixing up sounds perfectly suited to whatever club or festival he plays, whether it’s Amnesia Ibiza, Pacha Barcelona, We Are Festival in London, or Halcyon in San Francisco, taking his audiences on a journey while keeping them engaged.
