YOU always know when a top DJ is loving the crowd he's playing to – the set they play is superb and one feeds off the other – creating the perfect party atmosphere.
That's the way it was at OutDores on Saturday as high-flying Glaswegian artist Denis Sulta stormed the stage and the crowd bounced their hearts out.
Just before that stomping set Glasgow's electro-techno magician Sparky (AKA Dave Clark) had whipped up the crowd into a frenzy, with wave upon wave of groovy tunes.
Sulta's set dipped in and out of an Old Skool vibe with plenty of crowd-pleasing ground-shakers that fed the packed-out venue exactly the final adrenalin rush they needed to finish off a superb day of top dance music at probably one of the best and most picturesque venues Scotland has to offer.
There were plenty people on shoulders with most being unable to stop themselves getting their hands in the air and showing their obvious appreciation.
The early acts, including local star Ally Ridgers, had kept the party grooving along perfectly, with few lulls in the beats and fine mixes that kept the excitement rising, but not too quickly.
It was also very refreshing to see that the prices for drink and food were reasonable and not the usual rip-off tariffs you expect from large live events and festivals.
The OutDores team then delivered a stomping after party at the Ironworks with absolute legends Leftfield turning in a massive set of floor-fillers more than ably backed up by the home team's DJs.
