Biography —

Cottam first came to wider attention with a series of limited edition 12″s released from 2009 onwards, showcasing his production talents by re-working afro-beat, neo-soul, funk & hip-hop into quirky deep house burners that really stood out from the crowded racks of disco edits & 90s house rip-offs, not only for the original source material but by following a different path to keeping the dancefloor moving. He has gone to release original music & reworks on Story, Use Of Weapons, Aus, Amp Art, Flight Recorder, Sound Of Speed, Endless Flight, Phonica, Wolf Music, Delusions Of Grandeur, Tru Thoughts & Audio Parallax and DJed around the world mixing techno, deep house, disco and anything else with a groove into a rich sonic stew.

He is also a resident at the highly respected Bohemian Grove night in Salford, Manchester.

2014 saw the realisation of a long held ambition with the launch of his own label, Ruff Draft. The first release came from the man himself and future releases are lined up from LK, Louis Guilleme & Robot84. As if that’s not enough to keep one man busy, Cottam has forthcoming releases on Moton, the new Moton subsidiary Machine, Pinkman & !K7 (an exclusive track for Will Saul’s DJ Kicks mix), as well as remixes on Constant State, Love Monk, Leftroom & Plastic Love.
