VENUE CHANGE: Due to the sad and sudden demise of the T Bar, we have moved our party to Platinum Bar right in the middle of Shoreditch and we have decided to make it a FREE PARTY! The guys at Platinum have been very ncie to accomodate us and we want to round off our series of T Bar parties by offering it to all our regulars for FREE! We can only offer this up until 2am!
We're very proud to invite COTTAM as a guest for the next party. Cottam has become a name to watch since his debut release in September 2009. His rise to recognition has been swift, but like most ‘overnight successes’ he’s been plugging away for years.
The last couple of years has seen Cottam try his hand with some production experiments. Hearing the pitched down sound of Mark E & The Revenge has led to a reduction in tempo, and the combining of influences from the other parts of the collection – neo-soul, afro-beat, hip hop – along with deep loop driven house led to a healthy stack of early demos. They formed the first three anonymous ‘COTTAM’ 12”s that flew out of the specialist shops and become some of 2009s biggest sellers for underground shops such as Phonica, Rub-A-Dub and Piccadilly. Phonica listed all three in their top releases of 2009.
Early 2010 has seen Cottam release a track on an EP for Wolf Music alongside Illja Rudman, and an anonymous four track EP on Germany’s Story Records. Future releases on Amp Art and more in the COTTAM series, alongside remix work will ensure another busy twelve months for one of the scenes fastest rising stars.
His DJing style combines his past in techno, building layers of intense sound that are constantly tweaked combined with deep jacking house dripping in soul and the slower disco edits from the likes of LTJ Experience. Just like his releases the rough combines with the smooth for an experience that manages to be both deep and keeps your interest.
Alongside COTTAM will be the return of Hector, back from Mexico, and his first Phonica gig since the release of his "Orale" track on the shop's label, complete with Sis & Alex Picone remixes. Cottam & Hector will be supported by the Phonica residents, Simon Rigg, "The" Vangelis, Soho and Sam Relleen!
Hope to see you there! And remember, its free before 11pm !
