After been dragged kicking and screaming into the world on Record Store Day in 2012 it seems fitting that our 1st Birthday brings a guest with special affinity with vinyl only releases in his infancy.
COTTAM (Aus Music) shot to notoriety in 2009 with three limited edition 12”s that blew up the underground scene without forwarning – combining neo-soul, afrobeat and hip hop with tight house grooves all three sold out in record time.
Since then, he's concentrated on developing his own style of sub-aquatic acid house – remixes for Luv Jam on Phonica’s label, Pattern Select on Delusions of Grandeur and Morning Factory on 20:20 Vision offshoot Fina have complemented original tracks on Quintessentials, Wolf Music, German undercover label Story and the summer anthem ‘Sunrise Sunset’.
As always, a rare chance to see a headline act in an intimate venue Cottam will aided and abetted by Hardlife residents Emma, Rob, Kieren and Sean.
We are one.
