On this week's show we have a Cottam special. There is a wedge of his new & forthcoming tracks in the first hour. In the 2nd hour he takes to the decks with a set put together especially for the show.
After dj'ing and tinkering since the age of 14, Cottam burst onto the scene in 2009 with the release of three 12"s of quality deep house music. His brand of house music takes influences from soul, hiphop, afrobeat, disco, dub and techno.
Prolific since the start, Cottam's back catalogue is bulging. In March 2014 he releases his debut 12" on his own Ruff Draft label, and there is a two tracker on the new Motion label due that month too. In April his Ruff Treatment mix of Al Gobi's Cup Of Tea comes out on Constant State.
As a DJ, he is a natural talent. Give him any box of records and he will mash them up with ease and skill in the way only the very best can do it. These days Cottam is world renowned and is talked about is the same sentences as Theo Parrish and Moodymann. Not bad for a humble lad from the North West UK who just loves to do his thing whilst "plodding on" with life..
