New Signing: Paul Cottam

A sign of the times is Cottam. He is a veritable one man Balearic beacon of shining electronic light if the truth be told. From Deep dark techno to blissful Balearic beats, the sounds of Paul Cottam can be heard resonating from the decks of Daniel Avery to those of Mark E, such is the eclecticism of this DJ and producer who knows no musical bounds..

A DJ since time, Cottam kicked off his production career in 2009 with a series of deep disco and house EPs on his own Cottam imprint.  In a short space of time he elevated his productions from a feature of those who know to a staple in DJ sets of DJ boxes of the internationally renowned DJs across all house based genres. Now a resident at Bohemian Grove in Manchester Cottam has a base to continue the inexorable spread of his sound across town and country, river and ocean, and is doing so across the UK and Europe, where it has been heard on Daniel Avery’s Rinse FM show, the Crème Organisation’s podcast, Hypercolour’s Rinse FM show, as well as the Love Dose Heartcast, and on Will Saul’s Aus label and is DJ Kicks on superbad German house foundation label !K7.  

This is no po faced me me me DJ who stands behind a laptop calling it a ‘live’ show. We are talking about a man who plays vinyl on those old fashioned things called turntables, and who names his DJ mixes “Let’s Get Drunk And Dance – The Courvoisier Edition” and “ A Wee Mess Before Lunch”.  The fun-loving irreverent approach comes through in not only his DJ mixes but in his production, and that’s why dancefloors of all the genres across the houseworld groove along to his scratching and cutting, as well as his funky house deep eclectic releases.

Phoenix Music International’s publishing arm is proud to publish such a true Balearic evangelist as Paul Cottam, and we properly look forward to spreading the word of the Balearic bible according to Cottam.  

Check out Cottam’s Boilerroom session from a few months ago here to get a flavor of what the man is all about..
