Cotti - Back to My Roots EP (STN007)

I've always thought Cotti was one of the most under-rated and unknown producers out there given his long history with the Dubstep community and the evolution of it. The owner of Sumting New Records has been producing dubstep in the motherland of London since 2004 but only has 7,350 Soundcloud followers. He's worked on collaborations with dubstep legends Coki and Skream, as well as Kromestar, Dub Pistols, P Money, and Skepta. He even had a track titled "The Legacy" featured on one of dubstep's most famous releases, Rusko and Caspa's "Fabric Live 27" CD. His US breakthrough was my personal favorite Cotti release, "The Resurrection" EP signed to 12th Planet's LA based SMOG Records in 2014. He has remained relevant by continuously releasing music on his STN label that always seems to keep his signature style and push barriers of genre constraint at the same time. Today, I am posting his "Back to My Roots" EP that was released on Nov. 25th. This EP cannot be streamed on Soundcloud but instead on Bandcamp, where you can purchase it for $4.54 (or £3).

In this 4 track EP, Cotti showcases his signature wonky, well mastered synths that his fans know him for but effortlessly mixes and pays homage to his Reggae/Jamaican Dubstep roots in "Elusive", "Stay Calm", and "Cool Down". This is great, vibey release from Cotti- I support it! And you should take some time to check it out. Also, if you don't already, definitely follow him on Soundcloud. He always has new and good music coming out.
