" His productions boast that sought after metropolitan flair, the kind that powerhouses like Moda Black and labels of the same ilk are championing hard so it's no wonder that the flourishing producer's year seems to be firmly taking shape. "
Summer 17 is shaping up nicely for Theo Kottis; with upcoming EP releases on Anjunadeep, Moda Black, and Sasha’s Last Night On Earth, plus a slew of festival dates scheduled – he is certainly living up to the hype, created by none other than The prime minster of Dance – Pete Tong. Coming from humble beginnings, he learnt his craft in various venues around Edinburgh and even ran nights back in the day with FLY promoter Tom Ketley. When FLY kicked off, Theo was the first name on the team sheet and his all night long sets have become stuff of legend in the city so we’re buzzing for 2017 with the greek god!
Having DJ’d alongside Jamie Jones, Tale Of Us, Seth Troxler and David August as well as being able to count the likes of Pete Tong, Solomun and Simian Mobile Disco as fans, Theo has established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting emerging talents.
Gradually gaining the recognition he deserves from the likes of Solomun, Skream, Adam Beyer and Pete Tong, 2014 saw Theo Kottis make an exciting entrance onto the scene, with his EP Waiting Game storming the Beatport Electronica top 10.
Sometimes dark, sometimes uplifting, always emotive; Theo is truly obsessive about his approach to music. As a DJ he’s already performed at Rockness, T In The Park, Hideout and Glasgow’s legendary Sub Club, and that’s purely down to his talents in the booth. Now, with a blossoming production career, Theo has found a whole new way to convey his passion for music and convert his wide range of influences and experiences into substantive club compositions.
