“Kotchy describes what he does on his MySpace as “experimental hip-hop pop” and although he doesn’t particularly sound like avant-disco doyen Arthur Russell, his music will appeal to fans of same. He’s a would-be R&B auteur like Pharrell with the playful approach of a Prince or Beck, using a blend of electronic and acoustic instruments to bring an intelligent, deconstructive, dub-conscious focus to dance music. He reminds us that Andre 3000 of OutKast is a big fan of Squarepusher and his songs have the sticky, murky feel of current NY disco faves Hercules and Love Affair.” THE GUARDIAN Kotchy’s style is impossible to pigeon hole; top drawer production, sensational instrumental & visual work plus his own unique vocal style - a hushed out, rough-yet-delicate affair that immediately attracts one’s ear.  A drummer by trade, his percussive roots shine throughout his music as electronics, synths, vocals, samples, and beats reminiscent of J Dilla and Pharrell blend with the funk, melody and color of Prince and Beck.  Playing and recording every element while producing his tracks, Kotchy’s live experience remains as unique as his music on record.  Anchored by a stripped down version of his home studio that he fits into a backpack, Kotchy moves effortlessly between the mic, drum triggers, keyboard, controllers, and laptop surrounded by ever-changing custom video projections.  What unfolds is nothing like you have ever seen or heard before, something Mix Mag can only describe as “amazing mutant pop!” Not one to merely remain a “solo artist,” Kotchy’s collaborations and remixes have been many: Tricky, Empire Of The Sun, Fischerspooner, Eclectic Method & Chuck D., Starkey, Reso, Benni E and his “Le Passion, Yo!” (EP) with Yo! Majesty’s Shunda K (Domino). With another record on the way soon Kotchy is continuing to break new ground and challenge the pop world on a daily basis.  If you don’t know, well, it’s time to get to know the man that DJ Mag calls “one of the best producers around.”
