Vancouver Island-native Michael Mlikotic, better known as Kotek, released his debut EP, Aurora, and in its 6 songs, it is jam-packed with a genre-bending array of hip hop, EDM, trip hop and trap. But do not get caught up in the fact that it is mainly electronic music, because then you would be missing the point. What Kotek does throughout is blends brilliantly the two distinct musical world of the organic and inorganic. His distinct ability to merge the two is something that is relatively unique and sets his music apart.
The Canadian DJ/producer has been playing musical instruments since the age of 7 including the piano and drums. His rise as an electro-artist is a recent revelation, but Aurora is polished and balanced. It is filled with heavy bass, funky horn rhythms and the typical electro-beats and is accompanied by a few guest rappers: D-Lay, Element and Vicarious.
Kotek is expanding the definition of electronic music and in a good way. His incorporation of organic and playable music is more than just hitting buttons or pushing play. Looking for something a little different to expand your EDM collection? Then, pick up Aurora.
