Bio

Hailing from Germany’s prolific Cologne area, Kotapski is gaining more and more momentum. As a producer, DJ and label head his style clearly owes to the Chicago heritage. Kotapski is sitting firmly in the drivers seat when it comes to his very own style.

Music has always been an important part of his life and so he decided to use his last name instead of an artist name. Kotapski’s musical claim to himself is high, and that’s what he stands for by his name. Kotapski’s style behind the decks varies between deep house and tech house – often with a touch of Chicago House, but always with emotion, groove and phatness.

  • Bukowski_live (Heilbronn, Germany)
