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.
Kotapski has played at the following clubs and events:
Kotapski has released on labels such as VIVa Limited, Monza Ibiza Records, Blufin Records, My Favourite Freaks Music, Yellowtail Records, Baroque Rec. UK, Louder than Famous, Natura Viva, Evosonic Records, Partysan Records and Lost Vegas Records. His passion for electronic music is also reflected by remixes he did for artists such like Jens Lissat, Cyberdelics, Chicago-based artist Hanna, Will Taylor (UK) & Mirko di Florio to name just a few. Michael’s tracks have been supported by high-profile artists such as Mladen Tomic, Hanne & Lore, M.in, Danito & Athina, DJ Hildegard, Gene Farris, Riva Starr, Jens Lissat and others.
For a couple of years Michael was hosting the “Taktgefühle” (engl.: sense of tact) radio show on Cologne’s #1 online radio station 674FM, broadcasted on a weekly basis, as well as the “Louder than Famous Live & Wired” radio show on legendary Evosonic Radio. His show on Evosonic Radio was broadcasted until May 2018 on a monthly basis every 1st Thursday.
In May 2017 Kotapski started “Louder than Famous”, a Cologne-based record label and a home for international artists and producers, to release the kind of quality underground music Michael loves so much.
