Michael Mlikotic, as Kotek is otherwise known, is a producer and DJ who burst onto the scene last year when he won Splice’s remix competition and earned himself a slot at Mysteryland festival in June. The track competitors were working on was Anima Mundi from Gramatik’s 2016 album Epigram and Kotek’s unusual arrangements and dynamic progressions immediately caught the attention of Slovenian producer. It’s six months later and Michael is about to drop his debut EP on Lowtemp, titled "Aurora."
Kotek is on a mission to inject some fresh ideas into electronic (dance) music and help to blur the divide between organic and electronic sound. “For me, music production is the definition of freedom and expression and my only goal is to connect with the community and create something we can all enjoy.”
