Bristolian producer Otik is a name that's been constantly popping up on our radar of late. Since he debuted on Brotherhood Sound System six years ago he's been steadily building up a healthy catalogue and refining his distinct take on club music and UK techno.
With previous releases for the likes of Dext Recordings, Keysound, Boogie Box and Nous, as well as remixes for Dusky, Paleman, Cabasa and more under his belt, we're sure we can expect plenty more exciting productions to come from the Otik camp in the future.
He looks set to take this year by storm already with two solo EPs penned for release in the next few months. He'll be making a home at Mr. Mitch's Gobstopper Records soon, but before that his melodic rhythms will see the light of day via Midland's InterGraded imprint next week.
Ahead of the release and with outer space in mind, he selects some of the tracks that beam him up into the cosmos...
“I chose this theme mainly due to the concept of space being a strong influence for me in music. It’s something I picture and think about a lot when making my own stuff and listening to others. Plus I watch a bunch of films and documentaries based around it, so I naturally end up sampling scores or trying to emulate that essence in my tunes and DJ sets.”

Onoe Caponoe - Moon (Galactico)
Onoe’s music has always had a theme of outer space running through it, but this one really paints a mental image of gliding through the cosmos. Chemo’s ethereal production style compliments the vocals so well, and the movement of the drums feels like a voyage through the galaxy.
