Artist Profile Bio:
In 2005, James T. Cotton teamed up with then roommate D’Marc Cantu to create 2 AM/FM, an unflinching take on pure techno and house. Their first releases, Pt. 1 and 2 featured raw drum boxes and cavernous synths in line with the sound of Rephlex and Trax Records. Unapologetically avoiding contemporary, flashy production techniques, these EPs received support from TRAXX, Laurent Garnier, Todd Osborn, Mick Wills, Derek Plaslaiko, Theo Parrish, Carlos Souffront among others. Their reinterpretation of “T-Y-O-C Painkillers” on Cotton’s Oochie Coo single is classic slowbeat acid at its finest.
In 2007 the duo continued to produce projects that presented new ideas towards underground dance music. the 1st track they did for Nation 2 called 'Don't Front' took a different approach embedded with raw, affected vocals and keyboard tonestabs, bring the machines back to life creating an original sound, and a new style of dance floor rhythm to work your body.
in 2008 they strike hard with one of the best 12 inches of straight forward jakbeat to deeply rooted grooves on Spectral with the Electronic Justice EP...every single track on the record is absolutely brilliant..
stay tuned for more material comin on the horizon soon..
