About Kotapski

Michael, a creative professional, has long been active in the electronic music culture. First only spinning the decks, Michael soon started producing his own tracks with releases on Lost Vegas Records and Partysan Records in 1999 and 2001. It then became quiet around Michael for a couple of years.

In 2014 Michael settled back into the electronic music culture with his own radio show „Taktgefühle“ on Colognes‘ #1 online radio station 674FM. In the same year Michael started producing tracks again resulting in releases on Yellowtail Records, Blu Fin Records, Natura Viva Music, ZYX and More Music in 2015 and early 2016. All of these tracks were co-productions with his mate Chris Maico Schmidt aka Mike S. In January 2016 Michael started working on his solo career – with success. Michaels‘ solo debut How’s Jack EP released on June 10th 2016 ranked #25 in Beatports‘ Top 100 Electronica albums, #27 in Beatports‘ Deep House Top 100 albums and last but not least #38 in Beatports‘ Tech House Top 100 albums. Michaels‘ debut EP has been charted for 36 days in total.


„Great release, I love all tracks but „How’s Jack“ is fucking FAAAAAAT !!! Thanks for the music.”
