J.T.C (Spectral Sound, Nation / Ann Arbor, U.S.A)
With two LPs and a slew of 12″ and collaborative projects, Tadd Mullinix, when not producing hip hop as Dabrye, has been leading the way for a new wave of jackin’ house, acid house, techno and electro under the aliases James T. Cotton and JTC. Recording for Spectral, TNT, Nation, Creme Organization, Udek, Frigio, M>O>S, Minimal Rome, Frigio, Hoya:Hoya, Ansatz, KillEKill, Lux Rec, and Relief, collaborating with Todd Osborn, D’marc Cantu and Traxx, and having remixed Orgue Electronique, The Horrors, and Depeche Mode – he has received critical acclaim for his raw productions from influentials like Laurent Garnier, Traxx, Ron Morelli, and Trevor Jackson. And his records have been in rotation thanks to respected DJs like Theo Parrish, Sven Väth, Traxx, Carlos Souffront, Ryan Elliot, Ben Sims, Mick Wills, Serge, and DJ Qu. He’s been DJing professionally since the mid-90s, meanwhile drawing influences from Ron Hardy to Jeff Mills. JTC has been touring the world and also playing regularly in his hometown, Ann Arbor, blending, seamlessly, unreleased originals, techno, disco, and everything in-between.
