In the world of DJing, clichés abound, and the phrase 'reading the room' is certainly one of them. But no words describe Theo Kottis' abilities better. In sync with every crowd he pleases, the Scottish-Greek DJ-producer first made a name for himself as a fixture of Glasgow's Sub Club and Edinburgh's Cab Vol, before moving on to institutions and renowned festivals like Panorama Bar, The Warehouse Project, The Cause, and Lost Village. Stealthily dropping what could be considered 2023's final dance floor anthem, his track 'Lighthouse' graced Dekmantel records at the year's end, having enjoyed heavy rotation all summer courtesy of Ben UFO, Francesco Del Garda, and Palms Trax. 'Lighthouse' skillfully weaves together snappy, melodically-charged house, techno, and electro with a distinct 90s edge, seamlessly moulding them into a lethal, effective whole – a standout ability that Theo also brings to the decks.
