Mike Slott is a musician routed in Jazz and Classical music but raised in Hip Hop and Electronic equipment. It’s becoming a familiar story these days but strip the story and gear away and you are left with one of the subtlest, most naturally gifted modern producers. His bravery to explore percussive, textural soundscapeswith shifting plates of synthetic melody has earned him kudos from some of the worlds leading musicians and critics.
Slott was one of the founders of LuckyMe and together we have grown up from the bare floorboards of a flat in Glasgow, recording hip hop long into the night, through to the backrooms of concerts in Manhattan. Mike’s tribute to his new home in NYC came in the form of Lucky 9Teen, his debut LP released on LuckyMe in October 2009. But with new music in progress and 9Teen’s license across Japan as an expanded CD, 2011 holds much for this humble innovator.
