Cotti hails from Brixton, SW9 London. Cotti is a producer/DJ/MC, and one half of -30 Recordings (Minus 30) alongside his partner Cluekid. Cotti formed 4N Format Crew (grime) around 2006, basing themselves in South London. Cotti started out making grime, but was quickly introduced to dubstep sound by DJ Chef. Shortly after Loefah (DMZ) gave Cotti even more insight into making dubstep music, leading him to get even more involved in the dubstep scene. Cotti now focuses mainly on grime and dubstep, working with vocalists as well.
