Michigan native Tadd Mullinix aka JTC (James T. Cotton) is DJing professionally since the mid-90s and active as a producer with renowned releases under a variety of aliases and collaborative projects with some of the world’s most respected producers.
JTC has touched almost every point of the Detroit area creative spectrum. From hip-hop to acid techno to abstract electronics, he has created his own world of unique and raw productions. The multi-faced man easily adapts everywhere he goes and is one of the few artists with the diverse talent and ability to successfully fill not just one musical career, but many. At the same time that Dabrye emerged from Tadd Mullinix’s mind, so did the JTC alias. His debut single came out like a strange techno oddity in 2001. Not one to be pigeonholed, Cotton’s work became darker and more hypnotic in his later releases, with some also influenced by classic techno.
In September 2014 Mullinix created the Bopside Records imprint with the aim of releasing the rich flood of music that flows forth from his Ann Arbor studio. James T. Cotton represents Mullinix’s deep love of techno, the sensation that is evident in Mullinix’s powerful DJ sets.
