Crack Mix 385:
Otik

Techno Bass R&B Rap

Bristol-born and London-based DJ Otik – real name Ashley Thomas – has had a prolific year in 2020.

The producer has consistently released a stream of EPs, including the brilliant Wetlands, Thousand Year Stare, Zero-Sum Game and his most recent one, 4CB. The Bristol tradition can be heard in his earlier productions, which carry the heavy bass weight of the city’s sound. But beyond that, Otik’s move to London, marked by his most recent releases, also signals a divergence from that sonic trajectory, moving away from club-focused sounds.

Taking a break from his busy schedule, Otik demonstrates these contrasts in his Crack Mix. This one’s full of unreleased and forthcoming heaters, nuanced broken techno, and ends on some smooth Aaliyah vocals.
