Matty G is a Dubstep music producer from California, USA. He is known for a hip-hop and reggae influenced style. Matty G's been on the low down this year, but evidently it was time well spent. The dark side-infused 'Watching You' works wraith-like mentasms and classic jungle breaks into a superbly moody and atmospheric half-stepper with his trademark layered 808 subs, contrasting acutely with 'The Realness' a mellow G-Funked roller with sparkling gangsta-boogie keys.
Cotti Hailing From Brixton South London in an established Dubstep Producer & DJ aswell as Artist & Founder of the Sumting New Record Label & Publishing Company not to mention his original Dubstep Label "BassFace"(2007)
Cotti is without a doubt reguarded as part of the founding crew of Dubstep pioneers with his own unique sound of Reggae creatively fused with Grime/Garage to make his take on Dubstep, this young man is also single handedly dominating the vocal side of Dubstep.
Cotti has been involved in the Dubstep scene since the early days of when not many people had even heard of FWD or DMZ Dubstep nights & has therefor
had the oppertunity to play at both nights which gave him the platform he needed to get his music heard by the club scene & finally build a career from one of his life long passions "Music"
He initially met up with Loefah(DMZ) & Chef who then introduced, him & his partner at the time "ClueKid" to the rest of the pionerring Dubstep Producers within the ever expanding scene. It turns out that Loefah actually gave Cotti his second ever DJ set at DMZ in 2006, while Cotti had only been DJin for not more than 3 months but it seems that the DMZ crew were into thier music & felt they deserve a chance to prove themselves which they did.
Cotti quickly Cemented his name permenantly in the Dusbtep genre with Dj support from the likes of Skream, Benga, Caspa, Rusko, Joker, Dmz, Plastician, Hatcha, Ntype, Kode9, Pinch & the list goes on. It seems that his relationship with Dj Chef was workin well as it was Chef who always seemed to Drop a Cotti riddem a get everyones attention with Dubstep anthems such as "SensiDub"(2006), "The Lagacy"(2007), "I dnt Give a Dub"(2008) followed up with "CalmDown"(2008)
& "Rise da Temperature"(2009) both featuring the Grime Scenes Doctor.
