In clubs Lotic is known to harness abstract leanings through hybrid live/DJ sets of gut-wrenching bass and lurching hip-hop rhythms, occasional shards of contemporary R&B splintered with tactile hi-hats, consistently swirling crowds into a riotous party vortex. As one of the most original contributors to Berlin’s club life, DJ and producer Lotic is currently making his international breakthrough with widely acclaimed mixtapes and studio releases. Originally from Houston, Texas, 25-year-old J’Kerian Morgan, aka Lotic, became a resident at the famous Janus parties. His Berlin-via-Houston sound is an apocalyptic mix of haunting synth melodies, destructive beats and skewed experimental electronica. Lotic’s recent mixtape Agitations was praised by Pitchfork as ‘thrilling futurism hinged on brute energy, angularity, and unremitting disquiet’ (8.2/10) and his first official release, the Heterocetera EP, earned similar accolades. lxtic.com
