Dot Rotten New single – Are You Not Entertained? Released 5th March Mercury Records
Dot Rotten is back with ‘Are You Not Entertained?’, his first release in 2012, the year he promises to deliver. Already the Hottest Record In The World on Zane Lowe’s show, ‘Are You Not Entertained?’ is an uncompromising track, fresh in terms of lyrics and production. It’s heavy and bold, a statement of intent, and one that offers a snapshot into Dot’s world.
Live Dot is fast developing a formidable reputation. An unwavering self-belief has seen a scorching set of shows supporting J Cole on his recent tour, along with dates with label-mates Chase & Status.
‘Are You Not Entertained?’ is the track that is set to propel Dot into the mainstream, but all on his own terms. Clear of thought and vision, Dot has eschewed the route of collaborations to concentrate on his own material. He creates his own beats, living in a musical world all of his own making. It’s a fresh approach these days, and one that is set to pay huge dividends this year.
Following glowing press in Dazed, i-D, NME, RWD and more, Dot has featured on the BBC Sound Poll 2012 longlist, as well as being tipped by the Sun and Observer as one to watch this year.
Dot has already supported J Cole and Chase & Status, and next up he has bagged the support slot on Labrinth’s debut UK tour.
