Edinburgh-based House Of Traps (or H.O.T.) has been in the game for 12+ years, refining his role as Artist/Label Owner/DJ to a degree that many others only ever witness second hand.

He is the backbone of Firecracker Recordings (specialising in oddball house, techno and electronics), Sacred Summits, Unthank and numerous other Scottish endeavors. Like many seemingly obscure producers with a shattering online presence, House Of Traps remains an enigma till he’s seen live at 9pm on Friday, 18th November at KOI, Circular Road.

Supported by Vito Zeubill (La Mamie’s), Revision Music, KOI Brunch + Beats and Stew and Tom (Sideshow).12828389_943599522405829_7319959308469175396_oStay till late for just $10 at the door.
