Raised in Houston, Texas, and now operating out of Berlin, Lotic is DJ and producer J’Kerian Morgan, a resident artist of the city’s famed Janus parties.

Morgan released two EPs in 2013 – Sankofa / Glittering, and Fallout – on Sci Fi & Fantasy, before following up with 2014's Damsel in Distress mixtape on Janus' own imprint.

After featuring during Björk’s sit-in for Rinse FM, the stereotype-baiting producer’s first official outing, 2015’s Heterocetera EP on Tri Angle, was a hype-building showcase of destructive beats and skewed experimental electronica, which was further developed on Agitations, a mixtape released the same year. Morgan has toured extensively, including performances at festivals and club debuts in Asia and Australia, harnessing abstract leanings through hybrid live/DJ sets of gut wrenching bass, lurching hip hop rhythms and occasional splintered shards of contemporary R&B.
