Having made the BBC Sound Poll 2012, as well as nods from the Sun and The Observer, Dot has been featured in publications as diverse as i-D, RWD, the NME and Dazed. A firm favourite in the underground for over five years, mainstream approval is set to skyrocket exponentially over the coming months.
With over three million combined views on YouTube to date, his new single, Are You Not Entertained clocked up over 750k hits in just over seven days, and was Zane Lowe's Hottest Record of the Week. In late 2011, Dot joined Tulisa, Ms. Dynamite, Ed Sheeran and Rizzle Kicks for the Gary Barlow curated Children In Need single, Teardrop, and featured on Cher Lloyd's Dub On The Track alongside Mic Righteous and Ghetts. Having already warmed up for Chase & Status and J Cole in 2011, he joins chart-topper Labrinth on his UK tour.

Produced by British trio TMS (Professor Green, Wretch, Dappy), Dot's debut single, Are You Not Entertained features brain-battering guitar with a furious b.p.m. as a flow-flipping Rotten asserts his verbal prowess and determination to put the past behind him. Entirely self-taught, Dot is also a renowned producer, having created tracks for street stars Durtty Goodz, Griminal and P Money as well as Wiley and Tinie Tempah. The focus right now though is writing.
If it's Dot doing the talking, we suggest you listen.
Dot Rotten will headline London Cargo on Tuesday 1st May 2012.
