ON THE FLOOR HARD IN THE PAINT WITH


With dance music culture on the rise, a calling for apparel and accessories tailored to the genre has become extremely prevalent. KottonZoo, a clothing and merchandise company is making their mark by providing for the musical lifestyle. How? They’ve become the leading supplier for LED products and the official manufacturer and distributor of Life In Color merchandise.


Founder of KottonZoo and long time friend of David Solano and Emir Duru, Timmy Jones, said he pulled together the right people to help drive the company where it is today. “They’ve seen people fail and they’ve seen people succeed in the merchandise. So, they know how to attack the angle. These guys have a new idea. They know what works today,“ shared Solano.


KottonZoo’s partnership with LIC has allowed them to reach audiences around the world and create collaborations with artists. They’ve combined Krewella’s song title Play Hard with LIC’s paint theme to create a specialty “Play Hard in the Paint” line of t-shirts and tank tops.


Yes, they create and distribute LIC merchandise AND make it extremely accessible for attendees. Those who purchase VIP admission receive a drawstring bag filled with KottonZoo swag. In case partygoers didn’t splurge for VIP, the K-Zoo crew can be found down in the paint trenches selling gear to the masses. Jones travels along with his crew to work the Life In Color events, selling and throwing paint into the crowd.


Busy with running merchandise management for over 200 shows/festivals and gaining an average of 3,000 fans a month, KottonZoo finds the time to make their


T-shirts to order. The company keeps low inventory with no bulk orders, making every order a little personal. Taking their t-shirts to another level and making the event experience stress free, KottonZoo will be introducing T-shirt tickets in the near future.


“It might sound cliché, but it’s like the saying ‘Look who’s landed’ …KottonZoo has landed!” said Emir Duru, “Look at their logo, it’s an alien bunny! It’s serious.” So if you’re at an event and spot that purple alien bunny, you know KottonZoo landed there. Whether “Music is your drug” or you’re a “Glove Lover,” this EDM swag apparel company has something for anyone ready to rage.
