Finnish DJ and producer Otto Yliperttula, better known as Yotto, is a rising star in house music. Recently he’s been hard at work coming up with what Billboard described a “fabulously brooding” debut album. Yotto’s career is on the fast track; he released his first single, “Seven Mountains,” in 2014 and debuted on Anjunadeep in early 2015, then almost immediately gained the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Annie Mac. Since, Yotto has gained over 40 million streams as well as support from the industry heroes like Eric Prydz, Adriatique and Joris Voorn, the latter of which signed Yotto to his renowned Green label.
With so much talent supporting him, Yotto is more than primed to join the big leagues with the release of his debut album, Hyperfall, the culmination of three years in ascendance. Yotto offers insight into his creation, “This record is generally inspired by the feeling of having lost and found your car keys at the same time. There’s drama, distress and deep, profound contemplation mirrored with relief and relentless joy.” He breaks down each track in depth with Billboard here.
Yotto is smack in the middle of his biggest tour ever, starting with shows across Europe and both North and South America. He’ll also be joining a shining lineup at the second annual Goldrush; get your tickets now!
