Yotto

Yotto

Otto is Yotto, and Yotto is Otto.

He began his musical career at 12 years old, his brilliant young mind quickly living up to his age by creating rather fuzzy music
with a piano and old synthesizer. Born and raised in Helsinki, Finland, the son of an ex-rocker, he grew up in a house full of far better tunes, ranging from blues, to classic rock, to disco. With the blessings of the gods, something rather awful would soon enough turn into Something Good.

His personal tastes developed by digging through music at the public library, drawing those crucial first inspirations from legendary acts like Moby, Orbital and The Chemical Brothers. As he grew, skateboard culture drew him into harder rock acts Iron Maiden and Manic Street Preachers. Dance music began with Royksopp, which led to a love of the early progressive trance and house pioneers like Sasha, John Digweed, System F/Ferry Corsten, Way Out West and Chicane.

10 years ago, Otto discovered FL Studio. Over the next decade he went to school and made music with friends, all while developing a deeper knowledge of house music through pioneers like Kevin Saunderson, Kerri Chandler, Toddy Terry, Cajmere, Masters At Work and Ian Pooley. Originally noticed by Above & Beyond and Anjunadeep through his work on his Something Good alias, eventually he struck up a friendship with Pierce Fulton, which led to a remix of the huge hit “Kuaga” that was released on CR2 Records at the end of 2014.

Yotto started releasing with Anjuna in June of 2015 with the tracks Azzurro and Memento, the tunes garnered support from a range of stars, from Gorgon City to Tiesto. Since then he has remixed Above & Beyond's “Counting Down The Days,” while continuing to release on Anjunadeep with his acclaimed ‘Wondering’ EP picking up support from BBC Radio 1, SiriusXM and from tastemaker DJs like Lane 8, The Magician and Kidnap Kid. Yotto's ability to cross genres and labels is what sets him apart as an artist, his diversity and refusal to be defined is what makes him one of the most appealing new artists in dance music.

His last release of 2015, "Personal Space," was selected by Pete Tong as his Essential New Tune on November 20th. The accompanying track "Mulholland 99" was also featured on Tong's Radio 1 show. The tracks received support from a truly eclectic selection of renowned names, including Carl Craig, Danny Tenaglia, Dusky, Kidnap Kid, Lane 8 and Tensnake.

2016 started off with two huge remixes. First, a banging rework of RÜFÜS “Like An Animal,” another Essential New Tune on Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show, followed by a remix of Coldplay's massive hit "Adventure of a Lifetime." Originals “Aviate” and “Crosswalk” on Anjunadeep have garnered support from Above & Beyond, Pete Tong, Phil Taggart, Sasha, Laurent Garnier, Tiesto and Mark Knight. “Aviate” marked Yotto’s 3rd Essential New Tune.

Most recently, July 2016 saw Yotto release “The Owls” on Anjunadeep to widespread attention and acclaim, and in a short matter of time the single has proved to be his most widely supported track yet. Pete Tong selected the track as Essential New Tune, Yotto’s 4th, plus renowned tastemaker Annie Mac selected the tune as Hottest Record in the World on her radio show. “The Owls” is the first installment in a three part series of releases.
