Finnish DJ and producer Otto Yliperttula, aka Yotto, has released his debut album, Hyperfall. Having debuted on Anjunadeep in early 2015, he quickly caught the ear of BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Annie Mac, since then picking up 5 ‘Essential New Tunes’ and 3 ‘Hottest Records In The World’, along with over 40 million streams and DJ support from the likes of Solomun, Jamie Jones, Patrice Baumel, Eric Prydz, Adriatique and Joris Voorn, who signed Yotto to his renowned Green label.
With such a bevy of support, Yotto is primed to join the big leagues with the release of his debut album, Hyperfall, the culmination of three years in ascendance.
“This record is generally inspired by the feeling of having lost and found your car keys at the same time,” described the artist. “There’s drama, distress and deep, profound contemplation mirrored with relief and relentless joy.”
The album is majestic a.f. Not only is Yotto an amazing producer but he's also a pretty funny guy.
Speaking on one of the final singles of the album, he had this to say:
“Walls is a soundtrack to my second favourite hobby, staring at walls. I’m actually very very good at it and I hope it gets accepted to the Olympics soon.”
Clearly, this guy is on the path to greatness. We can't wait to see what he has in store for us next.
Catch Yotto on his biggest tour to date starting with shows across Europe and both North and South America.
