“A group of wild Finns climbed uphill with a generator, DJ gear and cases filled with sensitive equipment designed for a less daring environment." While this may sound like the start of a strange fairytale, it’s Finnish DJ Yotto’s way of announcing his tongue-in-cheek “A Very Cold DJ Set.”

Artists often film in natural scenic locales—like Ben Böhmer in the hills of Cappadocia—and brands have developed epic, digital worlds, like Tomorrowland’s jaw-dropping NYE festival.

Trading the green screen for the great outdoors, Yotto took to the icy hills of Lapland to showcase a rousing selection of progressive house gems. Grey skies, frosted trees, and distant lakes made for a moody backdrop, embellishing the brooding sounds Yotto brought to the decks. In contrast, warm, deep basslines juxtaposed the striking cold scene.
