Hard on the heels of Yotto’s debut Essential Mix that was premiered last weekend on Radio 1 by Pete Tong, the Finnish producer – signed to Anjunadeep and known for tracks like ’North’ and ‘Personal Space’ as well as remixes for the likes of Gorillaz and Coldplay – will release a brand-new EP, ‘Chemicals / Second Life’ on Joris Voorn’s Green label.
Full of heady, atmospheric electronic music, Yotto’s Essential Mix saw him showcase his diverse musical tastes, from ethereal tracks by The Beach Boys and Sufan Stevens through to peak time techno from ANNA and Patrice Baumel.
New EP ‘Chemicals / Second Life’ sees the DJ and producer strike new musical heights with two dance-floor cuts that are aiming to cause impact at clubs throughout 2018.
‘Chemicals’ combines skipping hi-hats with a fuzzy hypnotic bass filtering in and out of focus. Accompanied by big room kick drums and soaring synths, you may find the track played in sweaty peak-time sets far and wide.
On the flip, ‘Second Life’ is a progressive, hot-blooded acidic cut that slowly builds into cascades of bass, synth hooks and triplet percussion rhythms, giving the track a euphoric characteristic but not without an immersive emotional depth.
Building on BBC radio 1 support that on top of his Essential Mix saw Yotto awarded 5 Essential New Tunes and 2 Hottest Records In The World, this month will see the Finnish artist head to South America to play Warung Beach Club with Recondite, Black Coffee and Joris Voorn, as well as a headline show at The Bow in Buenos Aires.
It’s out 2 March. Check out his Essential Mix below.
