Yotto — aka Otto Yliperttula — kicks off March with a slice of smooth, uplifting electronica titled 'Second Life' from his new two-tracker for Joris Voorn's Green label.
The Finnish producer is already making 2018 his year, with a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix landing back in January and regular support from tastemakers, Annie Mac and Pete Tong.
Following on from an outing on Anjunadeep, his new 'Chemicals' / 'Second Life' release marks another step on his climb to the top.
Our personal favourite, 'Second Life' is a slow, proggy affair in the vein of Denis Sulta and George FitzGerald, building up through heady, uplifting synths and pads to a noisy crescendo — perfect for losing yourself amongst the lasers!
"Second Life took me a long time," Otto tells DJ Mag. "I originally made it almost a year ago trying out a new synth I had just aquired. I played it a few times and went back to the studio, added some strings and it ended up turning into a very emotional piece of music underpinned by a clubby kick drum."
