DJ/producer Otto Yliperttula makes beautiful music for the dance floor under his Yotto alias. Over the several years he’s collaborated with Karolus Viitala as Something Good and released deeply emotive house tracks for Nocturnal Groove, System Recordings, Green, and SoSure Music.
His output for Anjunadeep — gems like “Cooper’s Cup” and “Fire Walk” — have taken his profile to the next level, helping his cuts find their place into sets by the likes of Laurent Garnier and Paco Osuna to Claptone and Guy Gerber.
So it’s no wonder that his acclaimed track “The Owls” received the rare distinction of being both Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World and Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune in the same week.
Ahead of his upcoming DJ set in the Anjunadeep area at Secret Solstice on June 16, we connected with the Finnish phenom and asked him to share five fresh cuts he currently can’t live without.
1. Ogris Debris – “Lazer Gun” (Adesse Versions Remix)
My personal favorite this spring — distilled sunshine in a killer dance floor tune.
2. Maceo Plex – “The Tesseract”
A deep, dirty effects monster from Maceo — perfect for intense dark room moments.
3. Roosevelt – “Moving On” (Andhim Remix)
Great groovy take from Andhim. The original is one of my favorite guilty pleasure pop tunes from the last year.
4. Undercatt – “Futura”
Been hammering this for months, and will keep doing so for the whole summer.
5. Jonas Rathsman – “Within Borders”
Classic big Rathsman tune; a great dramatic roller that never fails.
