Premiere: Yotto – Chemicals
Yotto, real name Otto Yliperttula, continues to build on his impressive list of achievements.
He’s made a return to Joris Voorn’s Green imprint to release the double A-side Chemicals / Second Life EP. Though the artist debuted on Green last year with “Marisa” — named an Essential New Tune on BBC Radio 1 by the emotive dance virtuoso Kölsch — he continues to demonstrate his bona fide ascension. As “Chemicals” traverses texturized soundscapes, its melodic expansiveness takes on a life of its own, where rousing oscillations flourish like the swelling ripples of the ocean’s morning tide.
Though listeners of Yotto’s Essential Mix may recognize the number from the mix, “Chemicals’” tenacious melodic riffs and propulsive grooves ultimately leave them with no choice but to press “repeat.”
Undeniably, “Chemicals'” intoxicating affect washes over listeners, but as Yotto’s discernable big room kick drums and billowing synths become a defining feature of his art, it’s tracks like these that’ll ensure Yotto leaves an impact throughout the new year and beyond.
