Yotto cements nuance in double-faced EP, ‘The Valley’
Following Laudic-assisted single “Skin,” Yotto cements his second release of 2022, The Valley. Delivered on his own Odd One Out imprint, the latest EP brings forth club-heavy production in grace and subtlety.
Providing a nuanced contrast of his evocative sound, the two-tracker output embodies a double-faced execution of Yotto’s consistency as a producer. Intrinsically dance-minded, “Moving On” boasts minimalist with its driving four-on-the-floor foundations and atmospheric overlay. Catalyzed by the vigor of an omnipresent loop, the lead track trades off between zippy embellishments and signature synths. Counterpart “The Valley” presents a more melodically tuned approach as signature elements from Yotto’s toolbox—resonant brass, incandescent arpeggiators, and polished drums—take a reiterated stance. Gleaned with pristine finish, The Valley showcases the Odd One Out boss’ ever-evolving dynamism as an artist driven by both craft and curatorial senses.
