Yotto Announces His Debut Album, Drops Lead Single "The One You Left Behind"

Finnish DJ and producer Otto Yliperttula, aka Yotto, is a dance music star in the making. Having debuted on Anjunadeep in early 2015, Yotto has been an Anjuna favorite since Day 1.

Since then picking up 5 ‘Essential New Tunes’ and 3 ‘Hottest Records In The World’, along with over 40 million streams and DJ support from the likes Solomun, Jamie Jones, Patrice Baumel, Eric Prydz, Adriatique and Joris Voorn. With such a bevy support, Yotto is primed to join the big leagues with the release his debut album, Hyperfall, the culmination three years in ascendance.

“This record is generally inspired by the feeling having lost and found your car keys at the same time,” described the artist. “There’s drama, distress and deep, pround contemplation mirrored with relief and relentless joy.”

The album’s first single “The One You Left Behind” exemplifies the quintessential Yotto sound. Powered by a dynamic low-end groove, the track begins with ethereal, floating synths before vocals from Iceland’s Vök lead to a euphoric crescendo.

“I wrote this emotional club instrumental while sitting in a hotel room last summer and always felt like it was missing the last piece in the puzzle,” Yotto explains. “I’m really into this Icelandic band called Vök and was lucky to get their singer Margret to add her tone to the track. There’s a lot moody Scandinan melancholia here that I like in the form a simple, straightforward club track.”

Yotto is also announcing his biggest tour to date, starting with shows across Europe and both North and South America. The tour goes on sale Thursday, July 19. More dates for the second leg the tour will be announced this fall.
