REVIEW: Yotto feat. Vök - The One You Left Behind on Anjunadeep

Finnish DJ and producer Otto Yliperttula, aka Yotto, is a dance music star in the making.

Yotto is primed to join the big leagues with the release of his debut album, Hyperfall, the culmination of three years in ascendance.
“This record is generally inspired by the feeling of having lost and found your car keys at the same time,” described the artist. “There’s drama, distress and deep, profound 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 of moody Scandinavian melancholia here that I like in the form of a simple, straightforward club track.”

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Yotto is definitely one of the strongest assets of Anjunadeep family and definitely one of the artists responsible for shaping the current sound of the beloved London based but truly international label. For his first single from his forthcoming album combines his efforts with  Vök on The One You Left Behind. The excellent singer Margret performs the stunning lyrics in her own unique and highly seductive way that seems to contemplate perfectly the deep pulsating brooding basslines, rolling grooves and industrial dark electro pop style synthy lines. The result is how the pop music should sound in the coming years. Deep, meaningful and easy for the ear and the feet to follow its magical hypnotic rhythm. #PureGold Love It[/content]
