Finland’s OTTO YLIPERTTULA aka YOTTO releases his debut album ‘Hyperfall’ and announces the continuation of his worldwide ‘Hyperfall’ tour.
YOTTO – HYPERFALL ALBUM:
Finnish DJ and producer Otto Yliperttula, aka Yotto, is a dance music star in the making. Having debuted on Anjunadeep in early 2015, he quickly caught the ear of BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Annie Mac, 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 of Solomun, Jamie Jones, Patrice Baumel, Eric Prydz, Adriatique and Joris Voorn, who signed Yotto to his renowned Green label.
With such a bevy of support, 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. There’s drama, distress and deep, profound contemplation mirrored with relief and relentless joy.” Yotto
The album’s final single ‘Walls’ is something of a departure from the quintessential Yotto sound. Eschewing the previous singles’ melancholic undertones, ‘Walls’ features stirring melodic hooks above uplifting major chords – a dose of unadulterated dancefloor joy.
“Walls is a soundtrack to my second favourite hobby, staring at walls. I’m actually very very good at it and I hope it gets accepted to the Olympics soon.” Yotto
Yotto is also embarking on his biggest headline tour to date, covering Europe, North and South America, and Australia. More dates for Phase Two of the tour will be announced this fall.
