This week was all about playing catch-up with work and life and all the other stuff that can get put off until later. Good thing I got my boi YOTTO droppin new tracks to keep things interesting! Finnish songwriter/producer put out a brilliant new deep house gem “Is This Trance” which I’ve had on repeat all week long. This one is fat and juicy with light bouncy melodies under deep house dance beats … it’s delicious! This one is out now via Anjunadeep and you can swoop it HERE!
Yotto is one of the newer artists to blossom on the Anjunadeep imprint signing his first Memento/Azzurro EP back in 2015, but that nonetheless shouldn't diminish his importance. In a little over a year on the label, the Finnish producer has put out genre bending explorations of singles and remixes from the likes of Rüfüs' "Like An Animal" to one of our faves Lane 8 to his intricately constructed originals like the recently successful "The Owls" which earned Essential New Tune honors from Pete Tong and Annie Mac's Hottest Record in the World.
Thus brings me to "Cooper's Cup." I really enjoyed "The Owls," but missed our 7 day time period with which we like to post new records. I saw that "The Owls" was coming as a 3 part series entitled 'Twin Peaks' and I wanted to feature today the second installment. "Cooper's Cup" is a flourishing cascade of sound that builds from a rumbling bass line into a plucky xylophone like melody that is as fulfilling as it is entrancing. The record pushes forward with bursting 80's style basses that remind me of the soundtrack for Netflix's new series "Stranger Things." Yotto is here to stay and is someone you should definitely familiarize yourself with. You can purchase "Cooper's Cup" on Beatport here.
