Talented young Finn Otto Yliperttula, better known by his alias Yotto, has joined the Anjunadeep crew, bringing with him a solid two-track EP that firmly places his mark on the deep house scene.
With the “deep house” tag hotter than ever among the cool kids, it’s easy for the plethora of tracks that get released every week to crowd out the gems. A name like Anjunadeep certainly helps, but as we’ve become accustomed to with the label, Yotto’s work oozes with class and style that allows it to stand out above the rest on its own merits. Title track Memento is a bold and atmospheric opener, with simple little bass riffs and plenty of cool percussive effects. So far, so deep, but the real killer is Azzuro, which offers more of the same spacey rhythmic elements, but several more bucket loads of bassy goodness.
Anjunadeep needs to do very little to cement their place as one of the most respectable labels on the deep house scene, but giving a platform to stellar talent like Yotto is a sure-fire way to ensure they retain their place at the top of the tree. Memento/Azzuro is out now on Beatport, so get your copy here.
