“Sometimes, at night, I don’t make music for nightclubs but instead, make music for lonely fireplaces that are left cold. I think it’s profoundly sad and fireplaces should always be kept reasonably warm. Maggio is a song for my fireplace that I use too rarely.” – Yotto
Yotto (real name Otto Yliperttula) is back with Anjunadeep for his second release in recent months. Maggio is the latest single to be lifted from Anjunadeep’s new compilation series: Reflections.
Marking the label’s 500th release, Reflections Vol. 1 is a collection of downtempo and ambient electronica from label stars like Lane 8, breakout talents Qrion and Nox Vahn, and new faces PBSR, Kitput, and Vár Sofandi.
Anjunadeep head honcho James Grant explains: “Electronica and Chillout were what first got me into electronic music and so it’s a very natural evolution for Anjunadeep to be expanding further in that direction via this new series.”
Finnish DJ and producer Yotto who has become an Anjunadeep legend since making his debut on the label in 2015. Winning huge support from BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Annie Mac, and Danny Howard, Otto Yliperttula quickly rose to prominence with his energetic melodic house sound.
His debut album Hyperfall, released in late 2018 reached #1 on Billboard’s Dance Album Chart and saw him tour the world and play at Coachella. Since then Yotto has established his own label, Odd One Out, putting out a string of club cuts supported by the likes of Tale Of Us, Artbat, and Eric Prydz.
Reflections Vol. 1 also features an exclusive single from Qrion (It’s All Over), the long-awaited full release of two Anjunadeep rarities (Lane 8’s Apes & Children and Croquet Club’s Slow Mo) and label debuts from Germany’s Kitput, London’s PBSR and Finland’s Vár Sofandi.
Reflections Vol. 1 is available to pre-order now on 12” vinyl or as a digital download.
