Finnish purveyor of atmospheric and ominous melodic beats, Yotto, debuted his first Odd One Out Mixtape. It features music from Yotto and his friends, which the man himself describes as:
“There’s a very bad episode of Friends where Chandler recycles an old mixtape from his former lover. This is that mixtape. Music from me, my friends, my favourites and my enemies. Odd One Out Mixtape 01.”
A part of Yotto’s new label of the same name, the mix explores a vast array of sounds that oscillate from deep house to melodic house to progressive house and everything in between. What I really appreciate from this Mix – as well as Yotto’s music as a whole – is that he builds a feeling or feelings that drape around listeners’ brain stems and pull them deep into the core of the soundscape. It’s as if he is the ultimate puppet master and he’s pulling the strings to give each listener a transcendental experience.
In the end, listeners will have been lost exploring a feeling crafted by the masterful Yotto for an hour and thirty-seven minutes. Fortunately for many of us, Yotto is in the midst of his Odd One Out Tour where we can continue the feeling and experience the power and precision firsthand. Tour dates and mix are below. Tickets can be purchased here.
To learn more about the mix, our friends at 1001Tracklists have an updating tracklist, which can be found here.
