Yotto has become one of the most exciting new-comers to surface in the global house and techno scene. Ahead of his return to SW4 this year we caught up with him to discuss what he's been up to and learn a bit more about his rise to the top.
How are you feeling about coming back to London and playing again at SW4 after your debut last year?
Yea it feels great I had such a good experience last year, and this year I’m really excited to be on the B.Traits stage which has such a good line up. I think I’m just going to hang around that stage all day.
It must be amazing to have reached a point where you can look at the line up and see yourself amongst all those huge acts and alongside people like John Digweed which you have hailed to be one of your biggest influences…
Yes of course, in the last couple of years time has been moving really quickly, when I look back and remember myself in my room as a kid listening to guys like Digweed I keep getting surprised and being super impressed when I see myself on these line ups.
With regards to London, can you tell us a bit about your experiences playing in the city?
I’ve been coming to London quite frequently over the past couple of years and it was actually my first gig away from my home country Finland when I started this whole Yotto thing which was at Fire. There’s never been a bad party in London so I always look forward to going back and playing there.
