Between the sterling label debuts for Stealth Records and Refune Records alike, Sweden’s Otto Knows has brought a considerable edge of melodic stamina to Swedish Dance music of late. Off the back his recent remix duties for Dada Life’s ‘Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker‘, the protégé of Sebastian Ingrosso takes on the hotly anticipated new of single London Electro trooper Burns entitled ‘Lies’.
Ditching the original’s warmer analogue imperfections for fluid peak time energy, Otto Jettman’s signature lead work and peak time energy work in considerable unison with the original’s spine tingling top line. In one of the most distinctive additions to his small yet quality output of productions, the rising Swede proves that that his nations musical legacy can still conjure a few sharp surprises.
