Whether destroying the DJ decks overlooking dance floors around the globe or serving us strobe lit life on original fires, “Dying For You,” “Next to Me,” “Million Voices” and “Not Alone,” Swedish based house DJ Otto Knows (real name–Otto Jettmann), um, knows how to give it to us and give it to us hard with anything he has his headphones in.
Falling hard for the love of that dear, sweet house music at the young age of sixteen, Otto first found his way when he began spinning it out in Stockholm‘s underground club scene. In record(s) time, he made quite a name for himself and in a chance meeting became instant beat buds with fellow Swedish DJ, Avicii, as well as the esteemed members of Swedish House Mafia. (Maxwell, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso).
Together, all of these gentlemen including Knows would invigorate the Swedish club scene and bring tall over to the Billboard Dance Charts, whether on a dashing original fire or dance-all-f#$king night worthy remix. Among Knows’ long list of rewires and refires are his turn at Dada Life’s “Kick Out the Epic Motherfucker,” Imogen Heap’s “Hide & Seek” and “iTrack,” a collaborative thunder with Avicii and Oliver Ingrosso, plus seriously a whole big ol’ milk crate more.
And in case you’re wondering after getting lost in some of his most bangin’ bangers…DJ Otto Knows isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
