New “With You” mixes it up musically for Dutch producer @OttoKnows

OTTO KNOWS, “With You”

After a sizzling recent collaboration with Lindsey Stirling and Alex Aris on “Dying For You”, Dutch producer Otto Knows is back with a new original called “With You”.  Foregoing guest appearances – you’ll recall he got Avicii for one – in favour of what got him a UK pop hit a few years back with “Million Voices”, Otto brings more live instrumentation into the mix (including harmonica, stealing a page perhaps from Avicii) and a bouncy, almost reggae-infused percussion-laced rhythm that doesn’t quite sound like anything else out there until a familiar anthemic chorus by an uncredited male vocalist comes into play.  The well-placed vocal breaks will leave club goers waiting to bounce some more, and “With You” is certainly energetic enough to cross over to pop radio.  Check it out at the Spotify link above.

@Megaphonix adds a bright house punch to “Back Where I Belong” by @OttoKnows & @Avicii

OTTO KNOWS featuring AVICII, “Back Where I Belong” (Megaphonix remix)

Who doesn’t like a pop song about finally being home?  Otto Knows is now a mainstay on the worldwide club circuit and well-established on the Swedish charts with recent songs like “Dying For You” and particularly “Million Voices” outside of his country.  He enlisted the aid of buddy Avicii to weave his magic in “Back Where I Belong”, featuring a heartfelt and convincing uncredited vocal by “LP”.  Chicago’s Megaphonix has wisely added a punchy house bounce along with minimal but ear-catching effects.  This keeps the integrity of the more pop-oriented original but allows it to be mixed with songs that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.  You can get “Back Where I Belong” as a free download above and have fun working it into your sets 🙂
