Otis Sandsjö – initiator and mastermind behind the band Y-OTIS – settled in Berlin via Sweden and brings his own special genre-bending, forward-looking liquid jazz sounds. After his esteemed self-titled debut album in 2018, he came back in 2020 with Y-OTIS 2, also released by the respected We Jazz Records in Helsinki and produced by Koma Saxo’s multi-talent Petter Eldh. Otis’s sound is described as an ‘audio mosaic’ fusing together a selection of micro moods, inspired as much by hip-hop and electronica as by jazz. The hypnotising saxophone riffs and fragmented jazz style manage to bring strong melodies and funk beats whilst remaining fluid.
