About Otto Knows

Combining progressive house with pop, Swedish DJ and producer Otto Knows has scored several international chart hits and collaborated with Britney Spears, Avicii, and Sébastian Ingrosso. He broke through with the ecstatic "Million Voices" in 2012, then reached the Swedish Top Ten with 2015's "Next to Me" and "Dying for You," a 2016 collaboration with Lindsey Stirling and Alex Aris.
Otto Jettmann first fell for house music when he turned 16 and explored Stockholm's wealth of underground dance clubs. He set out to become a DJ, but in later years he hung with Avicii and the members of Swedish House Mafia, successful producers who influenced Otto to try his hand at remixing. His remix of Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" created a buzz in 2010, the same year that Otto joined Avicii and Oliver Ingrosso on their collaborative single "iTrack." A successful remix of Dada Life's 2011 single "Kick Out the Epic Motherfucker" followed, and in 2012 he launched his own solo career with the single "Million Voices." The track dominated EDM clubs across Europe and crossed over to the pop charts in Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Otto co-wrote and co-produced Britney Spears' 2013 single "Work Bitch," then released his second solo tune, "Parachute," in 2014. "Next to Me" arrived in 2015, landing Otto his first Swedish Top Ten hit. "Dying with You," which featured Lindsey Stirling and Alex Aris, also reached the Top Ten in 2016, and the Avicii collaboration "Back Where I Belong" hit the Top 40. Otto released his solo single "With You" in 2017 and remixed Avicii's "Without You" the same year. "Friends" appeared at the end of 2017, and after taking a break in 2018, Otto returned with 2019 single "One in a Million," followed by "Something for Nothing" (with Klahr) and "About You." ~ David Jeffries
