As trap music makes its way from maligned subgenre to main stage staple, dance and hip-hop are locked in a closer embrace than ever. Few can claim to straddle the stylistic line as well as Yogi, the buzz worthy British production outfit now signed to both Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment and Skrillex’s OWSLA.
Yogi’s first OWLSA offerings came in the form of the brooding “Christian Bale” and swaggering club hit “Burial,” which featured guest rapper Pusha-T and boosted Yogi’s profile by garnering more than 1.5 million Soundcloud plays. Followed by monstrous remixes from Skrillex & Trollphace, Moody Good, and Crookers.BILLBOARD
As an upcoming producer he has so much talent and potential," Skrillex told The FADER. "It was really rad getting a chance to remix this record for Yogi." Yogi's remix EP, which is out now, also includes interpretations by Moody Good and Crookers.THE FADER
One of the remarkable things about Yogi is that Dre is just one part of his future – there's also the small matter of his artist deal with Skrillex's OWSLA label, a partnership that's already resulted in two great singles; Christian Bale and the brilliant and brutal Burial, featuring Pusha-T.THE GUARDIAN
Trap is a fluid genre, and artists go as quickly as they come, but Yogi is here to stay.DANCING ASTRONAUT
Consisting of Blake, i/O and Yogi- the up-and-comers are here to make some killer moves with their hip-hop background and distinct tastes. Believe us when we say this- these dudes are the epitome of the-next-big-thing.VIBE
Yogi still has a head start on us all, signing as an artist to Skrillex's OWSLA label, and inking a production deal with Dre's Aftermath entertainment, the anonymous producer rose quickly from London's underground to the top of our radar this year. Already unleashing the feroucios Pusha T-featured first single, "Burial,_ it's clear there's another trap god in the making and he's more interested in taking over than taking lessons, with ear drum puncturing production and some serious weight behind him.REVOLT
