Born in North west London, Yogi existed in his own world. But having lived in Los Angeles for the past several years, Yogi’s upcoming debut album is centered on his personal connection between the two cities. The past six years he was an in-house producer at Interscope signing a production deal with the legendary Dr. Dre, and an artist deal with Skrillex’s OWSLA to release his own music. These connections became the catalyst for Yogi’s journey across the Atlantic. And it’s these relationships Yogi fostered that’s put him in a position to bring the likes of DRAM and Kid Ink, together with UK acts such as Ray BLK, Lady Leshurr on his debut album for Epic Records/Ministry of Sound, successfully marrying the tone of two of the world’s most iconic cities into one unique, jet-setting sound.
His production credits include some of the best in the game at the moment. Names like Rita Ora, Stormzy, Tinie Tempah, AlunaGeorge, Kid Ink, Professor Green and Santigold. Yogi produced Wretch 32’s single ‘Traktor’ which came in at No.2 on the UK Official Charts.
Yogi describes his upcoming as one built around memories of cruising around London and Los Angeles, the different feelings each place evokes and the tunes he would play along the way. The album is also going to have the kind of bumping tracks that could easily be played in a club.
