  • I have used Euro Sulution exclusively for my bigger projects this year as I see a much better spread and activity than a normal DJs-only promo. Can definitely recommend them for top UK results and very detailed frequent reports on activity.
  • "The guys at Music House are the best in the business.Their enthusiasm is addictive, their knowledge of front line club promotion has been honed over many many years and the coverage their campaigns afford our releases are an integral point to our successes. Every weekend we know someone new is hearing one of our tracks due to the care and attention they give".

Cakin' (feat. DRAM & Lady Leshurr)

Release date: 01/12/2017 Label: Ministry Of Sound





Today marks the release of producer and artist Yogi’s new track ‘Cakin’’ featuring DRAM and Lady Leshurr.  Premiered last night via MistaJam(1Xtra) as his ‘Jam Hot’, the track is available across all Digital Service Providers:


Featuring both a UK and US heavy weight name, ‘Cakin’’brings Yogi’s transatlantic trip full circle. On paper the song represents Yogi coming back with new music, bringing some fire, sending a message out to listeners that centres around an idea of making money and moving successfully, yet promising the listener there’s more to come and feast on in the future. Over Yogi’s bouncing and punchy production, DRAM lets loose with his gospel like hook: “If you think that I’m paid / Wait till I start really cakin’”. Then comes Lady Leshurr’s verse, bringing references to K-Swiss trainers straight from Birmingham and running over the beat “like Suge Knight”.


"I made the beat while I was in LA in the summer of 2016 and as soon as I put the drums on the strings I felt like I was the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland, and any time a beat makes me feel like that I know it’s special. I thought DRAM would enhance that Flavour so I got him on it and then parked it, which is what I do with many of my songs. I then met Leshurr and we really caught a vibe, I really felt where she was coming from as an artist so I left that meet in my brain for it to render. I then rearranged the song again and brought in a choir and went on the journey of taking the song, arrangement and production to the end of the rabbit hole" speaks Yogi.


Lady Leshurr speaks on the track “I am so excited and honoured to be involved in this project.  Yogi is one of the most exciting producers I have worked with recently.”

About Yogi:

Born and bred in Brent Cross, North west London, Yogi existed in his own world. But having lived in Los Angeles for the past three years, Yogi’s upcoming debut album is centered on his personal connection between the two cities. He’s been coming back and forth here for the past five or six years as an in-house producer at Interscope, the label founded by Jimmy Iovine – and through which he ended up meeting and 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, 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, are only a testament to Yogi’s strength as a powerhouse producer and his demand is sure to sky rocket. Yogi produced Wretch 32’s single ‘Traktor’ which came in at No.2 on the UK Official Charts.


Yogi describes his upcoming album as “a driving album” – 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. In a nutshell “I wanted to aspire make something like the Chronic 2001 of 2018,” he says, before going on to explain how the album is a marriage between LDN and LA. There’s also one final point he wants to get across – which is that the album is also going to have the kind of bumping tracks that hark back to his days as a DJ and could easily be played in a club. To kick things off there’s the lead single with DRAM and Lady Leshurr and as the lyrics go, if Yogi hasn’t impressed enough with his work in the UK already, you best wait until he really starts cakin’. Everything is building to that moment.
