OWSLA signee YOGI had his breakout breakout success with “Burial” featuring Pusha T in 2014. The track has received a haunting new video from renowned director Grant Singer (Kanye West, Vic Mensa, Sky Ferreira, The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar), YOGI teamed up with Skrillex, TrollPhace and Moody Good for a special edit of the song that premiered this morning on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 Radio show. The video shows an eerie dance routine quickly escalating into an altercation in the middle of a highway with former NBA badboy Dennis Rodman.
The original song by YOGI has scored some of the biggest syncs of the year, earning highlight placement in the trailers for the highly-anticipated Entourage movie and HBO‘s new series Ballers. “Burial” was also featured UFC‘s “Road To The Octagon“ series and the recent Adidas / Real Madrid 2015-16 Home Kit trailer, giving the song a long-lasting shelflife that isn’t going away any time soon.Purchase ‘Burial’ On:
“Few artists can straddle hip-hop and dance music without alienating either fan base, but Yogi, an anonymous producer signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath and Skrillex’s OWSLA labels, could be the great connector.” – BILLBOARD
