  • Lyrics
  • CamelPhat is a British deep house production duo comprising Mike Di Scala and Dave Whelan. Formerly known as Whelan & Di Scala, the pair put out a number of digital EPs and singles via Vice and Nervous Records before signing to Dutch EDM label Spinnin' Records in 2014.
  • For this single, CamelPhat teamed up their fellow Londoner Elderbrook, a song-based electronica singer-songwriter who previously provided the vocals on Gorgon City's 2016 cut "Smile."
  • The song was laid down in February 2017 during a three-day recording blitz in London. Elderbrook was one of several vocalists that CamelPhat invited to drop into the studio during their sessions.

    "They had a few different instrumentals that I tried out that day," Elderbrook explained to Billboard. "Then they played what everyone now knows as the instrumental to 'Cola.' There was a lot of space on the record for vocals. But I wanted to keep it going, keep it pumping, so [my vocal delivery] is quicker than I would usually have done."
