The fourth release on Yuksek’s new label, Partyfine comes from Black Yaya, the new pop side-project from David Ivar, frontman and songwriter of Herman Dune. For his debut EP under that moniker he delivers two fantastic electro-pop gems, “Paint A Smile On Me” and “Glad Tidings”, both reworked by none other than Yuksek.
Check out Black Yaya’s first single “Paint A Smile On Me”, a feel-good summery tune that will put a smile on your face. Here’s what the man himself had to say about it: “I wrote this love song of longing with the idea that with the lover gone, one’s smile would vanish forever, and any social agreement would require a smile to be painted on.”
Black Yaya’s “Paint A Smile On Me” EP will drop on September 9th via Partyfine.

Paris-based producer Crayon has been on our radar for a while now. After impressing us with his fantastic remixes for Alan Braxe, Peter & The Magician, and Kris Menace, and his collaborations with fellow Parisian producer Pyramid on “So Far Gone” for Kitsuné and Darius on “Alicia”, now he’s back with more funky vibes just to make this summer just a little bit hotter.
Today, Crayon finally dropped his great debut solo EP “Give You Up” on Yuksek’s newly minted Partyfine label. The release consists of three original tracks, and three remixes by the likes of Darius, Blende and, of course, Yuksek. Above, you can stream the EPs title track, which features the lovely vocals from Sydney-based singer KLP. He’s definitely a young producer worth keeping an eye on. Also, make sure to check out Darius’ remix of “Give You Up”. Just perfect!
As a bonus, you can grab Crayon’s super funky remix of Peter & The Magician’s latest single “On My Brain” for free below. Ride and enjoy!
