PURE FOUN 006 · YAYA
Featuring a mix of African roots and a peculiar italian style, Yaya is one of the most characterised artists of the international scene who’s always stayed in shape and constant evolution.
Starting at his 17s playing at some of the biggest after parties in Ibiza and breaking into the scene after @LocoDiceofc signed “Vecue”, his notorious first EP for @Desolat-music-group.
Since then we’ve seen him all over the world always close to some of the biggest brands and clubs, from @Fabric, @Watergate-club, @SankeysIbiza or @Cocorico-official to big festivals such as @TheBPMfestival, @Sonus-Festival, @WeAreFSTVL or @HYTEofficial in Arena Berlin.
In the studio Yaya has demonstrated to be a prolific beast, releasing both in digital and vinyl on top labels like @CadenzaMusic, @KinaMusic, @AdMaiora-music, @Earlydub, @OblackLabel or @MonologueRecords.
His sound has evolved over the years, catching inspirations from @ApolloniaMusic or @IO-Mulen. It all lead him to take the furthest step in his career, founding his own label @TamangoRecords, in which he plans to release music from artists such as @djMikeShannon, @RichNXT, @DiegoKrause, @BenRauMusic, @AlexGroundMusic and @JamahrBooking among others, and organising his first showcase at Club Der Visionaere.
We want to put the spotlight on two of his vinyl releases for Tamango Records. The first one a solo EP called 13K, followed by Unconditional Love with a remix from @Cassy-Official.
This summer comes hot for Yaya in Ibiza, joining HYTE as a resident for their nights at @Amnesia-Ibiza, and other acts like @CapadiRebels at Sankeys and some secret spots in the island.
Also at @Savana_Potente with @tINIandTheGang, sharing line-up with @Birdsmakingmachine and our good friend from Barcelona @RickMaia.
"Pure is something pleasant, when a percussionist playing djembe with his hand, something clear."
