Producer of electronic music, Yakie builds his tracks in utopian landscapes both dancing and aerial, with reliefs sculpted in an organic and electric material. Influenced by artists such as Max Cooper, Four Tet or Rone, his universe is based on piano, synthesizers and field recording.
For his new EP “Hact”, Yakie takes us into a highly addictive melodic techno with intimist and poetic piano pieces. Composed live with an old mechanical piano and a set of analogical machines, the EP projects patterns of appearance and disappearance, exploring the flaws of reality by looking for a part of dreamlike strangeness.

What is “Summer Chance”?
On July 1st, 2020 we launch a call for projects dedicated to musical creation to support the emerging scene: “SUMMER CHANCE #1” is born :).
We wish then, taking into account the sanitary constraints related to the epidemic of Covid-19, to allow bands deprived of concerts, to finalize during this period a project of EP in professional and convivial conditions. Our partner, the Red House Studio, has all the qualities to welcome the winners: a magnificent house of 450 m2 in a peaceful and green setting, an ultra professional human accompaniment with a dedicated sound engineer and state-of-the-art equipment.
Among the many applications received during the summer, our selection committee has chosen four winners: Kids Return, LUNAR, Zoe’s Shanghai and Black Rooster.
The project is a real springboard for these musicians and we decided to renew it with a second edition by launching a new call for projects in May 2021: SUMMER CHANCE #2.
Four new winners are selected in September: Extraa, Saint-Victoire, Serpent and Yakie.
The residencies will take place at the studio between November 2021 and March 2022: intense sessions of energy, concentration and emotion!
The talents of « Quatrième Rue » are also at work to allow the winners to have an EPK or a live show to launch their EP.
