The French electronic duo, Duñe x Crayon are today sharing their new single, ‘Hundred Fifty Roses’, which is out via the Parisian label, Roche Musique (FKJ, Zimmer, Cézaire). This is their first in three years following on from their 2016 EP Crayon x Dune
Super-slick electronics and syrupy basslines provided by Crayon occupy the track’s wider soundscape with Duñe’s smoky vocal outlining the butter-smooth top-line. ‘Hundred Fifty Roses’ touches on R&B, G-funk and soul, drawing influence from Jay Dilla, Romare and Flying Lotus.
Before working together, the pair, who met in 2014, have forged out successful solo careers with Crayon – previously signed to Kitsuné where he cut his teeth alongside Yuksek – releasing two EPs to-date via Roche Musique. As well as creating his own music, the artist has racked up a string of production credits working with tipped names from the French electronic underground scene – Ichon, Blow and L’Or du Commun to name but a few. Duñe, on the other hand, was championed from the off via Roche Musique, initially as part of the hip-hop duo Saje before releasing solo material.
