The acclaimed producer will debut an exciting new live set-up on tour in May, previewing his next album project

French-born house and electronic producer Boston Bun is back with his intoxicating new single ‘MAYBE // YES’ featuring Paris-based electronic artist Poté, out today via Future Classic.

Building on Boston Bun’s eclectic, emotive sound, MAYBE // YES is a distinctive blend of razor-sharp industrial percussion and uplifting organ, while Poté’s enigmatic lead vocals mingle with distorted samples to create a gripping melodic soundscape.

Talking further about the track’s creation, Boston Bun explains, “I met Poté maybe 6 or 7 years ago. He sent me a random message on instagram « hey I just moved  to Paris I like your music ». He came to the studio the same day and we never stopped talking since then. We did quite a lot of studio sessions, working remotely too when I moved to London. We would take the time to finish a song and when we were finished, we would start over again.

Then MAYBE // YES happened. One of his best toplines in my opinion; Poté lyrics are like he’s talking straight to you. I literally had chills the first time I heard it. Production wise, we didn’t define any line between our 2 universes. We put everything in and experimented a lot until the magic happened. I feel like we could have made 10 others like this.”

Poté is a British artist, born in Saint Lucia and now based in Paris. He started out with releases on the Enchufada label, then Benji B (Déviation) and Outlier (Bonobo’s label with Ninja Tune), where he released his first album with features from Damon Albarn, Infamousizak and Pierre Kwenders. He has also made a name for himself alongside Chloé Caillet on Circoloco Records, or remixing Gorillaz and Little Dragon, among others.

For Boston Bun, with a full album in the works announced by February’s lead single ‘NEVER CHANGE // LET IT GO’, the release of ‘MAYBE//YES’ is also set to be followed by a series of European tour dates in May, spanning Melkweg in Amsterdam, Night Tales Loft in London, and Badaboum in Paris, where fans will get a chance to hear tracks from the new LP for the very first time live.

For the first time in his career, the producer is set to make his debut on stage as a live artist (having previously toured across the world with DJ sets). His new set up, face to face with an accompanying musician, was introduced earlier this year through an intimate YouTube live session of previous single ‘NEVER CHANGE // LET IT GO’, plus a bonus performance of fan favourite ‘Missing You’.

Boston Bun, aka Thibaud Noyer, has established himself as one of the most brilliant House and French Touch 2.0 producers, cultivating his own sound – house, emotional, dancing and flirting with disco – whose efficiency and hedonism within crowds no longer need to be proven.

Producer on the side for other artists such as Fred Again and The Blessed Madonna on ‘Marea (we’ve lost dancing)’, Boston made his name with a flurry of releases on the iconic Ed Banger Records imprint, it was his single ‘Missing You’ that saw him make his first international breakthrough in 2017. Racking up over 35M combined streams and receiving support from everyone from Diplo and Mark Ronson to BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Danny Howard and Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, it marked the beginning of a new chapter in the story of Boston Bun.

In 2019, his trademark feelgood house sound with ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’ hit the Billboard US dance charts top 10and racked up over +10M combined streams.

In the last few years, he played at festivals like Tomorrowland and Leeds/Reading, tours in Asia and the States, while signing promising fellows to his own label Circa ‘99.

Also respected throughout the industry for his remix capabilities, he’s been asked to rework tracks of Mark Ronson, Étienne De Crecy, Disciples, Dombresky, Amtrac, Tensnake and many more, including Miley Cyrus who performed the remix in her 2021 live tour.

In 2021, he dropped his debut album There’s A Nightclub Inside My Head, a love letter to club culture, released after the pandemic.

Continuing his year in style, ‘MAYBE // YES’ builds on the buzz for Boston Bun’s upcoming album with a typically eclectic and emotionally-charged new single.
