In just a few years, French electronic artist Yuksek has managed to become one of the most respected producers in the French scene, alongside acts such as Justice, Daft Punk, Sebastian, or his friends from his home city of Reims, (DJ) Brodinski and The Shoes.
Discovered in the middle of the last decade with his electro rock combo Klanguage, Yuksek then became a solo act and this was his avenue to fame, first through smashing remixes, then with his first solo album “Away from the Sea”.
On his debut album, Yuksek (Pierre Alexandre BUSSON) also showed his talent for song-writing, and for composing electro productions with a pop twist (which are evident on his collaborations with Shit Disco, Amanda Blank (on the single “Extraball”) and the indie act The Bewitched Hands.
Yuksek is also known for his amazing live performances (standing alone with his mic, keyboards, & computer). His show has travelled around the globe and taken in the biggest clubs & festivals (Transmusicales of Rennes, Sonar in Spain, Global Gathering in the UK, Parklife in Australia, Summer Sonic in Japan…).
Yuksek's new album “Living on the Edge of Time” is due for release on the 4th July.
On this album, Yuksek sings all the vocals & offers a poppier sound, keeping the machines edgy, sharp, and dance driven. On stage, Yuksek will now perform with two extra musicians.
This playlist was put together by Yuksek as a collection of his favourite tracks - enjoy!
