Yuksek

Early in the 2000s, Yuksek released a series of maxis and two albums: Away from the Sea (2009) and Living on the Edge of Time (2011). Those records laid the foundations of a sound that combined disco and darker electronic vibes. Then in 2013, he set up his own label (Partyfine) and toured the world as dj and live performer. As a real studio addict he produced, remixed and has collaborated with a huge number of artists like Gorillaz, Phoenix, JD Samson, Boston Bun, Breakbot, Brodinski, The Magician (Peter & the Magician) and Alex Metric (The Alexanders), and recently Yuksek has also devoted a lot of time to writing for cinema, television and the stage.

His third album Nous Horizon is Yuksek’s great studio comeback in 2017. The opus features the Greek singer Monika, the duo Her, Roman Rappak (Breton), Juveniles and Kim. Yuksek’s characteristic sound, midway between post-disco and house shines through on its various tracks. Yuksek also shows his talent as a singer. His new melodies are sunnier than before; his beats and production more subtle; airy, but still conveying a touch of hedonism in its most club-friendly sounds. A second version of the record been released featuring remixes and edits by Dimitri From Paris, Ccolo, Jacques Renault, Juveniles…

Yuksek collaborated with his friend the French astronaut Thomas Pesquet to make the first exclusive video shot from space. Live Alone title of the clip revolves between life in the studio of producer and life in the resort for the astronaut. That video has a huge media feedback « only footage shot from space with the vision of a cosmonaut who listen to a song! we still can not believe it .. » 2018 is the time for him to go back to the club, with a big dj tour and some new tracks dedicated to the floor, Yuksek released two EP’s recently, a collaboration with Fatnotronic ( Bateu ) and an other one with Bertrand Burgalat ( Icare ) both songs been played and playlisted by dj’s like Black Madonna, Horse Meat Disco, Skream, Ivan Smagghe and many many more.
