Yuksek (Pierre-Alexandre Busson) is a French electronic music producer, remixer and DJ, native of Reims, France. His debut album, Away from the Sea, was released on February 9, 2009.

Yuksek, originally with Birdy Nam Nam’s label, has recently crafted some of the dirtiest, most inspired remixes of hits by Mika, The Kaiser Chiefs, and Ghostface Killah (Wu Tang Clan). On stage Yuksek’s svelte, supple physique swoops between his vintage keyboards and FX board and this has set alight concert venues, clubs and festivals throughout the world. Now, the suave musician - anything but a clubber, strangely enough - is poised to let loose his first album, packed full of future hits called “Tonight”, “Extraball” and “I Like To Play”.

Yuksek was born in 1977 and spent his adolescence practicing piano several hours a day at music school before realising that “the only job I could get was as a music teacher.” He was convinced that there had to be some other path to take. A fan of pop music, raised on The Beatles and Gainsbourg, amazed by the early West Coast rap of NWA and De La Soul and – above all – stunned in his early secondary school years by Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (the beginning of a chain of events that would eventually lead him to Lou Reed’s “Transformer”.

After touring for 2 years, Yuksek released his second album, Living on the Edge of Time, on June 13, 2011. Since 2011, Yuksek has been collaborating with The Magician (aka Stephane Fassano, former member of Aeroplane) under the stage name Peter And The Magician. Their first song "Twist" has been recorded on a Kitsuné compilation (Kitsuné Maison Compilation 11: "The Indie Dance Issue") released on May 26, 2011. A 3 titles EP also called "Twist" was released one month later on the Kitsuné label.

A new record The Edge will be released July 18, 2012.
