Classically trained musician and electro-pop composer Yuksek (aka Pierre-Alexander Busson) has invaded the US, bringing a flurry of swooping, dance-pop anthem and a brand new record, Living On The Edge Of Time, released today on Ultra Records. Empowered by his previous work with artists such as Chromeo and Amanda Blank, Yuksek’s new album pushes Pierre to the front lines, both as vocalist and leading a fierce live band.
He plays the piano, he talks. He usually raps, often complains and, between moments of utter musical genius and grace, teaches the audience the joys of improvisation. The one and only Chilly Gonzales is back, with the announcement of a North American tour in April, and the promise of a new album, Solo Piano II, coming later this year on Arts & Crafts.
