We thought it time for part 10 on our ongoing series, where we provide a broad selection of tracks from those artists, DJs and producers who have shown to excel in the remix arena. Previous editions involved Little Loud, The Twelves, Soulwax, The Knocks, The Shoes, Bloc Party, Starsmith, The Golden Filter and DiscoTech.
This week a new remix appeared from the French DJ/producer Pierre-Alexandre Busson, aka Yuksek, which he’d completed for the British electro pop act Fenech Soler, acting as a reminder of just how great this man is at putting other people’s music in the blender. We list it below, with a variety of his other work, of which there’s tons, because this DJ is so in demand for official remixes that the library is endless, so we couldn’t possibly list them all, or we’d crash your computer!
What you get from Yuksek every time are floor-ready dance tunes, perfect for the weekend, with a signature beat and plenty of additions to the original work. He also maintains a lot of the vocals, which is always a good thing as far as we are concerned. Having been a big feature during the massive French electro push between 2006-2008, there’s often a lot of the squelching keys and pounding beats, but even his older remixes didn’t date badly where many of his peers did, and the remixes still seem to control your feet more than you do.
