Yes, his name means "High" in Turkish!
Two or three times a week, on his Myspace page, Yuksek gets an e-mail from Istanbul or Ankara saying “Hey, know what? Yuksek means “high” in Turkish!” The answer to which is no! Pierre-Alexandre Busson wasn’t aware of this when he chose the name by instinct four years ago, partly for its sound and partly to buck the trend of English-sounding names that are ubiquitous in electronic music. In recent months, the pseudonym has been collecting an ever-growing halo of buzz.
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”.
