From the early 2000s, through to today, Yuksek has been a hugely respected name in the dance world. Between his earlier albums ‘Away from the Sea’ (2009), and ‘Edge of Time’ (2011), and the release of his third ‘Nous Horizon’ (2017) Yuksek has continued to push the boundaries.
Returning to rising label Sweat It Out, Yuksek is back with a vibrant new single which is sure to have listeners dancing in their shoes. ‘The Rollercoaster’ see’s the French producer stick to the post-disco and house quality he’s become well known for. The track is climbing the dance charts and showcases a beautiful balance and old and new.
Further to his own studio releases, Yuksek has worked alongside the likes of Chassol, Keren Ann, Herman Dune, JD Samson, Boston Bun, Brodinski, The Magician, and continues to produce remixes for the likes of Lana Del Rey, Phoenix, M83, Gorillaz, and Empire of the Sun.
Talking about his return to club music, Yuksek explains “For about two years, after the release of my latest album I decided to come back to proper dance music, I did a few collaborations with Polo & Pan, Fatnotronic and Bertrand Burgalat, all tracks about DANCE, to be played in the club. ‘The Rollercoaster’ is somehow the climax of this; really simple, straight to the point house and disco, with a unique string melody throughout and two drops.” Giving the single a more personal touch, he goes onto explain “I played this all summer, and no one complained. It reminds me a bit of the first Cassius tracks, so with the terrible news we had recently, I consider this a tribute to a friend and one of my mentors.”
