“I admit; mentally, I needed to get away from the new just-for-the-sake-of-being-new trappings of dancefloor culture”, says Yuksek, or Pierre as his friends and mother calls him. “The saturated synth noises, the crunching beats or distorted mayhem; these songs asked for different things. Like melody, for instance!”
Boredom and solitude are two things most musicians don’t wear well. Once detachment starts to kick in, terrible things tend to happen – hard drugs, loose women, broken television sets, you know the picture. But when French electro maverick Yuksek found himself both more or less bored with the self-serving demands of the dancefloor and all too often alone on tour, solely accompanied by his collection of synths and FX boards, he wisely decided to avoid the aforementioned trappings and pour his heart and soul into song.
