French electronic music producer, remixer and DJ Yuksek, nom-de-plume of Pierre-Alexandre Busson, is going for mainstream electro pop sound on his album Living On The Edge Of Time. Inspired by his relentless traveling, he sings about boredom, ennui and hanging around while waiting for the next show. Drenched in Eighties inspired synths Busson tells stories about the unglamorous side of fame.

Changes are that his audience won't pay much attention to his lyrics, determined to dance the night away. Most albums aimed at the dance market fail as enjoyable at home listening, but it's the lyrical content that lifts the songs above mere club night entertainment.
