2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Jan. 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Yuksek is Pierre-Alexandre Busson.
He is French and wants to make the world dance.
The thirteen tracks on his debut 'Away From The Sea'
are a fierce first showing.

We are in the land of big beats and grinding electronica
here and Mr Busson is a talented composer/producer and a
more than reliable guide through his territory.

French electronica seems to have developed a distinctive
voice of its own in a world overflowing with so much good
music to throw ourselves around to.
Daft Punk pointed the way to new-rhythmic-nirvana
and many have followed. If you enjoyed Vitalic's 'Flashmob'
you will probably like this too.

Collaborations with S**tdisco (a typically stripped-down
but good-natured stomper); Chromeo (the deliciously cheesy
retro-synth antics of 'So Down'); The Bewitched Hands On
The Top of our Heads ('So Far Away From The Sea', a nouveau-hippie
pulsing sing-along anthem) and the gritty urban hoedown featuring
the totally wonderful Amanda Blank ('Extraball') guarantee a sonic
experience which it is virtually impossible to sit still to.

Elsewhere the twitchy charm of 'I Like To Play';
the cut-and -paste shenanigans of opening track 'Break Ya';
the uplifting, slow, hypnotic synth arpeggios of 'I Could Never
Be A Dancer' and the uproariously silly funky conclusion
delivered by final track 'Eat My Bear' all contribute to
the general sense of good-natured mayhem.

There's more than enough good stuff here to keep
the party hopping for the best part of an hour.

Play It Loud !

Bought the CD after hearing 1 track on Soccer AM. Reminds me of Daft Punk. After a difficult first 2 tracks it gets into the swing of good dance/Daft punk territory. After a few more listens - it is getting better and better. Watch this space !

Not a bad bit of electronic. 29 Mar. 2010
By Thomas Fornander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had very high hopes coming into this album, knowing that Chromeo had an appearance on one of the songs, but I was slightly disappointed with the rest of the CD. Not all of the tracks are bad, of course, many are quite good, namely "Extraball" and "A Certain Life". But others are lacking in many regards, like "Eat my Bear" and "Freak O Rocker".

I would recommend this album to any fan of recent electronic music, but just beware that when this album is good it's GOOD and when it is bad it is BAD.
THE best electro album of 2009 29 Aug. 2009
By G. Eaton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In a year where electro has blown up out of control, I have to say this album by Yuksek is my fave. I can't describe how great the sound is - Yuksek made the smart choice to have many collaborations on this album, which (almost) always adds great depth and diversity. The tracks are short and radio-friendly, but also have a huge sound that doesn't lose your interest in the short-term, like most pop tracks. The best way to describe it would be: "A look at the future through the eyes of the past."
My only complaint... 26 April 2010
By Ian S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
is that I did not find out about this guy sooner.

There are a couple tracks that don't really do it for me, namely the I Like To Play and Eat My Bear. But overall this is one of my fave electro/dance albums that I currently own, up their with Justice's Cross, Midnight Juggernaut's Dystopia and Vitalic's Flashmob. Overall a great piece of French Electro
