Last Tuesday, pop-dance composer Yuksek released his debut LP, Living On The Edge Of Time, a record mixing the bass-heavy grooves of house with the virulent catchiness of pop. Now, the French sensation is bringing the dance-ready sound of his debut to the U.S., with a string of March dates hitting some major cities, as well as several SXSW showcases. If you’re looking to catch the RPM up-and-comer live and in person, make sure to check out the dates below.
But that’s not all. Yuksek has also released a delightfully tripped-out video for album track “Off The Wall.” It’s a clip that’ll resonate strongly with anyone who ever did shadow puppets as a kid, with lots of cool kaleidoscopic imagery, disembodied faces and flying money. In other words, it’s entirely playful, abstract and awesome.
