Parisian star Yuksek was one of the first DJs to play the Twisted Pepper stage room, and coincidentally POGO's 1st night venue. The night was hosted by Mr Jones and Yuksek destroyed the club with a jacked up set of french house & electro fused with pop, disco, hip-hop & techno influences. He even had a craze die hard French fan dive over the DJ booth on top of him!
Yuksek, along with fellow producers like Surkin, is making some of the most exciting sounds in the new wave of French house n electro. His debut album "Away from the Sea" has just been released on Universal and is causing quite a stir worldwide. Since 2004 he has been putting out his own productions on labels such as Rise, I'm A Cliche & Relish and has also remixed a great variety of artists including the Kaiser Chiefs, Chromeo, Teenage Bad Girls, Mika, Birdy Nam Nam & even Wu-Tang's Ghost Face Killah. He has been tearing up clubs & festivals all over France over the last few years, and in the last year has taken his show world wide (check out some live action in the youtube video below). His most well known roof raisers to date include Tonight & Deladeu2 on Uncivilised World. Tonight he returns to the Pepper with another rockin DJ set.
