Last week we were able to chat with Yuksek about his relatively new imprint, Partyfine, which he described as “an eco-system…some musical artists that collaborate with mixers, remixers, producers who work themselves with other people and visual artists, designers…it’s really exciting.” This description couldn’t be more accurate for the 5th release on the Reims-based label, as Black Yaya (aka Herman Dune & David Ivar) worked with Yuksek in producing this record before calling upon a community of friends and fellow artists to take a stab at a remix package.
Today, we feature the lead remix from fellow Frenchman, Breakbot, on the Paint A Smile On Me Remix EP, which highlights his casual, feel-good vibe with twangy guitar riffs and uplifting co-ed vocals. The full remix package, including additional tracks from TEPR, Zimmer, Domenico Torti, and a dub version from Yuksek, will be available on Monday.
GDD™ favorite, Yuksek, will be heading across the Atlantic this week to kick off a 5-date North American mini-tour, with a DJ set alongside fellow Frenchman, DJ Falcon, at Private Label in Hollywood this Friday. As Pierre has launched his new label Partyfine this year and rumors have floated around about a new album in the works, we wanted to have a quick chat with the producer ahead of his set here in Los Angeles.

The French lord, otherwise known as Yuksek, has bestowed quite the composition of musical bliss upon us. He comes at us with a slew of timeless gems from the past, along with some tunes from the future, including his remixes of ‘Empire of the Sun – DNA’, & ‘Black Yaya – Paint A Smile On Me’ out on Partyfine now. The overall vibe of this tape encapsulates the end of our summer here perfectly. Euphoric tones & strong beating rhythms drive us strait into fall. Thanks to Solé Bicycles for yet another gem of a mixtape.
Another week brings you another set of 10 free downloads from us at GDD, but this time around it’s the always tasteful aRod, and myself, Toks, on Dirt duty for our 126th edition. As per usual, we have a little something for everyone, so head after the jump to grab some quality music to compliment your weekend – we know you’ll need it.
Power duo, Peter (aka Yuksek) & The Magician, are back with a new EP released today on the new label run by Yuksek called Partyfine. Following up their previous two EPs, Twist in 2011 and Memory in 2012, On My Brain once again shows the studio synergy between the two producers. Featuring two originals and a dub version of the title track, On My Brain makes me wish these guys released more than one EP a year. Preview the title track here, stream the EP on Spotify, and pick it up on iTunes.
This past WMC, we had Yuksek slated to play at two of our parties. We were devastated to learn that the Frenchman had to cancel all his WMC dates to illness, so we’re elated to announce that he will finally be performing on the red carpet at Bardot this Thursday in Miami. Supporting Yuksek will be UK bliss-pop sensation Chad Valley, who is set to release his debut album ‘Young Hunger’ on October 30th. Pre-sale tickets for the event are $12.

After the release of Peter & The Magician‘s “Memory,” Pierre-Alexandre Busson is back at it under the Yuksek name. The Edge EP contains all of the great french disco flavor that we have come to expect from such a high-caliber artist. If that wasn’t enough, there are also a handful of awesome remixes from Panteros666, Aeroplane, Beni, and KIM to keep it a well-rounded release. Check out the previews after the jump.
Ever since The Magician‘s fabled set at HARD Summer I had been scrounging the internet looking for the track he opened with. With no luck and a full years passing, I finally had the chance to ask him in person. His answer was better than i could have imagined, “Tomorrow.” This is the newest jam from Yuksek and Steven’s project, Peter & the Magician, entitled: “Memory.” Its out on Kitsune July 9th and packed with remixes by Pointdexter, NSFW, and Le Crayon. Enjoi.
