1. Vitalic returns to SF with an all new live performance in celebration of his upcoming lp, Rave Age!
    Vitalic’s third album Rave Age does not mess around. The French producer has made a beast of a record that takes the laser-guided disco for which he’s known to an altogether wilder but no less euphoric place. This is a savage and carefree statement from a dancefloor visionary who’s spent the last decade redefining electronic music in his own particular fashion and has decided, as only he can, to keep things simple.

    “With this album I really wanted to play the songs live,” says Pascal Arbez-Nicolas from his home in Dijon. “The music on my last album Flashmob was relaxed and it was difficult to work the tracks into the live set. This time I was really thinking about the show. I was not thinking about the press or hipsters. I make my stuff and the point is to make some funny stuff and to play it live – voila.”

  2. On Saturday, October 19th, Mighty and Blasthaus are proud to present a very special and rare night of music with Yuksek (Ultra music / Barclay / Savoir Faire / France). Over the course of two studio albums and a run of spectacular remixes, he has made a name for himself as one of the coolest electronic artists - and a must see performer and DJ. Opening set will be performed by Nolan Gray (blasthaus) beginning at 10pm.

    Yuksek (Pierre-Alexandre Busson) is a French electronic music producer, remixer, composer and DJ. He started his career under the name Yuksek after 10 years learning piano at The Conservatoire and playing in several bands. He gained popularity as a DJ all over the world and later with his band.

    His debut album, ‘Away from the Sea’, was released in 2009. This album includes the singles ‘Tonight‘ and ‘Extraball’ and received a lot of audience and media attention. Last year, Yuksek released his second album ‘Living on the Edge of Time’ after 2 years touring. This album took a pop direction but Yuksek’s electronic flow was still there.

    In the same time he was working on his own productions: Yuksek produced Birdy Nam Nam second album ‘Manual For Successful Rioting’ in 2009, The Bewitched Hands debut album ‘Birds And Drums’ in 2010 and is now working on Juveniles debut album (a French electro-pop band from France).

    Also known as one of the front runners of the new wave of French electro, Yuksek was (and still is) in demand for remixes and has done many for artists such as Gossip, Phoenix, Gorillaz, Lady Gaga, Oh Land, Chromeo, Mika, The Shoes, The Young Professionals, First Serve feat. De La Soul, Moby, Amanda Blank, Zombie Nation, The Prodigy and so on…

    Yuksek has also been involved in many other musical projects such as Girlfriend (with Clément Daquin), The Krays (with Brodinski) and Peter & The Magician (with Stephen Fasano, ex-Aeroplane). He released 2 EPs under Peter & The Magician on Kitsuné with dancefloor hits ‘Twist’ (2011) and ‘Memory’ (2012).

    He’s also one of the founder of Elektricity Festival, an electronic music festival based in Reims in front of the famous cathedral. Elektricity festival 2012 edition was the 10th, successful and… sold out.
