The second entry of my personal Top 3 albums of 2011: Yuksek and his second LP Living On The Edge On Time. What was first presented as the Mega Mystery Band for teasing purposes turned out to be Yuksek’s new album. The banging DJ and producer took a completely different direction for his follow-up album to the internationally-acclaimed 2009 Away From The Sea. Bored with the loneliness of touring as a solo artist, Yuksek decided his second album would be more pop, and more importantly, played with real instruments and sang.
The result is pretty amazing. Forget the robotic voices of his first album. Yuksek sings with his guts and delivers a delightful hybrid LP, halfway between Rock and Electronic music. I chose the single On A Train for you to enjoy. If this isn’t catchy enough for you, then what will be?
