Kasper Bjørke is the Danish multi-talent who's second album 'Standing On Top of Utopia' was recently released on HFN records to much international applause.
The beautiful, classic-analog meets cutting-edge-futuristic sound of the album has kick started a revolution in post-electronic stylings where songwriting and genuine musical ideas stand in the forefront of tough beats or unnerving trippyness. This remix package represent this whole-heartedly, with three outstanding moments in fresh and addictive hybrid sounds, right in time for summer!
'Heaven' was the touching, haunting song that Mr. Bjørke has perhaps become best known for of late. Now a certain Mr. Prins Thomas hands in his amazing 'Diskomiks' version, which stretches out dreamily over 9 minutes in this honest and essentially timeless re-arrangement. Live guitar overdubs, drifting strings and soft, lazy vocals are all in full effect!
Muzzle Flash's version adds a little more pressure for the dancefloors, while while still maintaining that slower, lazy vibe. This is modern disco house for real connoisseurs of the genre. With tension and perfectly-timed, carefully measured builds and lifts, this remix boasts warm, room filing vibes with plenty of soul.
American sensation Nicolas Jaar contributes his remix of 'Heaven' which boasts some wonderful live instrumentation, airy, open sound design and a free, hazy atmosphere that really comes alive as the track floats onwards.
The original and a 'Bonus Beats' version from Prins Thomas are also included in the Digital package.
These experimental electronic songs, half of which stretch past the 10-minute mark, evolve slowly and with purpose, building incrementally to climaxes as intuitive as they are thrilling. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 13, 2020
