Kasper Bjørke, one of Copenhagens most renowned producers and DJs , announces his second long-player exclusively on hfn music!
‚Standing on top of Utopia‘ will drop in February 2010, and ‚Young Again‘ is the first single to be released in anticipation of what is sure to be a momentous album.
Featuring the mesmerising vocal talents of fellow dane Jacob Bellens, and bundled along with three simply unmissable remixes from WhoMadeWho, Lopazz & Zarook and Serge Santiago, ‚Young Again‘ is a heart-warming tale of love and life, told through the eyes of a hopeless romantic.
Kasper‘s unique instrumentation and production skills add up to him being one of the most important, young musicians emerging at the moment.
This single shows off his potential for producing hit records, not only with classy, catchy melodies and re-listen-ability but with A-Class studio finesse too!
Jacob Bellens, of ‚I Got You On Tape‘ and ‚Murder‘ fame is well known amongst Copenhagen‘s indie scene, and so it made perfect sense that Kasper teamed up with him, to create this spellbinding, modern pop song.
Kasper then asked Italian string composer Davide Rossi (who has previously worked with artists such as Goldfrapp, Royksopp and The Verve) to perform a cinematic stringsection, making the soundscape of Young Again complete.
To top everything, Swiss graphic designer and multi artist Florence Tetiér and her collective Fortune have created a beautiful music video, to give Young Again a strong visual side as well.
Danish indie disco kids WhoMadeWho provide an amazing interpretation full of live instrumentation mixed with casually dubbed electronic undercurrents. Wrapping the original vocal in a pair of skin tight jeans ready to rock out to house music, this hypnotic analogue version is as individual as it is versatile!
Serge Santiago is a name any respectable electronic music follower should be familiar with. Blending funky italo disco, acid house and everything between, his DJ sets and productions hold him in a class of his own. Santiago‘s ‚Italo Boot Mix‘ whips things into a frenzy, just in time for summer closing parties worldwide!
Remix duties are also dutifully fulfilled by Heidelberg‘s Lopazz and Eddie Zarook, who have been friends and studio partners for many years. Lopazz, who‘s countless releases for labels like Get Physical, adds his classic analogue tweaked out touch, while Zarook blends in a touch of deep and techy minimal house into the mix.
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
