Kasper Bjørke / Deep is the Breath
Copenhagen‘s infamous producer, songwriter & DJ fizz-kid Kasper Bjørke released his album, entitled ‘Fool‘, 2012 at hfn-music.
In 2010 - while having already gained notoriety as a DJ and Producer - his album debut ‘Standing On Top Of Utopia‘, confirmed his presence on an even grander level. Radio friendly, intelligent and feel-good electronic pop never sounded so fresh. With ‘Fool‘ Kasper continues his wild and ecstatic journey into the future of music.
The second single to feature from the long-player is the casually cool ‘Deep Is The Breath‘.
Now a permanent fixture in Kasper‘s more song-based endeavours, ex-Murder and I Got You On Tape vocalist Jacob Bellens features alongside up-coming talent Emma Acs in the tantalising original.
A typical mixture of throbbing electronic pop and heartfelt songwriting, this first taste of ‘Fool‘ is sure to alight your curiosities and even more. This release presents a veritable mixture of remixes, firstly kicking out the jams with the Permanent Vacation Mix - a full-bodied, skillfully executed re-dub in glorious retro-futurism. Echoing and spinning slowly out of control, its a subtle and infectious remix that draws the best out of the original while constructing an all-new, deeply electronic vibe.
A throbbing analog bassline leads this broken beat excursion which is already proving to be quite a monster on the dancefloors. A crafty instrumental remix of Permanent Vacation‘s stunning mix is also included, offering a more reflective, cinematic experience. Wolf + Lamb‘s Pillow Talk take centre stage next with their remix, featuring Tone of Arc. Lively, organic and expertly produced, their mix has a live-jam feel complete with classic dub-style vocal cuts and trippy synth lines swirling around the bassy, slightly broken-beated groove. A melodic chorus greets us mid-way before more throw-down inducing deepness.
Finnish Duo Hannulelauri hand in a special remix package in itself that is spread over 2 versions. Their ‘Male‘ mix comes in the form of an old-school vibed, analog club killer. Primed for the higher energy levels but built for deeper, discerning dance floors, this medium-paced house cut has a few special tricks up its sleeve. Their ‘Dub‘ version without vocals rides their well-crafted drums to the front of the mix. Radio friendly electronica with serious undertones to keep those-who-know happy!
