Kasper Bjørke's new summery album Sprinkles is out now on 12" and digital!
Whether it’s an instrumental club track, a radio friendly affair, one of his forays into the more ambient side of things - or everything that falls in between - the DNA is unmistakably Bjørke’s. Finding that perfect balance of emotion and groove has always been his trademark. And though the musical scenery might change over time, Kasper Bjørke’s sound and vision is clearly evident throughout.
Kaspers new album Sprinkles is reminiscent of a utopian postcard sent from the past. Recorded and produced while spending extensive periods of time in the family’s cabin by a secluded beach, Bjørke reflects on what feels like distant memories; the energy and euphoria from his countless DJ gigs over the past decades.
Sprinkles is rooted in a multicolored sound and filled with light and warmth. The balearic vibes and dream house grooves merge with synth choirs, guitars, fretless and acid bass lines and intertwine playfully into a coherent sonic stream of consciousness.
The 13 track instrumental album stands as a breath of fresh air and a much needed, warm ray of sunshine. Named after, and inspired by, Danish visual artist Luca Bjørnsten’s mesmerizing work “Sprinkles”, picturing an empty, lush and colorful landscape with a large, romantic fountain, perfectly embodies the surreal scenario that we have all become much too familiar with.
Quotes on Kasper Bjørke - Sprinkles
"Bjørke’s newest album possesses the same calm and melancholy [as his ambient albums] but it’s much more uplifting and colourful. He wanted to make an instrumental club album that would capture the energy of one of his DJ sets. (...) After several weeks, he had 13 dreamy house grooves, which he took back to Copenhagen and polished off. Sprinkles was born." (XLR8R, US)
"Bjørke has created a soothing album, informed by dance music but something outside of the main thoroughfare. (…) “Sprinkles” turns dance floor euphoria into a quiet mood. Take the track “Grace”, inundated by acid lines as it is, it also rides a calm groove, melodic leads intertwining with the 303’s to create a passage of music that stands half in the club, half on the beach."
