Danish prize export Kasper BjÃ¸rke comes from the heart of the thriving Copenhagen electronic scene. After more than a decade in the scene and a Danish Music Award for Best Producer, Standing On Top Of Utopia is a cross-genre journey through Kasper’s mature musical mind. Lashings of glittering analogue synthesizer jams, warm throbbing post-disco trips, heart-felt pop songs and dark electronic club tools are all present. With live instrumentation, standout track ‘Young Again’ sounds slightly like a club-centric Depeche Mode minus the dread. Still this might be too soft for some harden clubbers today.
Listen to: ‘Young Again’
