Kasper Bjørke / Lose Yourself To Jenny (with Jacob Bellens)
Copenhagen‘s favourite wonderchild Kasper Bjørke is back with his second artist album on hfn music, entitled 'Fool'. Set for release on April Fools Day 2012 (April 1st), the album is a playful mixture of abundant, pop-infused bittersweet love songs on the 'Hunger' side, and more spaced-out pschedelic disco voyages on the 'Foolish' side.
Amongst the plethora of quality on offer on the LP, we find 'Lose Yourself To Jenny‘, one of a handful of songs yet again featuring the wonderful talents of Jacob Bellens of Murder and I Got You On Tape fame.
The original version is bound to roam the airwaves with its super catch melody line, and Bellens‘ mature and intruiging lyrics. 80s newbeat and nu-wave meets modern studio charms in this catchy synth-pop ballad for 2012.
This single hosts a variety of outstanding remixes, from the likes of Axel Boman, Rebolledo, Till Von Sein and Maxxi Soundsystem.
Boman‘s dub takes us into trippy, party time territory as he steps up the funk and creates a bizarre and masterfully original re-working.
Maxxi Soundsystem hands in a tight and crisp tech-house version that dubs out the vocal and takes us into pitching, freaky late night wonder. That‘s followed up by Rebolledo‘s echoing drum-led mix that sounds like it could have been dropped at the Paradise Garage with its live feel and raw aesthetic.
Finally Berlin‘s Till Von Sein really out-does himself with his rather special '4.5 Minutes In Essex ‘92 Jam‘. Its a wickedly spacey breakbeat version that any aging British raver will admit sound like you‘re back on the road searching for the warehouses...!
