Since the Nicolas Jaar remix of Kasper's cover version of Heaven back in 2009, Kasper Bjørke has always curated his remixes with a steady hand and a strong sense of who is the right producer to transform his music into something else - which not only contributes to his original but also adds a different flavor. Strong acts like Marvin & Guy, Gerd Janson, Mano Le Tough, Michael Mayer, Rebolledo, Superpitcher and many more have all made memorable interpretations of Kasper’s work through these years - and now its time for an impressive and brand new batch of remixes: A double Remix EP, once again with a carefully selected and diverse list of amazing contemporary electronic artists.
Prior to the two remixes packages for Part A and Part B the outstanding Tensnake Remix of Seabird will be released in April.
“Luckily Tensnake was already a fan of the original version of Seabird by Alessi Brothers”, says Kasper Bjørke “so when we asked him to remix my cover version (made in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of my last cover version, of the Rolling Stones track “Heaven”) thankfully he said yes right away! I’m amazed that he managed to turn it into a full-blown disco party anthem, which I never would have succeeded with myself. I hope his version will make Seabird fly to distant shores!"
Selected press quotes on "Nothing Gold Can Stay" (Part A + B)
Even the final "Oceans Of Time" keeps the very good level upright, it sounds a lot straighter with pumping synths and gripping house-beats. In addition, comes with cool New Wave surfaces once again a dash of eighties flair. An equally driving and elegant final point of the double EP. On the whole, it is a very vivid testimony of how much Kasper Bjørke has perfected his skills as a producer of electronic dance and pop music throughout his career. (Laut.de, GER)
Nothing Gold Can Stay (Part B) is both a testament to Kasper’s versatility as a producer and an all-out dancefloor assault, made with precision and sensitivity. (Bassline, BG)
