Info: Copenhagen based Kasper Bjørke has released his music on labels like Hfn Music, Plant Music, We Love This, Fine, etc. and has remixed everything from Trentemøller, WhoMadeWho, Visti & Meyland (Eskimo) to The Ting Tings and FM Belfast. Kasper has recently launched the touring party concept Superbacon as well as the new production outfit “Bjørke & Barfod”, releasing their first 12” on Tensnake´s label Mirau together with his old studio buddy Tomas Barfod (Get Physical/Gomma/Tartelet). Kaspers own 2nd solo album “Standing On Top of Utopia” was released in February 2010 on Hfn and instant became a darling with the international press. Dazed & Confused, Nylon Magazine, Artrocker, Time Out NYC, Dj Mag as well as numerous blogs like Big Stereo and Dummy were full of praises. Especially the singles Young Again, Heaven and Alcatraz gained a lot of hype and chartings in clubland as well. The Jimpster remix reached Number 1 on Beatport Deephouse chart and stayed there for more than 3 weeks. Other remixers contributing to the albums singles include Serge Santiago, WhoMadeWho, Prins Thomas, Nicolas Jaar, Lopazz & Zarook, Kenton Slash Demon, Zombie Disco Squad and Muzzle Flash. However, this new 12″ release “Go Away Song” on Compost Black, is only the 2nd release as “Kasper Bjørke and His Friendly Ghost” – Kaspers own solo alter ego for the more minimal techno/house releases and remixes. “Go Away Song” features Danish singer Josephine Philip and appears as quite a dark and emotional piece of housemusic – but with the weird loops and beautiful lead vocals by Josephine, as well as the percussive parts and bass synth elements, there is surely crowd controlling potential for the late night sets as well. Wareika has done an effective remix with their trademark of quirky guitars and synths and Danish new talent Holtoug takes the track in a whole different direction with some highly musical inputs.
