After a three year absence, Kasper Bjørke returns to hfn music with a sublime new double EP entitled “Nothing Gold Can Stay”. Having followed a deeply personal ambient music path that last year led to the release of “Kasper Bjørke Quartet: The Fifty Eleven Project” on Kompakt Records, (named 5th Best Contemporary Album 2018 in The Guardian), Kasper has found his way back to producing some of his signature leftfield danceable beats. The Double EP “Nothing Gold Can Stay” explores both the analogue and organic side of his production work on Part A – while Part B reflects on sounds that he would play today, in one of his nightclub DJ sets.
Parts A and B will be released separately on digital service providers and form Side A and B on the full, beautiful LP that will come in clear orange vinyl.
Part A contains four vocal-collaborations with four friends from LA, New York and Copenhagen including a wonderful cover version of Alessi Brothers’ 1975 classic “Seabird” – a track that came about through Kasper’s friendship and musical synergy with DJ and vinyl digger Christian d’Or, who is lead crooning while Toby delivers his signature falsetto.
The 2nd half of the release, Part B, is directly aimed at the dancefloor. Having stepped away from releasing club jams for a few years, Kasper is clearly enjoying getting back to the business of making people move.
