Kasper Bjørke

Danish producer, DJ, remixer and all around music impres- sario Kasper Bjørke has become one of the key figures of the Danish music scene.

Having released on record imprints such as Mirau, Com- post Black Label, hfn music, Plant and V2, Kasper has po- sitioned himself as one of the most renowned and versatile Danish contributors to the international electronic music scene.

Kasper’s third studioalbum „Fool“ will be released April 1st 2012 on hfn music, accompanied by a stellar remixpack- age by Rebolledo (Comeme), Axel Boman (Pampa), Maxxi Soundsystem (Hot Waves) and Till VonSein (Suol) of the first single „Lose Yourself to Jenny“ – out on March 5th 2012.

As a remixer, Kasper has pretty much covered the whole spectrum: From London based App (WYS!) to fellow Danes WhoMadeWho (Kompakt) and Trentemøller – and international pop artists like Moby.

Recently abandoning his A&R chair at indie label Fake Dia- mond, where he discovered and developed acts like the international phenomenom Oh Land, Kasper now has his main focus on  studio work and his business as a manager for Trentemøller and rising stars Reptile Youth.
He is also now hosting a weekly radioshow on National Radio DR P6 Beat, called 4/4 – playing everything from Disco to New Wave, Italo, Post Punk, House and Techno tracks.

As a DJ, Kasper has countless gigs under his belt across the globe, but has decided to play less in the years to come – yet still travelling all over, from legendary clubs as Social Club in Paris, D Edge in Sao Paolo, fabric in Lon- don, Le Bain in New York, Bob Beaman in Munich and Electric Pickle in Miami and holding residencies at Iceland Airwaves festival and Montreux Jazz Festival for the past years.

Kaspers muscial background comes from the discohouse duo Filur (together with producer/DJ Tomas Barfod) that spawned a long line of international radio and chart hit singles.
Kasper has furthermore been awarded two Danish Mu- sic Awards (Danish Grammy) for Best Producer and Best Dance Release (as Filur) and the duo have won numerous Danish Dj Awards (DDJA) though the years.
