Having released on labels such as Mirau, Compost Black, Hfn Music, Plant and V2 and most recently recording the hit singles, “Young Again” and “Heaven” from his sophomore album, “Standing on top of Utopia,” Kasper Bjørke played at Trailerpark on Saturday night for a welcoming crowd. Last year was crucial for Bjørke, with remixes of Prins Thomas and Nicolas Jaar, which received support by everyone from Seth Troxler to Tim Sweeney. Kasper Bjørke has positioned himself as one of the most renowned and versatile Danish contributors to the electronic music scene – both as a DJ and producer. This comes after nearly 10 years in the business. He claims he was terrible for the first three but it seems that the last seven have not been so bad.
Kasper’s DJ career has been long and busy and his sets are diverse, showcasing his love for disco, techno and old school house. He has played at some of the best venues in the world and continuously tours to support his releases, most recently his Symptoms EP.
His third album will be released in 2012.

We sat down with Kasper and his close friend, Christian D’Or, for a chat back stage. I’ve been a huge fan of D’Or since I moved to Copenhagen. His “7 Inches of Pleasure” mix is a personal favourite of mine. Furthermore, anyone that plays Loose Joints “It’s All Over My Face,” Willie Bobo’s “Always There” and Pino D’Angio’s “Ma Quale Idea is alright with me. Coming hard with that vinyl, his disco tracks are relatively unknown to many, yet have some serious spirit. You will dance whether you know the track or not. I have a tremendous amount of respect for his music.
