Following on from his recent album ‘Polyester Skin’ and from the success of the single ‘Untouchable’, Jacob Bellens is yet to present his newest work – right in time for the summer.
‘Whenever we get together
there’s a feeling in the air
causing changes in the weather
I can feel it everywhere’
…it goes and is certainly Jacob’s poppiest moment to date.
Based on a lush disco-groove, mellow chords and shimmering synthie stabs this will be your perfect summer-love-song with that special Jacob Bellens twist.
A video, which captures the summerly vibe of the music in motion pictures, is already in the making.

Kasper Bjørke’s upcoming mini-LP Fountain of Youth, out June 10th via hfn music, bends genres such as classic house, electro, post disco and techno, into his own melting pot of late night jams – created entirely for the dance floors. It ́s Kasper’s joyous return to clubland, after focusing his previous album productions on song oriented compositions, suitable for home listening rather than the clubs.
Already sharing ‘Cloud 9’, an instrumental version with its dreamy analoge OB-8 pads and 808 breakbeats, Kasper Bjørke has now unveiled ‘Zenith’, a rickety synth-laden track with MIDI-heavy percussion, now streaming with hypnotic animation from Danish GIF artist Lotte Rose Kjaer Skau.
You can also now preview each track from the mini-LP here:
Fountain Of Youth arrives after Cloud 9 Remixes, which featured a vocal mix with Urdur from Icelandic band GusGus (also on Fountain Of Youth) plus reworks from Kompakt’s Weval as well as Italian duo Marvin & Guy, known for their jams on John Talabot’s Hivern Discs and most recently on Correspondant Records.
Here’s the first single out of Kasper Bjørke’s upcoming mini-LP ‘Fountain of Youth’ (out June 10th) which bends genres such as classic house, electro, post disco and techno, into his own melting pot of late night jams – created entirely for the dancefloors. It’s Kaspers joyous return to clubland, after focusing his previous album productions on song oriented compositions, suitable for home listening rather than the clubs.
Before that, ‘Cloud 9’, leading single from ‘Fountain of Youth’ is released on May 20th – and arriving with a remix package, as always handpicked by Kasper himself.
‘Cloud 9’ comes in two original versions: An instrumental version, that with its dreamy analoge OB-8 pads, haunting melancholic bell theme and 808 breakbeats surely will take you back in time. The vocal mix features Urdur from Icelandic band GusGus. Urdur delivers a infectious hookline, with a clear reference to the 90s vocal house scene.
Weval, soon to release their debut album on Kompakt, provides a stunning and brilliantly different take on the original, refocusing the vibe into a shuffling, lo-fi jam, complete with their signature sampled, pitched vocal bits. The Dub, available via Juno only, allows yet more space to the smudged, warm groove.
The Italian duo Marvin & Guy, known for their jams on John Talabots Hivern Discs and most recently on Correspondant Records, brings a beefy, chugging Italo vibe to their main version with a classic arpeggio synth anthem.
Marvin & Guy’s Dub Remix is pushing the simmering melodies into a dreamy climax – and is a sure shot for the open air sunset slots this summer.
Following hot on the heels of “The Answer” and “Hazy”, Danish pop duo Darkness Falls present the third single and title track from their forthcoming album “Dance And Cry” – a noir pop anthem tinged with melancholy, drama and deep longing. Over a circling beat and glimmers of reverberating tremolo guitars that summon up the mystery it’s a torch song tinged by loneliness and heartbreak but also by the empowerment that comes from living life in the city to the full. As its title suggests, it’s not a question of either/or but rather both. We dance and cry. Lush, romantic and heart-stirring, it’s a tune to languorously immerse yourself in, raising high expectations for their longplayer to come on March 30th 2015 on hfn music.
Darkness Falls’ Dance And Cry single is out on February 2nd 2015. Get it here.
Here’s the clip for “Sylvia,” the Danish artist Kasper Bjørke‘s new single with Cæcilie Trier aka CTM, taken from his forthcoming album, After Forever, which will drop on September 15th 2014. Out now with remixes by A/JUS/TED and Tiago Fragateiro on Hfn Music. Director & Dancer: Kiani del Valle. Watch it below and stream Tiago’s remix, too.
