Hype Song of the Month // Kasper Bjørke Apart (feat. Sísý Ey)
Although Kasper Bjørke’s synth-soaked gem Apart is somewhat older by now (4th single from his highly acclaimed 4th LP After Forever), the Danish DJ/producer has just completed a collab with Director Karim Huu Do who explores the multifaceted experience of womanhood in a powerful and vibrant video for the song. Nine times of ten, Bjørke is one of Denmark’s finest representatives of delicate techno with a strong addiction to European clubs. While it’s not even necessary for Bjørke to leave the dancefloor, Apart follows a darker path into his musical roots of 80s new wave. All being accompanied by slick drum pads, vocalist Sísý Ey’s melancholic diva refrain and an archive video sequence of Simone de Beauvoir detailing an Eternal Feminine.
