Kasper Bjørke "Young Again (Edit)"
What begins as a slow-motion disco track becomes a different monster when guest vocalist Jacob Bellens pipes in with his rich, resigned baritone. Suddenly, the piece carries a palpable emotional weight, with lovelorn lyrics that track ecstasy, jealousy, and agony. Copenhagen's Kasper Bjørke certainly knows how to produce an interesting track, but it is really the guests that make "Young Again" work: other than Bellens, famed strings arranger Davide Rossi has provided some melancholy swells here and there, and Dennis Young of Liquid Liquid fame has leant his hand with some secondary percussive elements. In fact, Bjørke doesn't really own this track at all, but with its autumnal sense of loss and searing lyrical content, who really cares?
