Here is a quick roundup of 2012 and of whats to come in 2013 !
I released my third album "Fool" in April on Hfn Music, along with three accompanying singles and videos. The first single "Lose Yourself to Jenny" premiered on Interview Magazine and received high radiorotations throughout Europe and the US + got a nomination for Best Dance Release at Danish Music Awards. I also released an EP with my friend Sexy Lazer under the new moniker The Mansisters, and throughout 2012 I remixed artists like Rebolledo, Gluteus Maxiumus, Coss & Stiggsen, Jori Hulkkonen and many more. Hugo (Hugo Boss) asked me and Nina Kraviz to be brand ambassadors and invited us to create the runway soundtrack for their fashionshow in Berlin, some photoshoots for Italian Vogue etc - and do blogposts on their website. As a DJ I have tried to cut down on touring too much the past year but still ended up playing countless DJ gigs + I started my own radioshow on Danish National Broadcasting P6Beat called 4/4 - and here we are, at the brink of a new year that could turn out to be even more busy:
I am starting the production of a new project in January with my Italian friend Davide Rossi - the greatest stringcomposer that I know (Davide played strings on my sophomore album). The music will be accompanied by visuals made by Danish wizards Dark Matters - and the project doesnt yet have a name. But one thing is for sure: It will be something completely different than what I normally do and it will be performed live.
January will see the release of two remixes that I just finished recently - of German hit sensation Wankelmut (coming out on Get Physical) + Spanish artist El Txef_A
In February, I will release the last and fourth single from my recent album, called "Sunrise" - again in collaboration with the amazing Jacob Bellens and again with beautiful artwork by Trevor Jackson. It will be accompanied by some pretty amazing remixes and a video by Karim Huu Do, who did the fantastic video for my latest single Bohemian Soul. Cant wait to share it with you.
And then, in March, I will release my first remix compilation - containing 24 tracks - including a selection of remixes other artists did of my singles - and remixes that I did of others.
I will also announce some very exciting new activities on the management side - make sure to swing by BjrkeLmche for more info very soon.
Much more news about my releases once we enter 2013 - in the meantime here are the first official Dj dates - including two that will surely be among the highlights of the year; Panorama Bar in Berlin and Sonar in Reykjavik!Merry Xmas & Happy New Year!
