NEW MUSIC: Kenneth Bager – Sound Of Swing Julius Sylvest Remix

Bonkers. Not a helpful description. But all I had for this. Listen and download.

Bongos, children’s choir na-na-na-ing, acid tones. And then it goes all weird. This is a sound collage. It constantly teeters on the edge of falling into a cacophany but somehow holds it together. Even when the children ask what time it is and the clock starts ticking. This is really good. Probably.

And here’s the video of the original track, which is quite normal by comparison, with Aloe Blacc’s unmistakable vocals. And download listen to a version called Fragment Eight, without Aloe Blacc’s vocals, which is best of all.

Kenneth Bager – Fragment Eight

Blurb: Meet legendary musician, DJ, club promoter and producer extraordinaire, Kenneth Bager. With a successful career that has spanned over three decades, Kenneth is now set to release his new single ‘The Sound Of Swing’ (from his forthcoming album ‘The Sound Of…’) later this summer. ‘The Sound Of Swing’ is more than just a song, it’s an experience, providing the perfect introduction to the weird and wonderful world of Kenneth Bager, where Balearic electronica soundtracks scenes of decadence, beautiful women frolic in lacy underwear, white rabbits are regarded as equals and the man conducting the party is dressed as Mozart. The remarkably soulful, Aloe Blacc features on the record, alongside Kenneth’s own children’s choir and a medley of instruments that all blend together perfectly to cook up a timeless and original melodic summer anthem with an infectious, radio-friendly groove. Think Cee-Loo meets Benny Goodman, with a healthy dash of Groove Armada.

  2. […] Last time we had The Kenneth Bager Experience here I described the track as Balearic ‘bonkers’. But that was five years ago. Perhaps time has mellowed the Dane. Here’s a typically lovely track from forthcoming album Follow The Beat, out on 23 December. […]
