The Kenneth Bager Experience – Mexican Wings (Featuring Damion C. Scott)
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.
The sounds remain Balearic but the track – Mexican Wings – doesn’t appear to be a paean to chicken and chip joints. It is a great summery concoction, full of a bass line that ebbs and flows and uplifting emotion. Use this to transplant yourself away from a Northern European winter to sunnier climes.
Blurb: The Kenneth Bager Experience has announced the release of a surprise new mini album entitled ‘Follow The Beat’ on Friday 23rd December 2016, rounding off an epic year for Denmark’s best loved DJ and producer.
Follow the Beat is the follow-up to Bager’s highly anticipated, full-length album, Premiere Classé, which was released on the Music For Dreams label in June 2016. The mini album features guest vocalist Damon C. Scott whose Storm Queen track, ‘Look Right Through’, was a UK No. 1 single, and Damon has added his sublime tones to 5 of the tracks including the single ‘Follow The Beat’. The new album also features collaborations with DJ Pippi ‘Never Stop Dreaming’, and Hannah Schneider on the stunningly beautiful chilled track ‘The Never Ending Happening’.
Premiere Classé was Kenneth Bager’s first full-length album release for 6 years and included the standout single releases ‘Sunshine Stereo’ featuring Damon C. Scott, ‘What’s My Name’ feat. Sofie Gråbøl (known as the leading actress from cult TV Series ‘The Killing’) and ‘La Serenata’ feat Ibiza legend, DJ Pippi. Both Premiere Classé and Follow the Beat combine Kenneth Bager’s passion for Balearic beats and the ‘new Nordic sound’ that is being channelled by his label, Music For Dreams.
