After several years as musician in famous Danish acts like Sleep Party People and CODY, Casper Bach Hegstrup got behind a different kind of mic and is by now one of the leading voices at the Danish radio station P6 BEAT. Along with Augusta Glahn-Abrahamsen, he – among other things – hosts a radio show called “Debut” there. As the name might already suggest, the programme is all about presenting new, upcoming artists and promoting young music with a potential to become a huge thing. Good because Danish likes!
Also as one of the driving forces behind Denmark’s biggest musical talent scout contestKarriereKanonen, Casper generally seems to have a good nose for new names – so, we decided to ask him about his 5 Danish music hopes for 2015. Check out his list below!
And don’t forget to tune in for “Debut” – every Wednesday, between 18:03 and 20:03 at P6 BEAT. It’s a great place to discover new favourites!
Benal My favorite hip hop act in da world. Looking very much forward to their next mellow move. Best productions spiced with stream-of-consciousness vocals and the best flow.
Amin Karami The winner of KarriereKanonen back in 2013. When the world finally gets to hear his voice, I personally promise goosebums and tears. Very beautiful songs wrapped in great dubsteppy productions.
Solbrud Get f”’**ing blown away. This music is primal, dusty, heavy. I get totally sucked in by their dark universe. And this is a must see live. With earplugs. Maybe.
and now to something completely different:
Kwamie Liv Soft, bittersweet tones to listen to alone after dark. A Femme fatale with a really cool EP out there, that’s really melodic, groovy and likeable.
The Attic Sleepers The best melodies I heard last year. Wrapped in a personal sound that may still be shaped by Mathias and Matias. It always rains on me when I listen. So good.
