Filur feat. Pernille Rosendahl
Filur is a Danish dance producer duo consisting of Kasper Bjørke and Thomas Barfod. Formed in 1999, they became a very successful act, both as DJs and as a producer duo. They both have separate solo careers, in which they explore other parts of their musical creativity.
2003 saw the release of the album "Deeply Superficial", their second album as producers. This album featured "You and I", which became a classic dance scene hit in the Trentemøller remix version. Trentemøller, also a Copenhagen-based DJ/producer, is a renowned remix artist who has gained international recognition and received a lot of airplay, both in Denmark and abroad.
You and I
"You and I" starts out with a long-spun intro: typical for many dance remixes. Then, almost unexpectedly, the theme is introduced. Meanwhile, Trentemøller adds plenty of sound effects, creating a huge soundscape. Closing your eyes while this track plays will easily create the sense of being in a very large room, the sound stretching far beyound the plane of the loudspeakers.
The focus of this recording is pretty much on the effects and overall soundscape. Not overly compressed like many other dance tracks, "You and I" remains quite detailed throughout its entire duration, the song remains interesting, and the nine minutes playing time is over before you realize it.
