We haven’t heard much from Denmark’s Under Byen since their 2006 record Samme Stof Som Stof brought their adventurous brand of art-pop to our attention. Now Under Byen (Danish for “under the city”) has a new record and with it a new remix of the title track “Alt Er Tabt” from fellow Danish producer Kasper Bjørke (pictured above). From the onset of the remix, it is clear that Bjørke is not trying to be subtle—this is a house track through and through. A driving bassline is shortly followed by a cowbell, and accompanying percussion carry Under Byen’s sparse Danish lyrics. After sticking with the lyrics for about a minute and a half, Bjørke brings in a fat, meaty synth line, breaks the track down, and then gives you what you’ve been waiting for: some funky Danish instrumental house.
