Reseña de álbum

Johan Agebjörn is best known as the producer of Sally Shapiro’s two wonderful neo-Euro disco albums My Guilty Pleasure and Disco Romance. He’s also something of a new age composer, but on Casablanca Nights, he’s definitely in dance-pop mode. The album glitters like an ice-encrusted disco ball, giving off shards of brilliant light and warming the hearts of lovers of slick and slightly melancholy dancefloor jams. Almost every song (save for the glacial collaboration with CFCF on "Memories of Satie") is perfect for the moment of the night when the music takes off and reaches spectacular heights. Agebjörn brought in Shapiro to sing a handful of songs; he also brought in Wolfram, Ercola, Lovelock, Le Prix, and Roger Gunnarsson to produce, and Jan Kask of Lake Heartbeat, Queen of Hearts, and Fred Ventura to sing. From bits and pieces recorded all over the world, Agebjörn manages to construct a perfectly balanced work of dancefloor perfection with a real, beating heart. The matching of singers with songs is spot-on, Shapiro’s tender and slightly awkward vocals are lovely as usual but Queen of Hearts threatens to steal the show on the breathtaking "The Last Day of Summer." Kask’s vocal is a reminder of why the Lake Heartbeat record was so affecting, his appearance here on "Watch the World Go By" is emotion-packed and soaring. Along with the tracks that head for the dance floor, there are a few electro ballads more suited for the train ride home from the club, like the vocoder-sung "So Fine All the Time" and the glitch-y remix of Halftone’s "Stranger," which ends the record in a dreamy haze of synths and chopped-up vocals. These tracks give a nice contrast to the rest of the album and prove that Agebjörn isn’t just skilled at crafting amazing nu-disco classics. Casablanca Nights should serve as an inspiration to producers everywhere as an example of how to do an “And Friends” record the right way. For the rest of us, it’s a thrilling blast of heartbreak beats and sweet club emotion.

Biografía

Género: Electrónica

Años de actividad: '00s, '10s

Gothenburg-based Swedish producer Johan Agebjörn works in a range of electronic genres, from electro-disco and house to ambient new age, but always grounds his approach in a deep appreciation for the roots and history of electronic music. He is best known as the songwriter and producer behind the anonymous synth pop chanteuse Sally Shapiro, whose acclaimed 2006 LP Disco Romance was a deliberate, verisimilar throwback to the Italo-disco of the early '80s — but before the beginning of their collaboration,...
