Birk Storm (Denmark) – ‘I Don’t Care’ Birk Storm is by his own admission both “new name” and “new music”, but his clarion call is one that we can all relate to: “electro/funk as it allways was ment to be” (sic). While not curating funk for the masses in his Copenhagen studio, ‘The Birk’ (as he likes to be known) acts as drummer-gun for hire for a clutch of Danish bands such as Band Ane and Outlandish – and beyond that, there’s little to be told and much to discover. Signing with Danish label VUF (whose label compilations come highly recommended), 24-year old Birk launches himself into the ether with two singles: ‘I Dont Care’ and ‘Side By Side’ and a somewhat abstract video clip that allegedly documents the moment when Birk signed on the dotted label line. The debut full length drops on VUF in August. More @ thebirk.dk.
