In anticipation of his upcoming US dates, Danish sound-wizard Tomas Barfod has shared with us a live session of “Pulsing (Feat. Nina K)“. Nina K‘s bouncing vocals cartwheel over double drum kits (One of which has Tomas at the helm) and swell to fill the antique, vaulted ceilings of the recording space. Watch the video above or on our Youtube page.
You can catch Barfod in the flesh as he performs a trio of DJ sets in the US, starting tomorrow in San Francisco tomorrow at the Rickshaw Shop. Full dates are below.
Today is a big day for Secretly Canadian and Tomas Barfod. For us, this is our 1000th blog post! We’re celebrating by jamming the new Beatport EP by Tomas Barfod, an exclusive remix EP of the song “Busy Baby” through Beatport featuring mixes from Oliver Nelson, KANT, Beacon, and a brand-new track by DJ Tennis. In addition, Stereogum has shared a live session of the track filmed at the only rooftop tennis court in Copenhagen alongside the lovely Nina K. Catch the video above or at Stereogum
If you haven’t caught his live show yet, Tomas has a few shows in Europe before heading to the US for a trio of dates in September.
After the release of the stunning Pulsing EP just a few months ago and widely buzzed about SXSW performances this year, Tomas Barfod‘s new album Love Me is out now worldwide via Secretly Canadian!
