That was followed by a second album Standing on Top of Utopia (2010). The first single from the album "Young Again" became another hit and featured the vocals of Jacob Bellens, the singer of I Got You On Tape and Murder. Fool, the tongue in cheek self-ironic entitled third album, is another tour de force in Kasper Bjørke’s signature production style – this time wrapped up as a concept album and released on Fool’s day, 1 April 2012. Like a vinyl record, the track list has been split into two sides: The pop infused vocal-based bittersweet love songs of the Hungry side is halfway through taken over by an Overture that leads into the darker and mainly instrumental Foolish side, containing spaced out psychedelic trips and no-wave disco voyages.

Not so with Kasper Bjørke, whose vocal-aided tracks are odd and disparate and whose instrumental cuts are even more schizophrenic. Standing on Top of Utopia is Bjørke's second full-length release under his birth name, following 2007's equally haphazard In Gumbo, and it's full of tantalizing moments that never threaten to coalesce into something resembling a coherent whole. The album's first track, "Animals", is disconcertingly cool and minimal, nicely throbbing electro-pop that nonetheless feels out of place as an opener.

Kasper Bjørke's lengthy career through 2010 had only produced one full-length album by that point, but his second proved to be something spectacular

Perhaps the strongest full-length electronic release from Denmark since Trentemøller's The Last Resort, Standing on Top of Utopia found the DJ/producer creating not merely a solid album but a strong and surprising one. If anything, it had the sense of being the equivalent to the Lindstrøm/Prins Thomas and fellow travelers empire - only instead of "beardo disco" imagining a never-never world of space rock/disco Ibiza, Bjørke looked instead to a wired, early electro-disco that was far more Gina X than Italo disco.

Kasper Bjørke has revealed details of his second album, which is due to be issued in February. The album-which is entitled Standing On Top Of Utopia-will be the first full-length release on the HFN Music label, which was responsible for Trentemøller's Harbour Boat Trips mix from earlier in the year. While HFN may be a newcomer to the scene, Bjørke definitely isn't, with plenty of house and techno collaborations with Tomas Barfod under his belt since the start of the decade
