Swedish DJ and Producer Johan Agebjörn (Sally Shapiro) has announced the forthcoming release of his single, Watch the World Go By, collaborating with Swedish producer Le Prix and Srv.ce darlings Lake Heartbeat, with remixes from Skatebård and Teen Daze and a B-side featuring Yota called “Don’t Wait.”
Channeling Pet Shop Boys, among others, the single will be released on April 12 through Paper Bag Records, with Agebjörn’s first full-length pop disco album to follow, Casablanca Nights. Watch the World Go By is pop ecstasy in its purest form. The Teen Daze remix reveals sultry harmonies and twinkling keyboards while the Skatebård remix is laced with pulsating disco.
Agebjörn is best known as the songwriter and producer for Sally Shapiro who Pitchfork refers to as “Sweden’s disco princess… on her continuing mission to bring starry-eyed synth-pop throughout the galaxy.” Creating an intoxicating version of electro-pop, together they had a breakthrough with Disco Romance (Paper Bag 2007), a nostalgic trip back to romantic italo disco of 1984.
Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming Casablanca Nights!
