One of them thought he could only produce hip hop beats and the other one did everything he could to hide his soft voice. However faith wanted to join them in the successful R&B duo Phlake.
Phlake is the acclaimed producer Jonathan Elkær and the talented singer Mads Bo. Jonathan is a young but experienced producer who has been producing some of the biggest hip hop hits in Denmark that last few years. Mads has on the other hand never been in a band or performed on a stage – and by that reason most people was left paralyzed in admiration when he first showed the world his huge talent.
Their first single ‘Like You’ was only released on Soundcloud but got a lot of attention from the Danish tastemaker medias. The next single ‘So Faded’ was released officially via Sony Music Denmark and was playlisted on lots of radios and streamed heavily outside Denmark. However it was with the 2nd single ‘Pregnant’ Phlake made it big. It became and still is a huge hit in Denmark and with millions of streams on Spotify it is now officially a platinum single.
Phlake’s first headline show in Copenhagen (200 cap) sold out in 20 hours. The extra concert (500 cap) sold out in 5 days. They have now announced headliners at Train (1000 cap) and Store Vega (1500 cap) and have been confirmed for numerous major festivals in 2016.
The next single is expected out in the springs 2016.
Since 2006, Baio has been best known as the bass-player in Vampire Weekend, the New York-based rock band who last year won a Grammy for their third album, Modern Vampires of the City. In his downtime between tours, however, Baio recognized in himself an increasing restlessness, a desire to explore his own individual voice away from the band and in 2015 he finally released his beautiful solo album The Names, inspired by the author DeLillo.
At the age of 24 Baio was struck by DeLillo, and over the course of three months he set about reading all of DeLillo’s books — among them Libra, Underworld and The Names, his 1982 novel about an American living in Greece, to which Baio felt a particular connection. “And I just realized,” he says, “that if I were ever going to make a solo album I would want to call it The Names.”
He describes The Names as “a realization of my influences and things that I love” — a world quite distinct to that of Vampire Weekend. Those influences do of course emerge in bass-playing, and surfaced on an earlier EP, Sunburn (2012), but what is striking about Baio’s first solo collection is its marked difference to his work with the band.
