Born in Portugal to Belgian and Capeverdean parents and raised in Denmark, Erika de Casier initially made her mark as an ally of the Regelbau collective (home to Danish house acts DJ Sports, C.K and Central) before writing, co-producing and releasing debut album, Essentials, through her own Independent Jeep label. Her take on 90s/00s R&B became a slow-burn success story, and Essentials graced Best of 2019 lists at Mixmag, FACT, Dummy, and Crack Magazine. Her second album, Sensational, feels like a breath of fresh air to anyone passionate about music in all its genres, as much influenced by Aaliyah and Janet Jackson as house, garage and techno. With hushed, pillow-soft vocals and production that references turn-of-the-millenium sounds, de Casier’s sound surveys the past while looking to the future.
