Inchworm on a Star

So we come to the end of my summer in Copenhagen, a city where the main drag is named after a writer of fairy tales and the main attraction is the world’s oldest funfair. Every bicycle carries a Rapunzel and every bureau a Rumpelstiltsken. Caught up in this world of childlike fancy, I was inspired to make a mix that yearns for long-lost dreamworlds of gilded youth. There is something about a country without topography – everyone is equal and there ain’t a hill in sight – that makes sehnsucht (that untranslatable concept) all the more poignant. We are earthbound worms longing for the stars.
