Behind the Composers: Multi-instrumentalist Duo Kaae & Batz
Kaspar Kaae and Brain Batz are the Danish production music team Kaae & Batz. The multi-instrumentalist duo have created a unique Nordic sound that has landed them credits on feature films, documentaries and TV Series. Among others they have been the original score composers for the Netflix Original series “Bordertown”.
Kaae is mostly known for his work as singer and songwriter in the Danish folk band CODY as well as a film composer, most notably for his original score on “Out Stealing Horses” for which he received the Norwegian Film Award (Amanda) in 2019.
Batz, on the other hand, is composer and producer behind the successful band project Sleep Party People. If he is not has touring the world for his band, he is lending his talents to other artists as one of Denmark’s most sought after producer and mixing engineer.
The duo have been friends since their teenage years in Bornholm where they were both born and raised. While in high school together, they shared a love of music and played together in bands which jump-started their long list of musical collaborations.
The two have released albums Basement Tales (2015) and Mosaic (2019) commercially and recently, the duo continued their journey capturing intimate moments through a selection of warm and hopeful electronic compositions with their newest release Lush (2021) through the Copenhagen-based StereoRoyal.
