Dane is behind Ricky Martin’s comeback hit: »It’s crazy to experience«


»I’m about to celebrate some kind of 30 years jubilee. All of those years I have worked with Danish music. To watch the doors open in front of me in this way is simply fantastic. Not just because it might mean that I can write more music for other people. The most important thing for me is that I got to know some super kind and very musical people«
