... Even Though You‘re With Another Girl‘ is the amazing second single to be taken from Trentemøller‘s stunning new album ‚Into The Great Wide Yonder‘. After the huge reac- tion to the beautiful longplayer, which mixes classic Trentemøller production mastery with more of an analogue, song based, indie-feel, it’s time to carry on with this intriguing set of remixes.
Firstly, on a strictly limited 7‘‘, the original version of ‚ ... Even Though You‘re With Another Girl‘ chimes and drifts across the A side. This hauntingly moving love song features spinetingling vocals by Josephine Philip, and could perhaps be Trentemøller‘s most touching recording yet. Josphine is the singer & keyboard player in the new promising Copenhagen based indie rock band Darkness Falls. Apart from that Josephine joined Trentemøller on the spectacular liveshow at Roskilde last year.
Gracing the B side of this special 7‘‘ is Mikael Simpson‘s version, which simply allows pianos, strings and tape over- dubs to bring out the beauty in the vocal. Simpson is one of Denmarks most popular singer/songwriters and already contributed a very special version of “Moan” from Trentemøller’s debut “The Last Resort” for which he also wrote the lyrics. Mikael also joins Trentemøller Live in Concert and we’re looking forward to see him on the upcoming tourdates in October.
e by side comes a hot 12‘‘ that features remixes by Kollektiv Turmstrasse and Pantha Du Prince. The Kollek- tive‘s half of the record slaps a heavy dose of deep, dark funk into the mix, with this ingenious lo-slung version. Post minimal-punk electronic drums meet warbling synths and reduced, subliminal use of the vocals in a delicate and stylish mixture of pop-meets-deepest-electronica.
Dial‘s man of the hour Pantha Du Prince creates a typically high-end remix based on his trademark twinkling melodies and warmly grooving understated beats. The Dub version twists and turns with unpredictable laid-back intensity as a rousing chorus of strings and harmonic elements fuse under dubbed out vocal elements.
