Since the release of his second studio album “Into The Great Wide Yonder” music wizard Anders Trentemøller has been constantly touring live around the globe, from Australia to Europe and North- and South America. From intimate to all of the important festivals, including Sonar Festival and Coachella (highlighted as one of the best shows at Coachella that year - NME).
Trentemøller's “Into The Great Wide Yonder” tour ended with 2 consecutive nights at Den Grå Hal in Christiania, Copenhagen. Once more completely sold out weeks before, these shows perfectly topped the tour off with great sound and a fantastic crowd.
Fortunately the last show has been recorded on both audio and video and we are happy to release the essence on a special album, exclusively mastered for iTunes.
It includes key tracks from “Into The Great Wide Yonder”, but also three tracks from “The Last Resort” alongside bonus tracks. Even if you’re a longtime follower of Trentemøller, you will discover his best songs in new live versions, which have been completely recomposed for the live shows.
Simultaneously Trentemøller also releases the “Into The Great Wide Yonder”-special edition, now exclusively mastered for iTunes and packed with the best remixes by UNKLE, Andrew Weatherall, The Dø, Modeselektor, Pantha Du Prince, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Efterklang and more.
"Well the crowd, being always an important element in live records, is very well integrated here. Whereas some live records suffer from too loud noises from the people, or only some applause at the end of the song, this fits perfectly here. The excitement of the people is part of the songs and very well adds to the overall mood. Besides the massive walls and the dancing beats, there is also much room for the calm and emotional moments, where the band shows it’s feeling for the fragile details. The always gorgeous Miss You turns blissful chime bells into a monster for the most dramatic scene in a movie still to be made. Over all Trentemøller set a trend in electronic music which is manifested with this live document even more. Many artists follow his path to move away from digital sounds but reproduce and elaborate their studio works in live band versions that opened up a whole new genre. Very much in a band tradition, this approach is even widened here and gives the artist the opportunity to connect digital and analogue sounds to a complex texture of music. This is far from being ‘just’ techno, electronica or wave – it is something completely unique. Live In Copenhagen is an impressive statement from one of contemporary music’s most interesting characters."(NBHAP)
