After a rip-roaring tour of the US with his live band at the end of 2011, a healthy wedge of new remixes under his belt for the likes of David Lynch, The Dø, The Drums and M83, Copenhagen‘s Anders Trentemøller remains in the spotlight.
2011 also saw the release of ‘Reworked / Remixed‘, a must-have double CD release featuring some of the inspired producer‘s favourite remixes, and his pick from remixes of his music by other artists. The release was preceded by the mixed-media collaboration with Efterklang in September 2011, where both artists remixed each other‘s songs in the ‘Raincoats vs Tide‘ EP.
Now we are excited to announce the next chapter of that project, with a special Trentemøller version of Gun Club‘s ‘My Dreams‘, featuring the sultry vocal talents of Marie Fisker. With a heavy electronic approach and slow-burning tempo, the ingenious re-working takes pride of place on a lovely 7‘‘ record, backed with a haunting live acoustic version.
Marie Fisker, who ist part of Trentemøller’s live band, provides the urging, aching vocals as Trentemøller crafts a slowly thumping and evolving moment of wonder, inspired by the dramatic synths.
‘You cannot take my dreams, you cannot take and steal from this body‘ Fisker hauntingly cries, as we get drawn into this melancholic and beautiful story for modern times.
A charming acoustic version features as a partner to the full-bodied original, where we hear yet another side to the song - the pairing of gifted song writing and Fisker‘s sensitive vocal talents stand out in a hair-raising live performance.
