  • Trentemøller - Golden Sun

    Out now: Trentemøller - Golden Sun!

    4TH OF JUNE 
    THE GOLDEN SUN
    WILL SHINE
    ON 
    YOU!

    And here it is! Golden Sun/Shaded Moon, Trentemøller's first release since 2019's Obverse LP, is out now! It's a return to instrumental compositions. It's the newest entry into an ongoing journal of compiled musical case studies exploring suspense and resolution. 

    As “Golden Sun” rises, we can feel the dew burn off, and our bodies become bathed in warmth. New themes hatch and rise, gravitating towards the song’s leitmotif. Pitches bend, morph, and we recall treasured days, lying somnambulant on a knoll, draped in beams of sunlight, intoxicated both naturally and chemically. As the song sets our eyelids finally succumb to the weight of sleep, and we dream of a collapsing star.

    “Shaded Moon” begins with a sequence of percussive bursts into the great wide yonder, while charged musical particles slowly assemble into an auricular borealis. The peak arrives as if to provide a score for the macrocosm reverting to its ostensible state of chaos, after a brief moment of order. It resolves with layers of pulsating synths, signaling the retreat of perigean tides.

    Trentemøller remixes Tricky

    Last September, Tricky released his “most darkly moving music in years” (Pitchfork), the critically acclaimed album Fall To Pieces. Now he announces a remix EP with contributions from Trentemøller, Kahn, LA Timpa and Lafawndah. Four artists known for their own trademark production styles recalibrate and incorporate Tricky’s music into their own sonic terrains.  

    “I was very honoured when Tricky asked me to remix “ Like A Stone “ as I’m a huge fan of his work - and it’s a really great song! I only used his and Marta’s vocals and build up an entirely new song around them, focusing on a melodic and mystical vibe.” - Trentemøller

  • TOM And His Computer by Morten Lundgren

    Out now: TOM And His Computer - "Puzzle", incl. Trentemøller Remix!

    TOM And His Computer drops the 2nd release from his upcoming debut LP 'Future Ruins' which will be released on Trentemøller's label In My Room October 16th.

    The pseudonym of Copenhagen hero Thomas Bertelsen, TOM And His Computer has already released a pair of very highly regarded EPs, preparing the ground for this full length adventure.

    For this 2nd single, TOM is teaming up with the legend that is Trentemøller, whom he has toured with several times and played as opener for his shows. On "Puzzle",Trentemøller works as a co-producer as well as providing a remix version of the track. The original is a spikey, psych/indie/electronic track again with vocals from Roxy Jules. The production is clear and lively, allowing the song to shine through while imbuing the proceedings with an exciting, urgent shimmer.

    Trentemøller’s remix takes things to another level - fat, chunky drums meet vox organ, fuzz guitar and freestyling synths in a riot of colour and playfulness.

    Out now on In My Room

  • Blaue Blume: Lovable (Trentemøller Remix)

    Trentemøller remixed Blaue Blume!

    Trentemøller remixed Danish artpop band Blaue Blume and the result is explosive!

    German indie label hfn music - sister label of Trentemøller's In My Room - marks its 100th release with this one. Way back in little 2009, the label hfn music was born in Hamburg, and made its introduction to the world with the release of the Trentemøller compilation Harbour Boat Trips: 01 Copenhagen.

    Fittingly, hfn100 sees one of hfn’s best songs of 2019 put into the hands of the man it all started with, Anders Trentemøller. His Danish compatriots Blaue Blume’s new album Bell Of Wool is one of hfn’s 2019 highlight releases, and so hfn100 sees Trentemøller remix one of its standout tracks: “Lovable”. The original is a gossamer-delicate composition that carefully stitches together layers of shining synths that gradually build up into a peak, before crashing into a subtle beat - a musical journey. 

    Trentemøller mirrors the original’s careful building up, adding new elements to fill in the song’s sound, before it collapses into a tough, noir disco groove. It’s a perfectly realised remix – Trentemøller keeps the original song’s skeleton and soul, but fills in the space with sonic touches that could be no one else’s but his.

  • Church Trees Trentemøller

    Church Of Trees video out now!

    Trentemøller's "Church Of Trees" music video is out now! This one, like most of the music videos off "Obverse", is made by Anders Trentemøller himself.

    "Church Of Trees" may come out of the gatesounding like a minimalist film score, but when the heavily modulated synths finally arrive, bathed inreverb, and the warped record effects kick in, it leaves no doubt that this is a Trentemøller concoction. Motifs take their time to develop, and are followed by a pleasantly jarring non sequitur. As with its companion songs, "Church Of Trees" narrative is succinctly contained in the title of the album. Obverse: an alternative to what your perception is. The flip side of the coin. 

    Fittingly, the camera shows treetops from below, tossing and turning.

    Out now!

  •  2nd Blood's Turn It Back (Trentemøller Rework)

    Out now: 2nd Blood's Turn It Back (Trentemøller Rework)

    2nd Blood is the project of Copenhagen based musician, producer and songwriter Silas Tinglef.

    Having released a debut EP on Trentemøller’s In My Room in 2018, the man himself steps up to rework 'Turn It Back' and the results are predictably fantastic.

    Trentemøller’s version is a slow grooving classic - out today!

  • trnt by Trentemøller

    trnt by Trentemøller (video) out now

     

    Anders Trentemøller released a new video for 'trnt', taken from his album 'Obverse'.

    In FLOOD Magazine, Trentemøller explained the track like this:

    "On “TRNT,” I go absolutely crazy with all my weird machines in the studio! It’s a pure jam session with myself in a way, quite intuitive and without any real plan besides seeing where this trip leads me. And again, an instrumental track that goes its own way. I especially love a place in the track where a vicious wall of sound suddenly breaks through without any warning. I wanted it to sound a bit like Sunn O))), and drove both guitars and a lot of synths through tons of distortion pedals, and then pitched the whole shit down so it sounded like it came from hell itself."

  • Trentemøller Silent Night

    Silent Night out now!

     

    Just in time for the holidays, Trentemøller sat down and made his own version of the well-known Christmas carol "Silent Night". "I chose Silent Night as it has such a beautiful melody that, for me, sums up the whole vibe of Christmas. Originally it was a lullaby and since I became a dad, Silent Night made so much sense to me especially as it’s my girlfriend Lisbet Fritze who sings on it."
