Trentemøller - Always Something Better

Always Something Better


Anders Trentemøller, the shooting star of 2005, needs no further introduction. He has been stringing together hit after hit, most recently the „Nam Nam EP“ on Poker Flat which offe- red an initial insight into his upcoming album „The Last Resort“. Now the new 12“ brings the first full-blown single outtake. The featured al- bum track is „Always Something Better – a vo- cal version featuring Richard Davis - and has a calmer, almost dreamy mood compared to the club tracks he’s released. An easy-going groove, some wonderful Celesta chords (hand- played by Anders) and the typical Trentemøl- ler sound melt with the outstanding vocals by Richard Davis, who already graced Swayzak‘s „Speak Easy“ on K7. Furthermore, Davis is known for his longplayers on Punkt Musik and Kitty-Yo as well as an array of singles and re- mixes. A brilliant track with a beautiful atmos- phere.

Of course the A1 slot is reserved for the „Trentemøller remix“, a true dancefloor anthem. A kicking bass drum, quirky sounds and the „Trentemøller twist“ make this a real sum- mer hit. While the A1 mix is a reduced vocal version, you‘ll find the „dub mix“ on B1. To top things off, the one and only Matthew Herbert contributes his very own interpretation on the „Bubble mix“. He disrupts and rearranges the original sounds and song structures to create a new unsettled, but fascinating soundscape. Big one.
