Trentemøller

Trentemøller is a Danish electronic music producer. He is perhaps best known for his remixes, which consist of mostly fellow Scandinavian artists, including Robyn, The Knife, and Röyksopp among many others. His BBC Essential Mix won “Essential Mix of the Year” in 2006 by listeners. Two studio albums have been released to date, The Last Resort, in 2006, and Into the Great Wide Yonder, in 2010. I’ve only heard the previous so far. It has an incredibly chill vibe. You can really lose yourself in it. The album was released in October 2006 and peaked at #5 on the Danish charts. It was also certified platinum in 2009, something quite rare for an electronic album. Trentemøller has released many more compilation/remix albums than actual studio albums, the first of these, The Trentemøller Chronicles, probably being one of the best known. It is a two-disc compilation, the first being a mix session, and the second containing full-length remixes.

Having heard The Last Resort, I intend to seek out many of these remixes, and I absolutely have to get The Trentemøller Chronicles on vinyl. You can find a lot more information and see a lot more media on his website: Trentemøller
