Artist Of The Day: Trentemoller

Exactly in the same way that I woke up one day craving mushrooms above all other foods, I woke up one day with a musical itch which no amount of guitar could scratch. Both were urges which I’d never seen coming: especially because of my previous distaste for both fungi in any form and for electronic music and its sub-genres. Like many my journey began with the enigmatic Burial, but soon a minimal electronic producer from Denmark by the name of Anders Trentemoller usurped him for superiority.

The gorgeous “Miss You” and the tranquil “Take Me Into Your Skin” instantly dragged me in, and they provide a soothing soundtrack to nonchalant days when you’re simply content to drift in and out of conscious thought alongside ambient music, whilst the likes of “Vamp” increase the reverb and provide altogether denser affairs which require more of your attention. These are just a few of the efforts from his first album The Last Resort, and his second album Into The Great Wide Yonder contains many in a similar mould.

Trentemoller has recently toured with heroes My Bloody Valentine and Depeche Mode, and with rumours of a third album abound, he could be set to add yet another gem to the so far brilliant playlist which 2013 has built. If you’re curious to hear Trentemoller at his finest, look no further than the video below.
