The Absolute Sound Super Disc List TAS Harry Pearson Super LP List
Finally all 13 songs of the classic album on one vinyl release for the first time. Triple-Vinyl edition. Gatefold sleeve. Original sound-quality. NO digital remastering.
After a few years of producing 12" EP releases on the labels Audiomatique and Poker Flat, Trentemøller made his full-length album debut with The Last Resort (2006). The album itself is a 13-track collection of new production work, much of it more ambient and atmospheric than the Danish techno DJ/producer's prior releases. Highlights include "Always Something Better," "Moan," and "Miss You."
He is a unique talent in the current music world. Danish producer Anders Trentemøller, who took dancefloors all around the world by storm last year with funky minimal techno-tracks like 'Physical Fraction' and 'Polar Shift', and subsequently was voted 'Best Newcomer'' in many dancemagazine readerpolls.
Now Trentemøller returns with his debutalbum on Poker Flat, 'The Last Resort' - a beautifully crafted, astonishing masterpiece, that will leave you breathless. The 13 instrumental tracks together form a wordless musical story, almost like the soundtrack of a movie. It manages to capture a whole range of emotions in subtle melodic miniatures, dreamy ambiences, dusty beats, deep dub-tracks and driving groove-excursions. An ever-changing kaleidoscope of colours and moods, 'The Last Resort' without a doubt contains Trentemøller's best work to date.
Although it's definitely an electronic album, it also incorporates live-drums, some guitars and other acoustic instruments like celesta, glockenspiel, melodica and even DJ scratching to create a more organic feel. 'Something I couldn't manage with just electronica', according to the producer.
Most tracks were recorded over the course of last year, often in the time inbetween sessions for his 12-inches and remixes. 'Making these tracks was like having time-off.', says Trentemøller, 'Moments to totally space out and let the music flow.'
It may come as a surprise that on 'The Last Resort' Trentemøller moves away from the dancefloor and instead produces an introspective album that's especially great for homelistening (or listening in the car, or on your i-Pod).
