This is Anders Trentemøller's second full-length release, after his astounding and critically-acclaimed debut, the Last Resort on Pokerflat. This new double album is not a new studio album but, as the title indicates, an overview of Trentemøller's impressive body of work. The Trentemøller Chronicles includes Anders' personal selection of his best songs and remixes, which have only been available on vinyl or on compilations, as well as some new and exclusive songs. But the fantastic Trentemøller mix on CD1 and the fine selection of remixes on CD2 make this release a great double album in its own right for extraordinary listening pleasure. The Last Resort took the hearts of music lovers worldwide by storm. at that moment in time the Danish producer had built his outstanding reputation on not only his huge dancefloor hits, but also the remix work he'd done for other artists. Trentemøller's work is an organic combination of hand-played instruments and electronic sounds. Layer after layer of instruments fall perfectly into place and contrasting large and vast echoes and sharp, in-your-face sound bites mix with a dangerous but successful incompatibility. This Chronicle presents new songs and remixes and the best tracks and remixes that have only been available on 12", all hand-selected by the artist himself. Artists in the mix also include: Klovn, Ane Trolle, Richard Davis, Mathias Schaffhäuser, the Blacksmoke Organisation, the Knife, Filur, Jokke Ilsøe, Robyn, Sharon Phillips, Tomboy, Moby and Djuma Soundsystem.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The forest , Kink and Gush tracks composed by Trentemoller are very progressive , break beats , the diversity of instruements used in the tracks take you to a journey. However I would not say the same for the remixes , they are more like standard techno club tunes and I did not buy this vinyl set to play on a club. Other then some of the over repetition remixes this is a great vinyl collection. If you are in to tunes that are standard techno up beat , general and at the same time you like tracks that take you to a journey then this is a must buy.
I thought I knew music. And then I listened to this album. And I didn't know music. Now I know a little bit better.
