Trentemøller is the Dane who did. He’s been making electronic music of one kind of bent or another for over 15 years, first making his name as part of Trigbag, a live house act that toured extensively. But it’s his solo material that has impacted on the dance community – and beyond. ‘La Champagne’ was a game-changer and his remixes of artists like Sharon Phillips secured his place as an artist with some serious chops. But that’s not all he is. You can hear that yearning in his productions and it’s evident here, a sort of Protestant northern European melancholy.

LateNightTales - Trentemøller (5 Min Preview Mix) by LateNightTales

He is aided on his journey towards the Baltic by some heavy hitters, of course: Velvet Underground, Mazzy Star, This Mortal Coil. But that’s not the story, it’s not where the plot comes from, it’s not where we’re going. It’s just a little indicator to reassure you we know the way. No. For it’s in the dark beauty of Low’s tremulous ‘Amazing Grace’ or even the way that the Shangri-Las’ ‘(Remember) Walkin’ In The Sand’, surrounded by the similarly inclined, takes on a funereal gait. As we navigate the flatlands of your mind, we’re helped along by a generous sprinkling of Anders’ fellow Danes, like Darkness Falls (the atmosphere of this mix aptly encapsulated right there), Ekko, Chimes & Bells and the Late Night Tales tradition, Trentemøller’s cover of Chris Isaacs’ ‘Blue Hotel’, sung by Marie Fisker and Steen Jørgensen.

The "Wav Deluxe" format contains not only the mix in full 44.1khz with track id points, but also each individual track in full unmixed and uncompressed quality.

Copenhagen Midnight Bliss

Trentemøllers Late night Tales is the soundtrack to the Copenhagen Midnight Bliss - the darkest darkness on the northern hemisphere...

by Anonymous. Rated: 5

a superb dark twisting voyage

Trentemøller provides the dark and mysterious accompaniment to an imaginary nocturnal journey through a city, eventually crescendoing in hazy sunrise. Do not hesitate to join this world, but be sure to do it with gusto, without a care in the world, without distraction.
