Podcast 135: Trentemøller
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Denmark's Trentemøller initially made a name for himself by skating the line between minimal techno and and electro-tinged house, often crafting epic songs that catered to both the mind and the body. In 2010, however, Trentemøller is garnering attention for the severe left turn taken on his second album, Into the Great Wide Yonder. The Copenhagen-based artist has headed into darker territory, relishing in psychedelic dirge and more organic sounds, and this new style is reflected strongly on this exclusive mix he completed for XLR8R. Segueing from pulsing beats into guitar squall and thick distortion before dabbling into druggy wonk and cathartic pop, Trentemøller has assembled a mix that's a far cry from the average night at the club.
