Trentemøller : The Last resort of electronic music
The Last Resort, a surprisingly accessible and wide-ranging work by Anders Trentemøller, is a winter wonderland of quiet phosphorescence and pristine beats. Not that the Danish composer/producer/remixer is above contrasts, as in “Evil Dub,” where he allows down-tuned and distorted guitars to run like the proverbial bull in a china shop of elegant, understated programming. But tracks like “While the Cold Winter Waiting” beg comparison to the frosty, glockenspiel-laced ambience of Iceland’s múm, and the closer, “Miss You,” is a hypnotic lullaby sure to receive ample acclaim or the Spaghetti Western guitar and scalding broken beat of ‘The Very Last Resort’ are not to be missed. This is the future of techno. Deep, emotional, spine tingling joy. Nightwalker shifts the gear up and presents us a bit more familiar Trentemoller dancefloor oriented rhythm and sounds. Deep, funky, groovy tune that makes your head move without asking it. A perfect winter companion for eerie nights.
