Review

Recently voted „hottest newcomer“ in several international music magazines, the Danish producer Anders Trentemøller took a break from working on his almost completed debut album (to be released in September on Poker Flat) to finish a brand new slamming three track EP. After „Polar Shift“ (pfr56) and „Sunstroke“ (pfr61) these new and quite different tracks prove once more Trentemøller‘s outstanding ability to create atmospheric and significant songs in his own, unique handwriting: He adds layer upon layer of sound and instruments which fall into place perfectly, whilst seeming, at the same time, to be dangerously non-compatible. The fascination of his music lays within the contrast between large, vast echo chambers and sharp, direct in-your-face sound bites.The title track „Nam Nam“ on the A1 proves that dance music can be much more than just a functional dancefloor tool. Building slowly, the track tells a story. A mere few, but well chosen, figures and instruments carry on the plot in perfect harmony. „Vamp Vinyl Edit“ on A2 reveals a first glimpse of the upcoming Trentemøller album. This jazzy tune features a bombastically cool bass-lick,accompanied by a snappy brush and easygoing snaps, giving air to an ultra cool, relaxed mood.Finally „Killer Kat“ on the flip side is a pure peak-time weapon with a funky, rolling bassline, sharp claps and hihats, topped off with some tricky gadgetry.

PFR71 in the media

DJ MAG (UK) 05.2006: “The producer who has best defined minimal’s assault on the mainstream finally returns with new material. The title track is standard Trentemoller fare, a dubbed out, glitchy groove that ebbs and flows to the sound of a menacing bass, without reaching a logical conclusion. The more rewarding results come in the shape of the funk bass-sampling ‘Vamp’ and ‘Killer Kat’, which sees the Danish producer follow a grimy acid pulse to its inevitable, albeit rousing finale.”

DJ T: “PLAYS IT!”

karotte: “wieder ein hit für trentemöller !”

karotte: “wieder ein hit für trentemöller aber nichts berauschendes. a1 find ich noch am besten.”

Lars Sandberg: “still shining his sound, love it as always...”
