Anders Trentemøller (Danish: [ɑnɐs ˈtʁɑndəˌmøːˀlɐ]; born 16 October 1974) is a Danish electronic music producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

History[edit]

Anders Trentemøller is a Copenhagen-based musician and producer who started in the late 1990s with different indie rock projects, before he turned to electronic music. In 2006, following a line of 12-inch electronic EPs, Trentemøller released his debut album The Last Resort. In 2007 he assembled his first full live band, with Henrik Vibskov on drums and Mikael Simpson on guitar. Complete with visuals from director Karim Ghahwagi, the ensuing ‘Trentemøller: Live In Concert’ tour brought him to the United States for the first time as well as to festivals including Glastonbury (UK), Roskilde (Denmark) and Melt! (Germany).

In 2009, The Trentemøller Chronicles, a double compilation of unreleased songs, non-album tracks and remixes for acts including Röyksopp, Moby and The Knife, was released. He also headlined the Orange Stage at Roskilde Festival, playing in front of 60,000 people, with a s set design created by Vibskov.

After starting up his own record label, In My Room, Trentemøller’s second album Into the Great Wide Yonder was released in 2010. It was a move into a more analogue sound influenced by indie and post punk, and incorporating more live instrumentation and vocals. Expanding his live band to seven people, he continued to tour around the world for two years. His appearance at 2011’s Coachella Festival was described by NME as “one of the biggest breakouts of Coachella,” saying he “stunned all onlookers and became the toast of the fest.”[1] Trentemøller toured widely across the US and appeared on Carson Daly. The world tour ended with two shows in Christiania, Copenhagen, released as the live album Live In Copenhagen.

Following his second album, Reworked/Remixed was released, a compilation of Trentemøller’s remixes for other artists and other musicians' reworking of his music including Modeselektor, UNKLE, Franz Ferdinand, Andrew Weatherall, Efterklang and Depeche Mode. Trentemøller’s music has also been used by film directors, including Oliver Stone (Savages), Pedro Almodóvar (The Skin I Live In) and Jacques Audiard, (Rust and Bone).

In September 2013, Trentemøller released his third full-length album Lost, including collaborations with Low, Jonny Pierce from The Drums, Marie Fisker, Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens, Ghost Society and Sune Wagner of The Raveonettes. That year, Trentemøller also supported Depeche Mode on their Delta Machine world tour and appeared at Melt!, Dour, Pitch and Zurich Open Air. In 2014 Trentemøller composed the theme for the AMC series Halt and Catch Fire.[2] In 2014 it was awarded a silver certification from the Independent Music Companies Association,[3] which indicated sales of at least 20,000 copies throughout Europe.[4]

Trentemøller's fourth album, Fixion, was released on 16 September 2016.[5] It featured vocals by Marie Fisker, Lisbet Fritze and Jehnny Beth.[6]

Style and influences[edit]

Trentemøller's music has been described as synthwave and pop.[7] He cited amongst his influences Siouxsie and the Banshees, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Joy Division,[8] and Depeche Mode.[9]
