Anders Trentemøller has become one of the most respected names in cutting-edge electronic music. His rise to notoriety was sparked by his early, techy releases for Poker Flat and Audiomatique and has since gone on to stellar highs with his own personal take on the genre, spanning, pop, rock, indie and classical. Now, this special double CD release celebrates some of the producer's favorite remixes he completed for other artists, and also some of his personal picks where other musicians have reworked his music. With over 20 super-slick productions to choose from, this is a real treat for any Trentemøller fan, or indeed a great introduction into his sound -- from crisp electronic beats, to atmospheric and filmic moments, to heavy post-rock mutations and beyond. All the reworked tracks are taken from 2010's Into The Great Wide Yonder album (IMR 002CD-LTD/LP), which fused melancholic, emotional melodies with a more indie/electro-rock studio focus. This double CD packs so many quality songs and productions, it's hard to list them all, yet highlights on CD1 include the introductory swathes of Marie Fisker's wonderfully contemplative version of "Sycamore Feeling," taking us into lazy, hazy hypnotic waves of neo-folk. "Tide" flows in as three different versions: Efterklang's beautiful new remix, a Trentemøller version, and Modeselektor's dirty ride with plenty of lo-fi synths fusing with high-end production. There's also a remix by Andrew Weatherall, and the main man's remixes of artists like UNKLE, The Dø, Franz Ferdinand or Modeselektor featuring Thom Yorke -- all must-have modern works, also including Kasper Bjørke's tender "Does Not Matter" which is re-shaped by Trentemøller. On CD2 we find even more electronic versions, kicking off with Trentemøller's foreboding new mix of his own "Neverglade," before we hear his interpretations of Efterklang's "Raincoats" or the heroic version of Depeche Mode's "Wrong." I Blame Coco provide their brilliantly different interpretation of "...Even Though You're With Another Girl," featuring the new recorded vocals of Coco Sumner. "Even Though..." is also reworked by Kollektiv Turmstrasse providing a stylish mixture of pop-meets-deepest-electronica. Furthermore, we discover brilliant reworks of bands like Mew, Giana Factory and Chimes And Bells. UNKLE, maverick UK producer James Lavelle's ambitious ongoing project, reaches out into filmic, spacey zones with their remix of Trentemøller's classic "Neverglade." Among UNKLE's version and the bristling, tense electronic remix by Trentemøller himself, this track also appears as an instrumental version. Trentemøller Reworked/Remixed is a beautiful journey into the musical world of one of the best producers and musicians today, enriched with reinterpretations by some of the most interesting artists.
