This is Danish producer Anders Trentemøller's debut full-length release for Poker Flat (now only available as a single CD version). Trentemøller took dancefloors by storm last year with funky minimal techno-tracks such as "Physical Fraction" and "Polar Shift," and subsequently was voted "Best Newcomer" in many dance magazine reader polls. He returns with The Last Resort -- a beautifully crafted, astonishing masterpiece that will leave you breathless. The 13 instrumental tracks together form a wordless musical story, almost like the soundtrack to a movie. It manages to capture a whole range of emotions in subtle melodic miniatures, dreamy ambiences, dusty beats, deep dub-tracks and driving groove-excursions. Although it's definitely an electronic album, it also incorporates live drums, guitars and other acoustic instruments like celesta, glockenspiel, melodica and even DJ scratching to create a more organic feel. The Last Resort also marks Trentemøller's move away from the dancefloor to an introspective album that's especially great for home-listening (or listening in the car, or on your iPod). What came out of the recording sessions for The Last Resort was a very personal album: "It reflects my life, my thoughts, my needs, my insecureness, my longings." A fantastic accomplishment from one of the greatest producers of this century.
