Anders Trentemøller celebrates his new album, Fixion (In My Room) with a live performance and signing at Amoeba. Fixion embraces the Danish artist’s trademark melancholy and matures it into something uniquely atmospheric and darkly romantic.
Live at The Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever 9/28 + 9/29.
Copenhagen based musician Anders Trentemøller´s talent for heart wrenching melodic moments and exceptional productions, fused with his trademark sound somewhere between indie and electronic, has established him as one of the most respected and admired artists and remixers of this century. In 2006, following a line of 12” electronic EPs, Trentemøller released his groundbreaking debut album ‘The Last Resort’. High placements in several polls for best album of the year followed and established his name to a much broader audience.
In 2007 Trentemøller assembled his first full live band and since then played almost 300 shows around the world.
After two more studio albums, ‘Into The Great Wide Yonder’ (2010) and ‘Lost’ (2013), artist-compilations (‘The Trentemøller Chronicles’ (2007), ‘Reworked/Remixed’ (2011)) and more releases like ‘Harbour Boat Trips’ (2009) or ‘Late Night Tales’ (2011)Trentemøller is about to release his fourth album ‘Fixion’ on his own label imprint In My Room in September 2016.
With ‘Fixion’, Anders has crafted a logical successor to 2013’s ‘Lost’ - a record that in many ways managed to truly capture the visceral live experience of Trentemøller as a full-band. In much the same manner that ‘Lost’ built on from the somber cinematic classic that was ‘Into The Great Wide Yonder’, ‘Fixion’ has embraced the Danish artist’s trademark melancholy and matured it into something uniquely atmospheric and darkly romantic.
Rather than attempting to completely reinvent himself, Anders has used his latest outing as an opportunity to highlight certain granular aspects of his signature sound and refine them into a much more organic - and at times perhaps more song-driven body of work. It’s a record that on first listen may seem less detailed but, as you’ll know by now, with Trentemøller, one should never be fooled by initial impressions. It’s the kind of record that will over time repeatedly unlock new intricacies and offer the listener an opportunity to understand the work differently upon each listen.
The album is still notably driven by the producer and multi-artist’s passion for experimentation and effortlessly succeeds in transcending a swathe of influences and unassuming genres - yet all the while holding true to Trentemøller’s unique, and sometimes challenging vernacular. From the cascading minimalist synth-scapes to driving electropunk, each and every track on ‘Fixion’ is bound together with a contemplative melodic complexity.
