Trentemøller’s recent album opus Lost already served as the logical continuation of his varied work & delivered his signature sound intact, yet it really didn’t sound like anything he’d ever produced before. Streamlined, song-structured + guitar-driven, Lost boasted a dozen tracks, each offering something of interest for anyone who has ever been a fan of the Copenhagen producer.
As original as it is classic, Lost mixed the tried-&-tested with all sorts of sonic surprises, merging the extrovert & introvert qualities the man has in his command. Also notable for being his most collaborative effort yet, Lost paired him with a vibrant & varied cast of guests – the legendary duo Low, Jonny Pierce from The Drums, Marie Fisker, Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens, Ghost Society + Sune Wagner of The Raveonettes.
Now the new Lost Reworks release gleefully rips up the rule book again, as Trentemøller is joined by some carefully-chosen conspirators – Toydrum (aka James Griffith + Pablo Clements of UNKLE), Jenny Wilson, T.O.M. & His Computer, Unkwon, Pinkunoizu + Trentemøller himself – in dismantling the intricate musical tapestry of the album, recon-textualising the instrumental experimentation, the trashed analog consoles, & the entire sweep of influences, from krautrock to classical.
