Classics #2

Following on from my earlier post, another Trentemøller classic remix for you here. Again, really superb little production tricks on the SFX and beat programming throughout, teamed with Röyksopp and Karin Dreijer Andersson from The Knife’s superb vocals on What Else is There? I love the stripped back guitar section mid way through leading to another killer build and drop too from, in my eyes, the absolute king of this electrotech era!

Classics #1

Here is the first in a series of classic tunes that have graced my stereo on innumerous occasions over the last 30 years. You’ll notice a theme and a specific era around a lot of these, unsurprisingly my mid to late 20’s when I was young, free and single, and importantly social and out clubbing. This tune brings back lots of fond memories of that time (2006/2007) aged 27/28.

As a hobbyist music producer myself and actually at that time a student at Alchemea College in Islington, studying my Diploma in Audio Engineering, this Trentmøller remix of The Knife’s – We Share Our Mother’s Health is not just a great tune, but technically excellent audio production with incredible attention to detail. The drop is sublime at about 05:00 in, but the intricacies of the soundscape always inspired me to try to replicate this with my own work. Needless to say, I’ve never come close to it…

If you haven’t heard of Trentmøller before, check out his remixes (honestly, his own work is not all that!).
