When his debut album 'The Last Resort' took the world by storm in 2006, Anders Trentemoller already had established his name as one of the finest talents of electronic music. The Copenhagen based Danish producer and multi instrumentalist started out with a number of yet classic single productions. In February 2005 Berlin producer and DJ Steve Bug released the Trentemoller 12-inch 'Physical Fraction' on his brand new label Audiomatique. It became one of the summer anthems of 2005 and was followed by three excellent releases on Bug's main label Poker Flat: 'Polar Shift', 'Sunstroke' and 'Nam Nam'. Trentemoller's fresh sound and quality production gave a new twist to the upcoming minimal techno-sound and consolidated his reputation as one of the hottest producers of the year. But even though he excelled at writing scorching techno-grooves, Trentemoller felt the need to expand his horizon and show the world another side of his musical personality. The result with his debut album 'The Last Resort' (2006), a beautifully crafted masterpiece, that left the listener breathless. The 13 instrumental tracks together form a wordless musical story, almost like the soundtrack of a movie. The album manages to capture a whole range of emotions in subtle melodic miniatures, dreamy ambiences, dusty beats, deep dub-tracks and driving groove-excursions. An ever-changing kaleidoscope of colours and moods, 'The Last Resort' struck a chord with new audiences all around the world and became a huge, international hit and earned a number of music awards as well as the 'album of the year in various magazines. In 2007 followed two vocal singles taken from the album: 'Always Something Better' (featuring Richard Davis) and 'Moan' (with Danish singer Ane Trolle). In the summer of 2007 Anders started a very special tour: 'Trentemoller Live in Concert'. For the first time Trentemoller and band (Henrik Vibskov on drums and Mikael Simpson (guitar/bass) performed tracks from the album 'The Last Resort' live on stage, with spectacular visuals provided by videodirector Karim Ghahwagi. The tour included festivals like Glastonbury (UK), Melt (Germany), Lowlands (Netherlands), Roskilde (Denmark), followed by his first USA concerts.
