Danish composer, musician, and producer Anders Trentemøller has been crafting his own expansive, lush, cinematic sonic universe through a steady run of releases dating back to the early 2000s. His critically-acclaimed 2006 debut album The Last Resort displayed a mastery of immaculate electronica rhythms and moody downtempo beats, and he's branched off from this foundational sound and shifted towards a gauzy celestial pop sound infused with shoegaze, krautrock, noise, synthwave, and dream-pop styles. His 6th full-length studio album Memoria is scheduled to be released February 11th on his own label, In My Room Records.
Trentemøller's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a captivating and unique glimpse into some of his favorite late-night picks. Dominated by fuzzy garage rock, psychedelic pop nuggets, and blistering shoegaze jams, Trentemøller seamlessly stitches together stunning obscure picks alongside heady deep cuts from legendary artists.
