Anders Trentemøller is a Danish electronic musician from Copenhagen.
Trentemøller made his debut in 1997 together with DJ T.O.M. when they formed the first live-house act in Denmark, Trigbag, and started playing concerts all over the globe. Trigbag’s single “Showtime” was played by international DJs such as Alex Gopher, Laurent Garnier or Etienne de Crécy. Trigbag dissolved in 2000.
Trentemøller returned on Naked Music in 2003 with his The Trentemøller EP including the tracks “Le Champagne” and “Work in Progress”. Trentemøller received the award “Up Front Release of the Year” at the Danish DJ Awards in February 2004 for the Track “Le Champagne”.
In late 2004 he and his friend and partner, DJ Buda, issued a white label remix of Aphex Twin’s “Windowlicker”, under the name “Run Jeremy”. Together they’ve also made other great tracks such as “Gamma” and “25 Timer”. Furthermore, Trentemøller has worked together with DJ Buda and DJ T.O.M. on another track on the upcoming and much anticipated Lulu Rouge album entitled “Bless You” which will be released in May 2008.
In February 2005 Steve Bug released the renowned Trentemøller EP “Physical Fraction” on his label Audiomatique. This release put Trentemøller on the map of internationally successful producers, and was followed by three releases on Bug’s main label Poker Flat: Polar Shift, Sunstroke and the Nam Nam EP. Many reader polls awarded him as the Best Newcomer of the year 2005.
Trentemøller is also a much demanded remixer. Highlights have been his remixes for Martinez (“Shadowboxing”), Sharon Philips (“Want 2 Need 2”), Röyksopp (“What Else Is There?”), The Knife (“We Share Our Mother’s Health”), “Sodom” for the Pet Shop Boys, and Moby’s hit “Go”. “Go (Trentemøller Remix)” charted at #38 on the Australian ARIA Club chart in October 2006. In 2006, Trentemøller also released a remix of Chris Isaak’s 90s hit “Wicked Game” under his alias “Businessman”. The single was called “Dubby Games” and was a major underground tune that year.
Anders’ debut album The Last Resort was released on Poker Flat in October 2006. German magazine Groove Mag and French magazine Trax both voted it as “Record of the Year” in November 2006.
His Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 was voted Essential Mix of the Year by listeners in 2006.
In 2007 the song “Moan” by Trentemøller feat. Ane Trolle was a big hit in Denmark as well as a top 30 hit in the Belgium Singles Top 50.
