Trentemøller-Take Me Into Your Skin [2006]

Bit of a change of pace here, however no less brilliant a track. Definately one of my favourite downtempo artists, Trentemøller works wonders with electronica, weaving bloody incredible soundscapes in each of his tracks. In the same experimental ilk of Richard D James although easily far more accessible, Trentemøller has created a masterful back catalogue of exemplary electronic works. This is one of the easier to get straight into, definitely more a Sunday track, found on the superb “The Last Resort” album. An album you owe yourself. Believe me.

This is some of the most profound and beautiful techno / IDM I have heard. Production is second to none. Drum programming is genius. The first time I dropped the needle to the wax the slow build up of undertone crept into my mind and hasn’t left since. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up. The complexity of tracks like ‘Take Me Into Your Skin’ (that starts like a minimal drip of colour and sound and builds to splashing and thrashing crescendo) or the Spaghetti Western guitar and scalding broken beat of ‘The Very Last Resort’ are not to be missed. This is the future of techno. Deep, emotional, spine tingling joy.
