V/A - Harbour Boat Trips: 01 Copenhagen (hfn music)

Distinguished electronic producer Trentemøller is the Captain for this musical ride into uncharted waters, which sets off from his native Copenhagen. For the most part, it is a calm voyage in a rowing boat that lets you take in the musical surroundings of relaxed guitar driven efforts as opposed to full throttle technotic trip on a motorboat, but the waters do get a little choppier towards the end. Highlights of the trip include Emiliana Torrini’s melancholic Lifesaver, I Got You On Tape’s touching Somersault and a bizarre melding of Trentemøller’s own edit of Copenhagen Collective’s Copenhagen and Soft Cell’s timeless Tained Love. This is an enjoyable nautical journey with Trentemøller.
