Clocking in at just over an hour long, ‘Harbour Boat Trips Vol. 02: Copenhagen’ sees Trentemøller curate and craft sixteen songs into a heavy, hazy mix that ranges from shoegaze to electronica, featuring both familiar and celebrated artists like A Place to Bury Strangers (with a new Trentemøller remix) and Slowdive, to more obscure finds, as well as Trentemøller’s own tracks and remixes, most notably a brand new Trentemøller cover of Neil Young’s classic ‘Transformer Man’

The diversity of his musical knowledge and taste is reflected in the variety of places and times the tracks are sourced from, from old Danish cult classics to some of the best new artists to surface in recent years like Paris’ Pyrit and Posh Isolation’s CTM.

About the selection of songs, Trentemøller says: “They’re songs that have followed me for years, but also songs I discovered only recently. What I like about doing a mix like this, is that I can introduce the listeners to some songs they maybe haven’t heard before. A track like ’Naked When You Come’ is a Danish song from the 60s by The Lollipops, a quite corny band. But they wrote this amazing song that is so unique in terms of melody and production. The intro or the core groove of it, it could easily be the foundation for a modern hip-hop tune.

“Another example is a Danish band from the early 90s called How Do I, who made an incredible cover of the ABBA song ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’. Their version makes you feel the song and the lyrics much stronger through the way they approached it. It’s stripped down, and the changeover between the verses and choruses gives me goosebumps. Suddenly you listen to the lyrics much more carefully, and it feels like the music somehow really fits the words in a perfect way in this cover version.”
