Trentemøller’s career has always defied categorisation - never being one for the obvious next step. The Danish producer has managed to tread a path both entirely unique and instantly recognisable - his blurring of the boundaries between heart-wrenching indie melodies and advanced electronics have made him a hero to music fans the world over. The new 'Fixion' album cemented this reputation - a deeper exploration into cold wave synth soundscapes and jagged, emotional songwriting added with his own take on a more post-rock inspired sound. 'One Eye Open' is the first track on Fixion - now finally released as a single with a pair of killer remixes in support. 'One Eye Open' sees Trentemøller dive deep into his emotional arsenal of haunting synth pop and precise, hard-edged drums - providing the perfect bedrock for the sublime vocals of Marie Fisker. Trentemøller’s reworked version gets deeper into the thick atmosphere of the original, with interesting new chord progressions, psyche-delic synths and rhythmic surprises that push the track into new, magical directions. UNKLE - the pseudonym of the UK legend James Lavelle whose productions with Tim Goldsworthy and DJ Shadow defined a certain aspect of the 1990s - drop a suitably epic remix to round off the release. In UNKLE’s hands, 'One Eye Open' becomes a chugging, slo-mo bomb that sacrifices none of the original’s emotive power to its insistent, powerful groove.
