It's not a coincidence that "Chameleon" is just like Plastikman's "Consumed" project; it's obviously copying it in a way that displays self-awareness. Which is why the track is titled as such. (A chameleon is : ")). any of several American lizards capable of changing the color of the skin. )). a changeable, fickle, or inconstant person.") - - - So either Trentemøller is respectfully paying homage to Hawtin or saying, "Hey look how easy it is to ape your style. I can do it too."
Superb release, no doubt about that.
Polar shift reminds me a bit of Hawtin's 'Consumed' album.
Same build, same use of deepfrozen subbass and an intelligent use for the dark and sinister noises.
If I would have to choose between Hawtin's consumed or this one than it would definately be Hawtin.
But this one's in my collection as well so .........
In my opinion the best release by Trentemøller yet. Polar Shift fires at you from all kind of different angles with crystal clear production, crinkly minimal sounds and a climax that is extatic while being deep-frozen at the same time. Sounds like colliding submarines below the polar ice.
