5 years trndmsk – Lexer


5 years trndmsk - Lexer

Time flies. Five years of electronic music means five years of trndmsk to me. It’s not that easy to be surrounded by melodies and vocals every minute, but I like it – still. Although, the days I dedicate to other things become more. And I have to admit, there are other things that became important to me – the search for happiness, for instance. Not necessarily for my own, but rather the search for something bigger. Maybe I’m just ardently awaiting the discovering of an answer to a question that has been asked frequently. Thanks to my Bachelor Thesis lykkelykke other things entered my life that I don’t want to miss anytime soon. Nonetheless, trndmsk will be my base also in 2016, but drawing to a close. Be that as it may: we celebrated December 19th, 2015. Five years of trndmsk!

Calm, calmer, Lexer

For our anniversary I asked Lexer if he wants to compile our 5-years-podcast – and he said yes. „First of all, I want to say thank you that I was asked to make the jubilee podcast“, the young music producer reveals, who wants to take us on a journey with his set. „It starts very dignified and increases calmly and ends calm again. Close your eyes and enjoy.“ Contrary to the club, where Lexer often plays speedier music, this mixtape turned out far calmer. The collection got recorded on every weekend that he was out and about, or chilled in a hotel: „I worked on it over and over again, changing something again and again. Now I’m quite happy.“ Regarding the selection of tracks, Lexer gave free rein to his imagination. „I integrated some of my favorites as well as some new things. A new track of mine and now it’s done,“ adds the DJ who has been really satisfied with the feedback to his debut album released earlier this year. „It’s my first album so I’m really happy. It is even played in every Star Alliance long-haul aircraft“, says Lexer, „that was pretty cool when I toured USA and heard my own album on the plane.“
