Various - 'Modeselektion Vol 2'

A lairy new record from the techno twosome

Various - 'Modeselektion Vol 2'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 2, 2012
  • Producer: Modeselektor
  • Label: Monkeytown
  • Fact: Modeselektor apparently met in 1992 whilst performing at illegal underground parties
7 / 10 As producers, Berlin techno twosome Modeselektor bridge the gap between manual-memorising electronics and brick-subtle, MDMA-peppered bouncy abandon. Conveniently, this is also the music they like, and have once again compiled exclusively on their own label. They don’t see why venerable IDMers (Clark, Mouse On Mars) shouldn’t sit next to frightfully modern p*st-d*bstepers (London’s Addison Groove, Toronto’s Egyptrixx). Monolake’s dub-techno is, they insist, a logical foil to Prefuse 73’s complicated hip-hop. They’re often correct, although subtle lairiness can occasionally equate to decade-old nu-skool breaks.
