Modeselektor present Modeselektion Vol. 1

on August 25, 2010, 4:25pm

The German electronic duo Modeselektor have been quiet since their collaboration with Apparat, but are now breaking the silence with a series of hand-selected compilations. And don’t expect endless hours of IDM, as each album showcases artists from across the electronic spectrum and the European Continent.

The series begins November 5th with the self-release Modeselektion Vol. 1 via Monkeytown Records. Always ones to evade defining their sound, the first album focuses on the “progression of Dubstep’s offsprings and related or unrelated, but similar sounding Techno producers in London, Berlin or elsewhere.” So, they have chosen whatever they really felt like for the first release. But the selections do demonstrate the breadth of the dub’s influence, as you can discern when you delve into the complete tracklist below.

Even though they are amidst a European tour as part of Moderat, Modeselektor will hit the U.S. for a short September “tour”. Continue onto the tour dates, and if you happen to live near NY, you can pick up tickets on Ticketmaster; everyone else must be slightly more crafty.
