The Berlin-based duo have a new compilation and a series of parties in the works.
The CD features 18 previously unreleased tracks by a diverse array of high profile producers, including the likes of Shed, 2562, Feadz and Berlin-based artist Apparat, who produces with Modeselektor as Moderat. "The main concern in all of this was the idea of defying genres and the usual beef between different camps, i.e. to create without borders and be completely freestyle," say the duo. "When we now look at the line-up on this CD, it pretty much goes down like oil." All of the tracks on Modeselektion Vol.01 will also see release in a series of 12-inches, including an eight-track LP on transparent vinyl that's limited to 666 copies.
The compilation series stems from Modeselektor's new sideline in events programming. It began this past summer with their stage at Melt!, where the duo booked artists like Four Tet, Kode9 and Martyn, and is set to continue with a series of parties throughout the winter, including an edition of Manchester's Warehouse Project curated by the duo. Info on the rest of these events is still forthcoming.
