The German duo's next compilation is darker and weirder, with tracks from Monolake, Prefuse 73 and Diamond Version, AKA Alva Noto and Byetone.
The second edition in Modeselektor's compilation series has a bit more of an experimental edge than its predecessor. In addition to artists like Addison Groove, Phon.o, Lazer Sword and Siriusmo, who have appeared before on the German duo's labels (the other being 50 Weapons), Modeselektion Vol.2 features avant-garde heavyweights like Mouse On Mars, Clark and Raster Noton staples Alva Noto and Byetone, who debut their latest collaborative project, Diamond Version.
The package will be available as a triple-LP as well as digitally and on CD. It will be preceded in June with a 12-inch featuring songs from Martyn and Modeselektor themselves. The launch party is happening on June 29th in Paris with Addison Groove, Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team and Lazer Sword.
