The German electronic duo Modeselektor have been a bit quiet recently. Knowing the brain behind the machine, this doesn't mean they're up to nothing. Non stop touring, collaborations and running their label's Monkeytown Records and 50 Weopons is sure to be keeping them more than occupied.
Their latest release comes as a follow up to 2010's Modeselektion Vol. 01. Featuring unreleased exclusive tracks by Monolake, Prefuse 73, Mouse on Mars, Clark, Lazer Sword, Martyn, Siriusmo, Addison Groove, Egyptrixx, Anstam, Diamond Version (a new project by raster-noton's Byetone and AlvaNoto) and many more, Modeselektion Vol. 02 again unites some of the best names of the international electronic music scene.
"The music on Modeselektion Vol. 02 explores darker, more experimental grounds, certainly still with one eye focused on the trademark Modeselektor party-factor."
Modeselektion Vol. 02 will be released next week as a 3xLP (14 tracks), CD (18 tracks) and downloadable version (19 tracks). If you simply can't wait, you can hear a full album sampler below:
