Modeselektor – Kalif Storch

modeselektor

Modeselektor will release their new “Modeselektion Vol. 04” compilation on 1st June 2018 via Monkeytown Records x Ninja Tune. It features 17 exclusive tracks including the first new Modeselektor production since 2015 – a wild acid techno track ‘Kalif Storch’ – named after the nightclub of the same name in Erfurt, Germany.

From exciting upstarts such as Skee Mask, rRoxymore, Solid Blake and Sarah Farina to exalted visionaries Peder Mannerfelt, Vatican Shadow and Actress, “Modeselektion Vol. 04” is a direct reflection of Modeselektor’s genre-defying DJ sets which, at their heart, celebrate invention, innovation and hybridity combined with a hearty commitment to moving dancefloors. Indeed, this has been the ethos from the inaugural release in the Modeselektion series in 2010.

MODERAT Live In Berlin (2016)

Take in this powerful live performance from the unstoppable Moderat recorded by Telekom Electronic Beats TV at the sold out Velodrom in Berlin. The trio’s latest offering “III” released on Monkeytown / Mute USA has further solidified their position as one of the top electronic acts in the world, and after watching these renditions of “Reminder”, “Running” and “Last Time” it’s very easy to see why.

Video: Moderat – Reminder

moderat

…a rebellious teenager slaves away in a dystopian world, harvesting crystals from a vast grey landscape. This sparkling bounty is given as an offering to a tribal deity, who resides in a shrine guarded by sentinels with green glowing masks, where he is constantly under attack from an army of drones… Take a moment to imagine what it would be like to live in that world.

The new video for Reminder – the first single from the upcoming album Moderat III – will take you there!

PFADFINDEREI, Moderat’s long-time creative partner for visual works, came up with the innovative idea of using gaming aesthetic and VR production tools to make the experience truly, and uniquely, immersive and invited SEHSUCHT Berlin, to realize the full scope of this ambitious project. Mate Steinforth and the SEHSUCHT Berlin team developed the imaginative, politically charged narrative.
