Modeselektor to Launch New Compilation Series, Tour U.S.
- Words: Patric Fallon
Though a new album from Berlin's next-level bass dons, Modeselektor, is still nowhere in sight, we do have news of the duo kicking off a fresh compilation series. Entitled Modeselektion Vol. 1, the 18-track disc is said to showcase "the progression of dubstep's offsprings and related, or unrelated but similar sounding, techno producers in London, Berlin, or elsewhere." So, basically, the release has whatever the hell music Modeselektor wants it to have. Vol. 1 is scheduled for release on November 5 via the production outfit's own label, Monkeytown, and will be preceded by a short stint in the U.S. this September. You can find those dates, along with the compilation's artwork and tracklist, below.
