50Weapons Readies Releases from Modeselektor, Bambounou, Addison Groove, and More
- Words: Patric Fallon
Modeselektor's 50Weapons imprint has a handful of exciting records ready to drop this summer—including new music from Addison Groove, Bambounou, and the German label heads themselves. First up, a 12" single for Modeselektor's collaborative tune with Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team—which will also appear later this month as a part of Sound Pellegrino's SND.PE Vol. 1 compilation—is scheduled to arrive on June 21 with a fresh remix from Bambounou. 50Weapons' annual compilation 50Weapons of Choice will see its third installment on June 28, featuring highlights from the label's discography—such as singles by Cosmin TRG, Marcel Dettmann, Atoms for Peace, and Benjamin Damage, among others—and unreleased tracks by Truncate and datei42. Lastly, Bristolian pair Addison Groove and Sam Binga have a collaborative EP (artwork above) in the works for a July 26 release. Previews of music from all three records can be found below.
