Modeselektor Announces Third 'Modeselektion' Comp
- Words: Patric Fallon
The DJ/producers and label co-founders of enduring German duo Modeselektor have announced the follow up to 2012's solid
In a press release for Modeselektion Vol. 3, Bronsert's and Szary's methods of curation are illuminated: "Any selection is only as great as the distance between its most diverse elements—the greater, the better—but only if the compilation manages to shrink this gap down to nothing in a flash, convincing us that the gloriously heterogeneous mix couldn’t be any more cohesive. Also, any selection improves exponentially with the number of surprises and discoveries." The duo continues, explaining, "Naturally, the art of selection is all about balancing these opposing poles in a way that makes it pretty much impossible—or at least entirely unfair—to pick out isolated highlights. But we’ll throw in a few teasers to whet your appetite. Generally speaking, this one is all about a little less in-your-face and a touch more schmaltz, but the usual dose of head and heart." Before Modeselektor's latest compilation arrives in all of its formats on June 27 via the duo's Monkeytown label, its artwork and tracklists can be found below. More information is available here.
