Modeselektor Body Language Volume 8
It might be kind of a dubious honor, but no other techno/dubstep/grime/hyphy/etc. producers make better mix CDs than Modeselektor. Completely populist while still bleeding edge, Body Language Volume 8 wasn’t strung together with 100% exclusive tracks or eight turntables—Modeselektor just takes a lot of the best stuff out there and makes it seem like it was part of the duo's vibe all along. Take, for instance, the seamless run between the early dubstep of Horsepower Productions' "Let’s Dance," which sneaks into Rob Hood’s raw, minimal anthem “Unix” before dropping into the corporal snare rolls and futuristic dancehall of Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor." Individually, all of these tracks are defining songs of the genres from which they come. But in the space of this mix, it all just seems like Modeselektor.
