Modeselektor Happy Birthday!
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: BPitch Control
- XLR8R Rating: 9/10
The masters are back. BPitch has nursed their star act through half a decade of singles, remixes, an explosive live show, and a stellar first album that people still fall in love with. Modeselektor's sophomore release vaults over the bar they set for themselves as they play the pranksters with beats and buzzing synths. Their instrumentals manage to be both catchy, tweaky, and somehow thoughtful all at the same time and, as always, the vocal tracks soar. Every artist (TTC, Paul St. Hilaire, Otto von Schirach, Puppetmastaz, and Thom Yorke) gets cut to shreds in perfect hybrids of lyrics and beats. Modeselektor could never do wrong, but what's amazing is that they keep doing it so right.
