Whether we're conducting interviews, putting together features, or prepping some other piece of content we here at XLR8R try to keep in mind that many members of our audience come to the site not only for music, but also to learn. Over the past few years, we've attempted to build our Gear section into a useful resource for aspiring DJs and beatmakers, but we also realize that it's not quite enough. No matter how thorough XLR8R attempts to be, there are surely readers out there who are left disappointed when a certain question goes unanswered or a specific piece of information isn't revealed. In an effort to remedy this situation, we've decided to launch a new feature series, Ask the Experts, which will give our audience the chance to pepper a new artist with questions each and every month. And to kick off the new feature, we've enlisted the smarts of none other than veteran German duo Modeselektor.
Modeselektor has not only been releasing music for more than a decade, but the Berlin-based duo also heads up the excellent Monkeytown and 50Weapons labels. It's safe to say that the pair knows a lot about music—and the music industry—so the inaugural edition of Ask the Experts offers an opportunity to ask about production, touring, remixing, traveling, or pretty much any aspect of being an artist. If you have a question, email it ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll send all of the entries along to Modeselektor, and they'll select their favorites to answer.
The first installment of Ask the Experts will arrive later this month, and will be followed each and every month thereafter with another round featuring a new artist. Start sending in those questions now.
