Modeselektor

The ferocity of Berlin electronic production duo Modeselektor has forced music journalists to make up new words: bastard dancehall, acid rap, big bass techno, labstyle, happy metal, psychedelic electro and for some reason Russian crunk. Their production ethos of “create, distort, recycle,” results in mashed up grooves that take their lead from every conceivable musical genre.

The un-defineable group, made up of Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary, formed in 1996, taking their name from a function on a Roland effects unit. Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has regularly labelled the duo as one of his favourite bands and even appeared on their third album, Monkeytown.

They will play one show in New Zealand.
