I first heard Modeselektor two years ago when they opened for Basement Jaxx and my favorite duo at the time MSTRKRFT. Despite the heavy hitters that they preceded, Modeselektor killed it and was easily my favorite show of the night. Their music lacks the catchiness found in poppier electronic but their mixing ability, catalog of sounds, and dirty ribcage-rattling bass was something I’ll never forget. The German duo is still pretty underground in the United States despite critical acclaim and praise from Radio Head front man Thom Yorke who has recommended them on multiple interviews.
Anyways, about two weeks ago they released a new single called “Monkeyflip” that is fucking bananas (pun intended deal with it). The song has a reggae vibe and that signature Modeselektor dirty bass and percussion. Check it out along with a Boys Noize remix.
