Modeselektor cast an all-star lineup for their limited 5-track 12″ Record Store Day release.
This Saturday 20th April marks the 6th annual UK Record Store Day, a celebration of independent record stores and all things vinyl. It’s become something of a tradition for artists and labels to recognise the occasion with exclusive releases, and this year Modeselektor have decided to put out a limited double-sided grey marble 12″ in a meeting of their 50Weapons and Monkeytown imprints.
The A-side represents 50Weapons, with two slabs of pounding techno – a remix of Phon.o’s ‘Black Boulder’ from young berliner SCNTST, and ‘Simulation’ from Benjamin Damage, a track which missed the boat on his recent album ‘Heliosphere’, but holds its own against the finest tracks on that release. The B-side is a more eclectic Monkeytown affair, with tracks from electronic veterans Mouse on Mars, a Modeselektor remix of Otto Von Schirach‘s ‘Skeleton Search’, a track made exclusively for the release, plus a cut from eLan‘s forthcoming album on the label.
