Modeselektor have pulled it off again, curating a fine selection of whats happening tomorrow today.,
This review is from: Modeselektor Proudly Presents Modeselektion Vol 2 (Audio CD)
Modeselektor return with their new compilation Modeselektion Vol.02, with exclusive tracks abound from Egyptrixx, Phon.o, Martyn, Anstam, Addison Groove and a whole lot more.
The compilation comprises of established and new artists's recordings, from the more experimental Clark, Prefuse 73 and the legendary Mouse on Mars (recently signed to Monkeytown Records), to newcomers Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team, Bambounou and Frikstailers. Raster Noton regulars Alva Noto and Byetone get in on the act with their debut collaborative project, Diamond Version.
Standout tracks include Phon.o's 'Fukushima', a lithe beast of a track which is perfect for the summer months. Modeselektor's 'Maik the chicken' hits the spot again. Egyptrixx's 'Levitate' is a dark and gritty tech-stepper, a perfect opener to the compilation. Jan Driver's 'Distorsione for Strings' is a pulsating pile-driver, segueing nicely into Anstam's 'Observing the patterns' which could well be the best track they've created. Frikstailers are new to my ears, delivering an excellent futuristic riddim-jam. Both Lazer Sword and Martyn deliver old-skool homages to 90's dance music.
Whereas Modeselektion Vol.01 was more about bass music, Modeselektion Vol.02 expands to include progressive dance music in its entirety. Predictably, Modeselektor have pulled it off again, curating a fine selection of whats happening tomorrow today.
