Berlin has clearly been one of the main centers for techno since the early ’90s, and Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary, the duo behind Modeselektor has been there since the beginning. Together with a veritable army of collaborators, guest artists and with their two labels Monkeytown and 50 Weapons, they have built a broad network. They assimilate and process the tiniest vibrations in the global bass continuum and at the same time, their wobbly salvos and their oblique sense of humour are unmistakable. They became known to a select audience through their records on BPitch Control with which they catapulted themselves out of the Berlin 4/4 cosmos, whilst simultaneously reflecting the raw and full-on spirit of the 1990s Berlin club scene.
The duo samples every genre of techno, from house to electronic—they even made a fan out of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, who invited them to open for Radiohead on a tour. The two German producers are also the brains behind the award-winning band MODERAT—-a joint collaboration with fellow producer Apparat.
