Modeselektor

Irrereverent Berlin-based techno cut-ups Modeselektor -- producers Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary -- were known as Fundamental Knowledge from their 1992 formation until 1996, when the change of name was made. They connected with Ellen Allien's Bpitch Control label, initiating a series of 12" releases in 2002, which culminated in 2005's full-length Hello Mom! As their visibility increased with each release and live performance, they began to take on a heavier load of remix work, including mixes for several labelmates (Allien, Smash TV, TimTim, Paul Kalkbrenner), as well as Miss Kittin, Knifehandchop, My Robot Friend, and Ninjaman. Second album Happy Birthday! was released in 2007, featuring guest spots from Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Maxïmo Park, and Rhythm & Sound collaborator Paul St. Hilaire. A contribution to Bpitch Control's Boogybytes series of mix albums preceded the album by a few months. [allmusic]
Showtrotta will have more to say about last night's Modeselektor / Housemeister appearance at Bowery Ballroom in NYC last night (1/24). In the meantime here are some pics...
