Modeselektor announce new album

By | Published on Wednesday 3 August 2011


German techno wunderkinds Modeselektor are to make a return to their club-orientated beginnings with new album ‘Monkeytown’, their first since 2007’s ‘Happy Birthday!’, which they will self-release on 3 Oct via their own Monkeytown Records label.

Far from being a concept album about a settlement ruled by apes, the LP is instead a body of cerebral beats that features collaborations with the likes of Thom Yorke and Apparat.

As for catching Modeselektor live, the duo has a lone UK appearance lined up at London’s SW4 festival with a DJ set on 28 Aug.
