Berliners Modeselektor have announced plans for a new compilation, titled Modeselektion 2. Following on from 2010’s Modeselektion 1, the forthcoming release marks a different direction for the duo: “The monkey on the cover says it all. Compared to the rather cute and peaceful cover of Modeselektion Vol. 01, this time it’s all a bit different.” They explained on their Soundcloud. “The music on Modeselektion Vol. 02 explores darker, more experimental grounds, certainly still with one eye focused on the trademark Modeselektor party-factor.”
Among the artists featuring on the compilation are Monolake, Prefuse 73, Mouse on Mars, Clark, Lazer Sword, Martyn, Siriusmo, Addision Groove, Egyptrixx, Anstam and more. Modeselektion 2 is due for release on June 29, but in the meanwhile you can stream a portion of the release on Soundcloud.
