Modeselektor scarcely need an introduction especially on their home turf of Berlin. Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary have been working together since 1992, becoming Modeselektor in 1996. In 1999 they began working with the Pfadfinderei VJ collective, and in 2000 they met Ellen Allien and began releasing on her BPitch Control label. 2005 saw the release of their first album Hello Mom!
which immediately earned them an international reputation. Happy Birthday!
followed in 2007. Collaborations and remixes with and for Thom Yorke, Björk, Maximo Park, Miss Kittin, Boys Noize, Roots Manuva and many others, not to mention stadium tours with Radiohead, have made them known to audiences all over the globe. Since 2009, Modeselektor have mainly been active as a trio in their collaboration with Sascha Ring aka Apparat as the electronic super group Moderat, which has appeared at countless festivals worldwide. Modeselektor have now founded their own Monkeytown Records imprint, releasing Modeselektion Vol. 01
, a compilation of exclusive tracks by various friends and associates.
