Berlin label Monkeytown Records was founded by Modeselektor and they’ve signed Argentinean born but Berlin-based artist Catnapp and on the single track “Slow” (a prelude to her EP “Damage” that will be released on June 26th) we get bone-crunching bass vibes with crystal synthy electro sounds thrown in, fine-sounding rap lines, along with subtle vocals.
“After the festival season 2010 ends it’s time to show a sign of life as Modeselektor. So it happens impressively with the kick start of a new album series called Modeselektions. Accompanied by carefully selected events around the globe Modeselektor invited 20 of their current favourite electronic music artists to participate with unreleased and exclusive tracks, of which 18 are to be found on this CD.
Names like 2562 (A Made Up Sound), Robag Wruhme (Wighnomy Brothers), Marcel Dettmann, Shed, Mala (Digital Mystikz), Tadd Mulinix (Dabrye, James T. Cotton), Feadz, Siriusmo, Apparat, Ramadanman, Ikonika, Cylob and many more sound impressive not only to hippsters and specialists, DJs and journalists, but also to the â€žnormal” fan of electronic music.”
