Berlin techno wizards Modeselektor returned in full force to their club-oriented roots with the release of their third album, Monkeytown, out last year on their own Monkeytown records.Monkeytown shows Modeselektor’s Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary producing hard-hitting, smart club music that steps forward in sound and structure, yet still completely assaults the dance floor. There’s no better way to experience Modeselektor than via their live show, and this coming April, they’ll give North Americans that chance as they finally make their way stateside in support of this release. The Modeselektor tour will take them from the west coast, where they play Coachella, to select dates in Canada, the northeast and midwest, and then back to Indio for Coachella’s second weekend.
The completely new live show will feature dazzling visuals created by the superbly stylish design collective, Pfadfinderei, and brand new album tracks along with some Modeselektor classics. As always, one can expect a fully engaged stage performance with lots of bass, sweat and humor.
