Modeselektor is a Berlin-based electronic duo whose disregard for stylistic boundaries is matched by their cheeky, absurdist sense of humor. First emerging with a series of early-2000s EPs consisting of glitchy IDM, but refreshingly lacking the self-importance common to that scene, the pair made their full-length debut with 2005's Hello Mom!, a glittering fusion of electro, hip-hop, dub, and other influences. From there, Modeselektor grew more ambitious, collaborating with artists like Thom Yorke and Maxïmo Park, founding the successful indie electronic group Moderat (with Apparat), and launching the 50 Weapons and Monkeytown labels. They released several Modeselektion compilations throughout the 2010s, and continued issuing original productions such as the 2021 full-length EXTLP.
