Alongside the Soul Jazz Future Bass compilation, Monkeytown’s Modeselektions Vol. 1 has to be one of this year’s premier compilations when it comes to electronic bass music. On December 17th, the Berlin label operated by the duo of Modeselektor releases the bonus tracks from the special edition and some extended versions.
01. Falty DL – I’m gonna show you somethin’
02. Vaghe Stelle – Emiciclo 1
03. Love Operation – Heartbeat
04. Bok Bok – Say Stupid Things (Extended Version)
05. Cosmin TRG – Space Station Love Affair (Extended Version)
We have no clue whether this means there will be a vinyl pressing or if these tracks are digital only. If you have more information, please feel free to share!
Ever since Modeselektor announced their first compilation, I was on the lookout to find out more about the project. The Berlin based duo has always been thinking outside the box, as they’ve proven on their two albums released on Bpitch Control, their contribution to the Boogy Bytes mix series, and the curration of their own stage at Germany’s acclaimed Melt! Festival.
More recently, they also got serious with their own Monkeytown label. The first one, two, samplers gained much attention among bass music connaisseurs, a third will be out in late November. By the end of next, a CD will be available combining all these with the remaining tracks: 18 in total, all exclusive to the compilation.01. Siriusmo – Das Geheimnis *
02. SBTRKT – The Unspoken
03. Feadz – The Assistant Manager *
04. Tadd Mulinix & Daniel Meteo – The Good Star *
05. Robag Wruhme – Bierholer
06. 2562 – The Wind Up
07. eLan – Pussy Posse
08. Cosmin TRG – Space Station Love Affair
09. Shed – With Bag And Baggage
10. Apparat – King Of Clubs *
11. Marcel Dettmann – Lyrate
12. Ikonika & Optimum – Hum *
13. Modeselektor – VW Jetta
14. Ramadanman – Pitter
15. Digital Mystikz/Mala – Explorer *
16. Bok Bok – Say Stupid Things
17. Housemeister – Kristall *
18. Cylob – Pepper Spray (Capsicum Edit) *
* also available on limited 2-LP
A warning to all vinyl lovers out there: If you want all the tracks on your beloved wax, you need all three EPs plus a highly limited 2-LP pressing. While it’s already sold out at the Modeselektor store, Juno still has copies. It is pressed on clear vinyl and there are only 666 in existence.
It’s easier if you’re going for the CD or the download, both are available directly from Modeselektor and should find their way into all good stores.
November 5, 2010 The compilation is available now, including a limited edition with bonus CD.
