We are proud to be working across press and online for the legendary Modeselektor. Fresh from making their second Moderat album, the duo are set to release ‘We Are Modeselektor,’ a revealing behind the scenes documentary following the history of the two techno beat makers. The DVD reveals the history up to the present day of Gernot and Sebastian by means of numerous interviews with Modeselektor themselves and companions such as the VJs from Pfadfinderei, Ellen Allien and Moderat band colleague Sascha Ring. ‘We Are Modeselektor’ was screened at the historic Roundhouse in London followed by an exclusive performance this past May. Check out the two front covers we achieved with Crack and DJ Mag.
