Throwback: Modeselektor – Art & Cash

A deep, dark song from the master magicians of Berlin electronic mayhem. Modeselektor have dazzled and darkened everything they put their mind to, drawing listeners into a parallel world full of alien noise and strange sounds since their beginning in 1996. They transcend the world of music, stretching their talents into the realms of art and performance; they have become a multi-faceted, electronic, music machine.

The video for ‘Art & Cash’ is bizarre, something only Modeselektor and their collaborators could dream up. The analogue sound of , seemingly with till registers ringing in the background, is extremely organic. The buzz and crackle of electrical energy in the song is its outstanding factor: so many different, spontaneous sounds. The incessant violin-style notes, and those constant stabs of percussion and hi-hats of aggression, downplayed in the background make the song slightly sinister.

Prepare to enter the dark and twisted world of Modeselektor.

Release date:2009
