Today, German electronic music pioneers Modeselektor release their highly anticipated new album, ‘WHO ELSE’. An album that challenges the conventions of electronic music while instilling fun in a completely unique way, ‘WHO ELSE’ is essential Modeselektor – a complete exploration of their sound formed by experience, self-confidence, and a hint of madness. A diverse yet refined 8-track collection, the album features the likes of Flohio and Tommy Cash and displays all the hallmarks of Modeselektor’s best work; hard-hitting, eclectic and with a touch of madness that makes their music so unique.
To celebrate the album’s release, Modeselektor have unveiled the toe-curling visuals for their Tommy Cash collaboration, ‘Who’. Directed by Chehad Abdallah, the visuals never allow the viewer to sit comfortably, focusing on almost unbearable yet completely captivating situations custom built to cause a reaction. Taking place in a shared space by Modeselektor and Tommy Cash’s own surreal design, the video is a hugely entertaining test of human strength, daring the viewer to watch further.
Possibly the most pop focused moment on ‘WHO ELSE’, the track finds Tommy Cash at his most melodic, offsetting the song’s destructive kick drums and full bodied bass with hypnotic chants and empowering lyricism. ‘Who’ underscores Modeselektor’s reputation as pioneers of boundary-pushing popular electronic music, keeping it real while keeping it fresh, appealing and inclusive. A frantic and melodic tune, ‘Who’ shows a love for the spectacular, while not shying away from a more pop-leaning sound. It’s Modeselektor’s universe in a nutshell. Always familiar, never the same.
An impactful, high energy return, Modeselektor’s ‘WHO ELSE’ is a focused return from a duo who consistently twist the boundaries of electronic music in their own singular way.
