Been digging into the hard drive over the weekend and stumbled back upon the Hello Mom! LP and then by way of that the remix album, and in particular Siriusmo's insanely good remix of Silikion.
Modeselektor are an odd one for me, they seldom pop into the conversation for me but every time I listen to their stuff I'm completely blown away by how energetic and well produced it is sitting somewhere between dark wigged out Electronica, f*cked up instrumental Hip Hop and the LA Beatscene (think Fly Lo, Glitch Mob et al). Yet the melodic nature of the glitching and chopping feels somewhat years ahead of itself (check Dancing Box if you can) and the Hello Mom LP always gets some re-winds.
The interesting thing with the remix of Silikon is how it sounds completely different but somehow exactly the same, the chopped vocals flipped but still somehow the same, and the heavy boom bap yet electronic beat, pitched 909 kicks and well…it’s like Siriusmo condensed the entire album into the one track.
Anyway, there is it. not much else to say, except crank it up and smash those speakers and annoy the neighbours.
