  • Description Modeselektor should require very little introduction. The Berlin-based duo of Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary have destroyed so many dancefloors around the world that their reputation precedes them and, as producers too, their stature has grown and grown. They’ve released two critically-acclaimed albums - Hello Mom! and Happy Birthday! - and collaborated with the likes of Thom Yorke and Paul St Hilaire. Most recently they worked with Apparat on the much talked-about Moderat project: a collision of futuristic beat-styles, moody synth-textures and vocals, which has won them a whole load of new fans and seen them tour the globe with a truly mind-melting, chest-thumping audio-visual live show. Somehow or other, Modeselektor still find time to be among the best, most reliable party-smashing DJs on the planet. Their contribution to Get Physical’s Body Language mix series is a riotous, bass-heavy affair, one which takes in all kinds of interesting developments in cutting edge contemporary dance music. MDSLKTR draw a natural line from the fizzing aqua-crunk of Rustie’s ‘Zig-Zag’ to the R&B bump of Missy Elliott’s Timbaland-produced ‘Lick Shots’, from the skippy 90s techno of G-Man’s ‘Quo Vadis’ to the tough Berghain minimalism of Norman Nodge. Dubstep – a big influence on the Moderat project - plays a pivotal role in the mix: moody, synth-led masterpieces by Peverelist and Benga recall classic Detroit techno, while Untold’s devastating ‘Anaconda’ is sheer dancefloor energy. Scuba’s ‘Klinik’ isn’t so much dubstep as broken, reductionist house music. Throughout the mix, Gernot and Sebastian astound with their ability to bring apparently disparate tunes together into perfect synchrony: who else would have thought to marry the edgy 2-step of Horsepower Productions to the austere 4/4 pulse of vintage Robert Hood, and on into the crunching digital dancehall of Major Lazer? Sometimes the links that Modeselektor forge are less bizarre but no less effective: Joker & Rustie’s wonky standard ‘Play Doe’ is a natural companion to Busta Rhymes’ ‘Gimme Some More’ and the low-slung strip-club thump of Mark Pritchard & Om’mas Keith’s ‘Wind It Up’. There’s still room for surprises though: the mix’s closing chapter is heralded by a cheeky blast of what is perhaps the pop song of 2009, Animal Collective’s effervescent ‘My Girls’. We’re left with ‘A New Error’, probably the most haunting and memorable tune from Moderat’s recent album, and a fine finale to this stupendous, genre-hopping mix. The uncompromising, big-hearted Body Language Vol.8 is the most refreshing and outrageously banging mix you’ll hear all year, a stellar addition to a series which has seen previous contributions from the likes of M.A.N.D.Y., DJ T., Matthew Dear and Junior Boys. It’s the very opposite of boring. Hell, it might just be the party album of the year… Tracklist CD: TRACKLIST CD: 01 - Outro 02 - Rustie – Zig-Zag 03 - Missy Elliott – Lick Shots (Instrumental) 04 - Osborne – The Count 05 - Boy 8-Bit – Cricket Scores 06 - Felix Da Housecat - Kickdrum 07 - Alex Cortex – Huyendo Part 2 08 - G-Man – Quo Vadis 09 - Norman Nodge – NN 8.0 10 - Benga - Emotions 11 - Peverelist – Clunk Click Every Trip 12 - Untold - Anaconda 13 - MOVES!!! – All Skate 14 - Busta Rhymes – Gimme Some More (Amended Version) 15 - Joker & Rustie – Play Doe 16 - Mark Pritchard & Om’mas Keith – Wind It Up 17 - Djedjotronic – Dirty & Hard (feat.
