About this item
Modeselektor revived their Seilscheibenpfeiler Schallplatten label around this time last year, and have since delivered nine top drawer releases traversing new and vintage vibrations from the vast world of underground electronic music.
Toronto based producer Graham Bertie aka Nautiluss returns for his second outing and the label's 10th overall release.
Contrasting technically proficient, rhythmically intricate production with the kinda of tactile, body pleasing playfulness often associated with the label's leading duo, "Guccifer" is a fierce, whiplash breaks roller that's riddled with a gnarly attitude.
"Snakes & Ledgers" is a dreadlocked steamline techno track, combining rastaman vox, jungle subs and incessant 4/4 to devastating effect.
"Wi-Fi Oasis" cleverly deploys gated and panned stabs to create a shimmering jungle odyssey that's dreamy, cinematic and heavily indebted to Photek's vast songbook.
"Moment Of Clarity" completes the set, a track with a unique rhythmic footprint, you can tell why Modeselektor would enjoy playing this out due to it's head-turning, attention grabbing form. Cerebral, evocative and picturesque, it could soundtrack many a moment of blissed out, serene conclusion; the crown joining together to reconcile the epic DJ that that's played out before it.
Sil says: Megatronic release here. A side is dancefloor bliss with its dark undertones and merciless bass whilst B side invites you to chill a bit still brandishing some industrial aesthetics. Highly recommended.
