Its not very often that you see mixes these days from the German based Modeselektor. They are best known for the edgy dance electronic sounds that incorporate Hip Hop and rock influences. This mix differs from the norm. Its slowed down and spaced out. The sounds are scattered and at times reminds me of controlled chaos of a jazz set. From song to song I really didn’t have a clue what was coming next. To me that is the definition of a perfect mix tape. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Modeselektor.
Dexter Tortoriello will flip any notion that you may have of a live electronic mix. It sounds like a scattered, washed out, ambient, transmission received from outter space. The mix only last 15 minutes but you feel almost frozen in time as you are swept along their musical journey. I am very impressed that Mad Decent posted this mix on their soundcloud page. Catch him preforming live in Philly and Los Angeles during The Mad Decent Block Party Stops.
