Trying to describe Modeselektor’s records without sounding like a literary wanker is hard. ‘Acid Dancehall’? ‘Bastard Rap’? ‘Mutated Techno’? They prefer to simply call it: ‘Advanced Dance Music’ but that doesn’t reveal anywhere near enough of their transmogrified productions that smash together (via their own software patch called Jihad) disparate genres such as Dancehall, IDM, Acid, Reggae, Techno and anything else they can dismember for their own perverse delight.
