Modular Launch ‘Club Mod’ Series

First release from 120 Days

Australian label Modular are set to launch the Club Mod series with a new release from 120 Days.

Based in Australia, Modular have helped give the country’s electronic scene a national prominence. With an eclectic roster the label can move from indie-dance to straight forward techno, and the imprint is now set to expand this further.

Modular are planning to launch a new club-heavy project named (appropriately enough) Club Mod. A series of 12 inch and digital releases, the imprint is set to get underway with a cut from 120 Days.

The Norwegian four piece are most readily associated with Smalltown Supersound, but have recorded widely. Moving between Krautrock style periods of introspection and all out dancefloor abandon, 120 Days have a varied yet extremely distinct output.

Chosen to spearhead Club Mod the Norwegian group are planning to release their new track ‘Osaka’ on October 3rd. Available on digital and 12 inch format the track will come equipped with a remixes from Sidwho? and Diskjokke.

The music has been specially crafted for Club Mod, with the artwork coming from Fergadelic. A well known figure in the graphic world, the artist has worked extensively with the likes of Slam City Skates, Stussy, Soulwax and more.

Fergadelic is set to design a special 12 inch house bag for each release, collaborating extensively with Modular in the process.

Talking about their influences of late, 120 Days admitted to listening to: “the hard minimalist industrial sound of Detroit Techno, the transcendental drone jazz of early Alice Coltrane, and the over-the-top orchestral maximalism of Wagnerian opera”.

To preview the release 120 Days have taken control of the Modular podcast. Available from this Friday (September 2nd) the Modcast will feature remixes, unheard cuts and of course ‘Osaka’.

120 Days are set to release ‘Osaka’ on October 3rd.
