Modeselektor announce Melt!Selektion, Apparat announces new Moderat Busy days for Modeselektor: besides being on tour with their Monkeytown album and preparing the release of their second Modeselektion compilation, they’ve just been honoured with the critic’s award during Echo 2012.

On a different note: we’re already very excited about the end of the year, since everything seems to be set for a new Moderat album. In our recent ‘Electronic Beats presents Apparat at SXSW‘ video documentary feature, Sascha Ring announced that Modeselekor and Apparat plan on working on a sophomore album to the self-titled Moderat record from 2009:

We will definetly do a new Moderat album. And we already knew it when we finished the first one. Now we decided to work on it in autumn, to take some time and try to do the same thing again – which might sound completely different, who knows …” Watch the whole interview below.

And on another different note: Schlachthofbronx are celebrating the release of their new album Dirty Dancing at Horst Kreuzberg Berlin tonight, make sure to stop by for party mayhem by Schlachthofbronx, Daniel Haaksman, and Finckobot, rsvp here.
