Monkeytown Records

Modeselektor’s Monkeytown records is one of Berlin’s best.

Monkeytown Records is a record label run by Modeselektor’s Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary. The two Berlin natives started the label in 2015 after they retired their prior label, 50 Weapons.

Focusing on the duo’s broad musical vision, Monkeytown Records defining characteristic is eclecticism. Over the past few years, it has released hard techno by the likes of Shed and Fjaak, contemporary electronic soul by Howling, experimental IDM by Mouse On Mars and even the Syrian crooning of Omar Souleyman. That’s of course also in addition to the works released by Modeselektor themselves when collaboratively working with Apparat as Moderat.
