Listen To A Rare Techno Re-Release From 1994 Off Modeselektor’s Just-Revived Label

You can also hear Marcel Dettmann remixing Lory D, taken from a new 12″ the label will release next week. 

Modeselektor have revived one of the ’90s most obscure and shortest-running techno labels. Seilscheibenpfeiler Schallplatten will resume releasing music after a 24-year hiatus, starting with a re-release of their only record, a 4-track EP credited to Fundamental Knowledge & Dr. Rhythm.

An alias of Modeselektor‘s Sebastian Szary at the time, Fundamental Knowledge’s revival comes after Szary found a box of 50 copies of the white label in his basement. Those records are now available for purchase on the label’s website alongside a digital version of the EP via their Bandcamp here.

Seilscheibenpfeiler will then turn their attention to new music, with their first original release coming from Italian techno and electro legend Lory D. Jam With Deaf Cats also features a Marcel Dettmann edit on the B-side, which you can hear below.

Stay tuned for more information on the label, which has already announced releases from Berlin-based producer Fadi Mohem and Toronto’s Nautiluss.

The Fundamental Knowledge & Dr. Rhythm white label is available for purchase now, and Lory D’s record will be available June 29. Head over to Seilscheibenpfeiler here for more information and to buy the physical releases,.
