Modeselektor gets Delhi on the dance floor at Lap The Club

MUMBAI: One of the hottest electronic acts across the globe, Berlin based Modeselektor, gave Delhi some serious music love as a part of their two city tour presented by Red Bull Music Academy.

Earlier in the day, the Red Bull Music Academy session brought under one roof about 50 independent artists, producers and members of the industry. The Indian indie scene was well represented by the likes of Jivraj Singh, an RBMA alumni and member of the newly formed Dualist Inquiry Band, Nucleya and Arsh Sharma from Fuzz Culture among others.

Modeselektor took the audience through their history, their experiences and the distinct brand of music that they alone can lay claim to.

Formed in 1996 by childhood friends Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary a.k.a Modeselektor described their own sound as ‘wildly diverse, infused with exuberance and inspired by a ‘slap of the absurd’.

In an informal chat, Modeselektor spoke about their genesis in the chaos of a newly united Germany, trans-genre by design and named after a function on an audio analog device.

Modeselektor has three acclaimed studio albums to their name, multiple compilations, EPs and remixes, apart from also working with acclaimed recording artists over the years including Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

Talking about their future plans they said, “We love being around people! And one idea that we want to bring to life is to create a camp, where musicians and aficionados, both adults and children, can come together and explore different genres of music.”

Later in the evening, the duo performed a high-energy DJ set to a raging crowd at The Lap! They spun some of their most popular numbers like “Evil Twin “and “German Clap” making sure everyone was on their feet!

Red Bull Music Academy is an international platform for those who shape the musical future around the globe. The Academy has brought legendary drummer Bernard Purdie, electronic music maverick Dorian Concept and producer Justin Blaze to India in the past.
