Modeselektor calls their sound “Russian crunk.” But they are, as Londoners might say, royally taking the piss. Hailing from Germany, the duo work in a variety of tempos and styles with an emphasis on big, warpy synth sounds and the kind of heavy basslines that can threaten foundations. With plenty of artist albums and Moderat, their joint project with Apparat, it is as an audio/visual live act that they’ve truly conquered hearts and minds. In this episode of Couch Wisdom recorded at the 2010 Red Bull Music Academy in London, they bring the same anarchic disdain and chaos they’re known for in their live sets while discussing everything from the fall of the Berlin Wall and German record store Hard Wax to Moderat.
