Modeselektor are Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary, two bon vivants from Berlin who have been making humor-dipped, musically-exciting and dance-stimulating night-time entertainment for nearly ten years. Among numerous remixes, they have released not less than four EPs at BPitch Control -- this is their first full-length release. Taking the lead in a post-techno parade along a gorgeous boulevard of heavy basses, Hello Mom! works like a sampler for acute/def/contemporary/wicked electronic music blatancy. Modeselektor's adaptation of urban catchwords like electro-IDM, booty house, Euro-crunk, continental grime, ghetto-bass, dub-step and such even get the most bored know-it-all off the barstools. Here's a taste: the record starts with a collaboration with TTC from France, in the manic shredder "Dancing Box," then turns to rap and rave-monsters such as "Rap Anthem," "Kill Bill Vol. 4" and the P. Diddy campaign-named "Vote or Die." "Earth (UPS Edit)" is made of arcane stumbling sounds that wobble just like the planet, followed by Paul St. Hillaire arguing about "Fake Emotions" along with slack bubbling melodies. The Sri Lankan Sasha Perera, singer of the Berlin-Tel Aviv trio Jahcoozi, is featured on "Silikon," a track packed with urban grime. The merrily euphoric finale "I Love You" goes out to all the Moms.
