Back in 2012 we hit the road with Modeselektor to chart their journey to become one of Germany’s premier electronic acts, travelling with the duo across Mexico, Denmark, Belgium and beyond. The result was the acclaimed ‘WE ARE MODESELEKTOR!’ documentary. Formerly only available on DVD and Blu-Ray, it can now be watched online and in full for the very first time, exclusively through the Telekom Electronic Beats TV channel.
WE ARE MODESELEKTOR!
A film by ROMI AGEL & HOLGER WICK
„An odd duo that raises international mass hysteria and has been creating a credible sound for years now – Modeselektor seems to be a phenomenon in itself.
The search for the origin of this phenomenon leads us into the depths of the biographies of two kids born and raised in East Germany, whose creativity, enthusiasm and idea of a collective brought them from the Berlin suburbs to the city itself and the stages of the world.
To consistently retrace this path the documentary offers a rich variety of archive material, extensive behind the scenes tour footage and the travels to important places of the past and present.
As a result there are very private insights into Sebastian Szary’s and Gernot Bronsert’s life as subversive artists who are – despite their broad success – authentic and who over the years stayed true to where they came from.“
