Watch the trailer for Modeselektor’s forthcoming documentary

Prolific German duo Modeselektor will soon by the subject of a new documentary film, which has been revealed in the form of a 2-minute trailer.

Given that the duo are busy running both their 50 Weapons and Monkeytown imprints, working on a second Moderat album with Apparat and generally taking their singular brand of techno around the world on a weekly basis, Modeselektor make ideal subjects for a documentary. More so when you factor in the pair possess a sense of humour Рsomething all too rare in the world of electronic music.

Produced by Monkeytown in association with German magazine Electronic Beats, who announced the news earlier today,¬†We Are Modeselektor¬†promises to tell the duo’s story in 72 minutes “as a post-German reunification movie, a travel report, and a portrait of the special friendship between Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary all in one”. A trailer for the film, also featuring contributions from Apparat, Ellen Allien, and what looks like the back of Marcel Dettmann’s head can be viewed below; the film will be released through Monkeytown Records on May 3 on DVD and Blu-Ray.
