The group is made up of the Berlin due Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary, who, with Monkeytown, have worked to meld the styles of intelligent dance music, electro, and hip hop to create a complex and visceral style that is being called the group’s return to club music.
Modeselektor is fresh off of their summer two of the United States, and have plans to return stateside after their European tour in early 2012.
