Beyond Playlist: Modeselektor Body Language Vol. 8

Modeselektor Body Language Vol. 8 Get Physical Music

On Modeselektor's Body Language mix, the duo show an inventive and exciting approach to track selection and mixing. It's not easy to pull together a set that includes everything from Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes to Animal Collective, with lots of space in between for material such as Robert Hood's "Unix" and a couple of Modeselektor's own technolicious tracks. Despite the omnivorous, anything-good-goes approach, the disc has an excellent flow and it's easy to see how a similar set could actually work on a dance floor with some minor tweaks. Yes, some of the transitions are moderately stark, but none are less than musical and there's nothing that makes you stop and ask, "WTF just happened?" It's a fresh, exciting mix that gets better with repeat listens and by the time they wrap things up with the gorgeous pulse of Moderat's "A New Error," you'll be ready to start it over and dive back in.
