Native Sessions: Discussing Monkey Business with Modeselektor and Gajek
15:00 - 15:45
De Brakke Grond (G2 Panel Room) | Nes 45, Amsterdam
German powerhouse duo Modeselektor, a.k.a. Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary discuss their legacy as cultural leaders in today’s modern electronic music sphere. From their own productions, through to their work in establishing leading imprints Monkeytown Records, and 50 Weapons as both era-defining labels, and hubs for community centred arts and events, the German duo have set themselves apart as acute tastemakers with their unique, and individual style. Having created their own musical ecosystem, with an array of new and exciting talent from across the globe, defining their sound and aesthetics through an identity that is very much their own, Modeselektor have become ambassadors of forward thinking music.
Sitting down with Tony Nwachukwu and one the label’s latest and exciting acts Gajek, Bronsert and Szary discuss the importance of developing new talent, how they’ve managed to create their own model organisation, while reflecting upon some of the more integral points in their production history.
