Modeselektor – Berlin
Modeselektor needed a video for their new single and a couple really wanted Modeselektor to play at their wedding. Both got what they wanted. The album is full of hits but “Berlin” is definitely one of the better tracks. Listen to this album while biking, it’s a perfect combination.
We want to get married, and we want Modeselektor to play there … They’ll NEVER come and play at a wedding … And we wouldn’t be able to afford them … Weeks later I emailed Monkeytown Records in order to prove to Meike, my future wife, that this idea will always stay an idea … One day later at the phone – Monkeytown: “You contacted us at the perfect moment – we urgently need a good video because someone flaked on us!” One Skype conversation with Modeselektor … 3 weeks of hard work and little sleep … cardboard everywhere … lots of computer crashes and … Modeselektor will play at our wedding – hurray!
