Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin's legendary party outfit Modeselektor, seem to have grown up just a little bit with their new self curated Monkeytown imprint presenting a debut release from good buddy Siriusmo. It's easy to see why the two are mates as their shared absurdist sense of humour masks accomplished technical capabilities guaranteed to murder the dancefloor. Siriusmo's releases for Boys Noize and Exploited have constantly pestered a style of cheeky electro-disco which they attack from six angles on 'The Uninvited Guest'. Firstly 'The Door' rocks out with liquored-up guitars and gnarled sawtooth synthlines to fry your feet, before 'High Together' delivers a sardonic rave moment with blasts of Euphoric euro synthlines and disco bass sounding like Soundstream versus his label mentors. On the flip 'Nights Off' sounds uncannily like Radiohead's 'Everything In Its Right Place' before swinging off into melodic Berlin party styles, while 'Let Me In' is the anthem-in-waiting, sounding like Switch in a dance-off with Mr Oizo. If Dubstep's screwface stoicism is getting to you or you're bored with all the doom jazz bands around, this is the perfect antidote. Very cool wares.
