For 15 years, Modeselektor have been gods of minimal and maximal techno, blowing the roof off of giant 5000 person festivals and small warehouse rooms alike. They’re also really sweet dudes who clearly love hanging out with each other. We Are Modeselektor, screening at the MFA, chronicles the duo’s rise to their current status as legends, starting way back at the reunification of Germany and the warehouse rave days. It’s a story of art in a time of politics, of friendshid, and—let’s not forget—of really badass techno.
