Modeselektor – Berlin

Posted by Fabio 28 March 2012

New Modeselektor video featuring Miss Platnum, taken from their “Monkeytown Deluxe Tour Edition”. The cardboard-animation video was directed by François Chalet, a graphic designer who approached the band with the pipe dream of having them play his wedding right at the same time that the label was looking for someone to make the band a new video.

In the words of Chalet:
“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 proof 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!”
