Reminder ** HEADHUNTER # Prototype (Modeselektor’s Broken Handbrake Remix) / Sex at The Prom

** REPOST **

Ltd 12″ on Tempa in deluxe foil blocked sleeve DUE 23/11/09

You better be on your Shop TODAY….will be out of stock as fast as Slayer’s Tickets last week in Paris…

* For the next 12″ in the Tempa Ltd. series (Numbered, Limited Edition vinyl packaged in a deluxe foil-blocked sleeve) Apparat collaborators and Thom Yorke favourites Modeselektor reinterpret ’Prototype’, a choice cut from Headhunter’s debut LP ’Nomad’ (TempaCD014).

* Harnessing the driving bassline of the original, Modeselektor create a greater sense of pace and alertness, fusing Headhunter’s ethereal dubstep qualities with an altogether more Berlin techno feel.

* ’Sex At the Prom’, on the southside, underlines Headhunter’s ability for drawing from surrounding genres. Rigid bass stabs incessantly pound an otherwise sparse soundscape into submission – Mary Anne Hobbs has already blown-up one sound system with this track – before pausing as if to check it’s minimal counterpart still breathes. This respite is enough for the percussion to find its second wind and – aided by a warped synth line – the battle continues on more even terms, rounding out a heavily pulsating 12″ that begs to be played out on a massive sound-system.

* Tracklist:
A>> Prototype (Modeselektor’s Broken Handbrake Remix) [Listen]
B>> Sex At TheProm
