Here’s a nice little curio pointed out to me by Ghislain Poirier in our interview for the book last year. The first release on Modeselektor’s Fifty Weapons label – which in recent years has gone from strength to strength in the dance world – was a white label by the German duo in the finest blend tradition of the 00s. They took 50 Cent’s ‘Just A Little Bit’ accapella and went to town with it over Dabrye’s ‘Game Over’ instrumental and Ghislain’s own ‘Don’t Smile It’s Postmodern’ – both of which we’d included in the ABBC mix.
Released in 2006, it shows the deeper connections between the new school of hip hop beats and the electronic and dance music world. A clear party piece, no doubt put together by the pair for their live shows.
