For the past 10 years, the triumphant and party-crazed German duo Modeselektor and their Monkeytown Records imprint have been gracing the global electronic music scene with a whole host of weird and fearless dance music that has redefined clubland.

With almost 100 releases under its belt, the label has given rise to commended acts like FJAAK, Gajek, Siriusmo, Otto von Schirach, Dark Sky, Howling and more. Between acting as a home to Modeselektor and Apparat's wildly successful Moderat project to featuring ubiquitous, challenging and totally badass compositions on it's critically acclaimed 'Modeselektion' compilation series, Monkeytown Records is a vital international hub for electronic music.

On June 14, the Berlin-based label will be releasing an anniversary compilation titled '10 Years Of Monkeytown' which will feature new tracks from longtime label affiliates such as Redshape, Siriusmo, Dark Sky, Mouse On Mars, Shed, FJAAK and label bosses Modeselektor. Pre-order it here.
