2012 has been another successful year in the relatively short history of Monkeytown Records.
Electronic legends Mouse on Mars joined the crew, Lazer Sword finally released their much anticipated second album and long-time Modeselektor collaborator Otto Von Schirach is the most colorful and wildest new signing. His new album "Supermeng" has just hit the stores in August. Not to forget the second volume of the bi-annual Modeselektion compilation series about which Boomkat says: "The last comp was a way for the lads to explain exactly where they were heading with the label, where this seems more like a celebration – a kind of “yeah we f*ckin’ did it”."
eLan, who took a bit of a break from producing this year, has compiled this digital only budget compilation and follows Lazer Sword, who impressivley presented last years selection. Featuring his personal highlights from this years label catalog "Best of Monkeytown Records 2012" contains 10 diverse tracks including 2 previously unreleased works by Mouse on Mars from their forthcoming mini-album "WOW", as well as another new and unreleased track by eLan himself.
You want to experience what Monkeytown Records is all about? This compilation is an easy and affordable way to find out. Just about 44 minutes of some of the main highlights of the year.
