The Mexican Canadian music label Infinite Machine has graciously given XLR8R access to a one-of-a-kind collaboartion between the powerhouse duo Modeselektorand the fresh, talented and emotive producer, Born In Flamez.
Born In Flamez is a “transhuman experiment” that shirks “notions of identity” and “subverts gender and genre” while Modeselektor is a hardcore and well-established electronic act that operates Monkeytown Records and previously oversaw the recently deceased label, 50Weapons. Born in Flamez debuted with a single ‘Time Hurtz’ on Modeselektor’s Modeselektion Vol. 3 compilation in July 2014 and they have now come together to collaborate on a new free single titled “TBF,” which is being offered up today as an XLR8R download. According to the track’s creators, they paired up “by chance in a dark corridor…united by sound.” Together they improvised TBF standing in a kitchen surrounded by a pile of dirty dishes and East German architecture.
The result of this improvisation is a ticking and affectional ballad that features BIF’s shivery vocals and rising chords that lead into shaded, low end synth progressions and gentle, blinking atmospherics.
