Otto Von Schirach Monkeys Around With Modeselektor in "Evil Twin" Video
He called the collabo track a "banger," which is a spot-on description of the glitchy, pulsating beat that dominates "Evil Twin," a song off 2011's Monkeytown.
In its dark and twisted sort of way, "Twin" is pure techno. It's the kind of cut that crushes entire crowds at Winter Music Conference or the Electric Pickle.
And while Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary's production are worthy of praise, Otto's ominous vocals really propel the track to the absolute limit of its particular chaotic trajectory.

"One of the reasons we work a lot together is because Gernot and
Sebastian like the way I record my vocals, so it makes it easier
for them if I'm not in Berlin," Otto told Crossfade back in September.
This month, the track finally gets a promotional push with a music video featuring a pair of monkeys fighting through OS X windows and an Otto cameo via iChat.
