"2013 has been a year of working on a new album. A year of living in Los Angeles, taking a lot of hikes, eating a lot of kale and getting in tune with a lot of vibrations. It's been a year of discoveries also, mostly the discovery that real life can be stranger than fiction, and that the future is now, and that everything can kill you.
Here are some things i found out about in the science/tech world that blew my mind throughout 2013 and how they could probably kill you."
To celebrate 15 years of Modular Recordings, and the opening of our new London office, for the next month we're offering 15 or so Modular records at special prices in stores around the UK - including hit releases from Cut Copy, Pond, The Presets and Tame Impala.
Additionally, buying a Modular record at participating stores will also get you the Modular Supersampler, a ten-track CD featuring rare cuts from Tame Impala, Cut Copy, Bag Raiders and more.
Confirmed participating stores so far:
Not in the UK? You can still be part of it - drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and the subject line 'Supersampler' and we'll send ten copies to ten randomly selected people, wherever you live.
Modyssey is a trip through recent releases from the Modular Recordings catalogue. Taking in a choice range of singles, remixes and deep album cuts, it includes the likes of Tame Impala, Cut Copy, Canyons, The Presets, Bag Raiders, Pond, Young Dreams and more.

The Bag Raiders boys, procrastinating from recording their new album in the studio, jumped into the YouTube black hole and came back out holding a playlist of some top-shelf beach jams. Could be a coincidence, but it fits perfectly ahead of their weekend stay in a couple weeks time on the island paradise of Hvar in Croatia for FOR 2013.
Bag Raiders will be taking control of the decks on the Saturday night alongside 2manydjs, James Murphy and more. Full line-up here.
Modular is proud to announce FOR 2013, an intimate, luxurious music experience, taking place on the Croatian island of Hvar, June 21st through 23rd, 2013.
The line-up features Tame Impala, Solange, James Blake, 2manyDJs (DJ Set), James Murphy (DJ Set), Nicolas Jaar, Bag Raiders, Tensnake, Canyons, Jacques Greene, Kate Boy, Horse Meat Disco, Young Dreams, SymbolOne and more to come...
Only 2000 tickets will be available for this event. They are on sale now as 3-Day FOR passes, get yours here.
The crafty boys of Bag Raiders are hitting up Australia over the next couple months with a huge string of dates. They'll be putting out some sweet beats to make memories to. That's right; memories. Unforgettable nights of memories. Priceless stuff. Dates below.
There's also a cheeky little dalliance into Bali & Jakarta early in January for travelers and our Indonesian friends. More info on all of the dates right here.
We love a good sale but what we love even more is those treasures you find. The rare items that make you squeal. That limited pressing that gives you goosebumps.
To celebrate that feeling and record stores everywhere, the ModShop is proud to present a selection of super limited test pressings of some of our big releases of the last couple years.
Next Friday Bag Raiders will celebrate the release of the digital deluxe reissue of their debut self-titled album, the deluxe edition features the original favourites and includes 10 new remixes. It's officially released April 6 (alongside their Leave Them All Behind mix) but you can listen all week here at Rdio.
Catch them as they hot-step their way across Australia at the following dates.
With the release of the fourth edition of Modular's Leave Them All Behind compilation series, mixed by our very own Bag Raiders, we thought we'd send them across Australia over the Easter period to throw down their own breed of electronic goodness and share some good times.
Leave Them All Behind 4 is out via itunes March 11 (UK/EU) and April 6 (AUS). Lucky Europeans can get the double CD now at Urban Outfitters + all good music stores. Tour dates and a free download below.
On Saturday night before the 54th Grammy Awards, Modular and Puma co-hosted a get-together at the Penthouse Suite of the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood to celebrate Cut Copy's nomination.

The guests of honour, Cut Copy also got behind the decks while friends Diplo, Digitalism, Kelis, Robyn, Reggie Watts, Midnight Juggernauts and many more turned up to make it quite a special night. Big shout out to our sponsors Puma, Bushmills, and Kanon Vodka for all their help in making Saturday night a killer night
