BIMM Berlin Patrons Modeselektor announce two new Scholarships

Here at BIMM Berlin, we’re proud to announce our brand new and potentially life-changing BIMM Berlin Music Production Scholarship programme. And that’s not all. Our scholarships are awarded by our new patrons: the legendary German electronic music duo Modeselektor.

Our two innovative BIMM Berlin Scholarships are for two lucky students who epitomise exceptional talent and creativity in music. Trust us, you will not want to miss out on this extraordinary opportunity.

The scholarships will cover each student’s first year of study on a three-year Music Production bachelor’s degree course, starting this academic year (October 2019).

Modeselektor: our new Patrons

With years of music industry experience, Modeselektor bring decades of knowledge and expertise to BIMM Berlin. How amazing to be able to say you were awarded your Music Production degree by none other than Modeselektor?

Modeselektor (comprised of Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary) have been shaping and defining the electronic music scene since the early 2000s with their genre-meshing productions and electrifying DJ sets. They formed in the early 90s while involved in the rave scene on the outskirts of Berlin.

Recognition for the duo soon expanded far beyond the techno scene as they toured with Radiohead and collaborated with artists such as Maximo Park and Paul St. Hilaire. They are about to release their fourth album, ‘Who Else’.

But they’ve also branched out into the business side of the industry. In 2009, Modeselektor founded their own imprint Monkeytown Records while simultaneously running the more dancefloor-focused sublabel 50Weapons. Joining forces with Sascha Ring, the duo also released three albums under the name Moderat. This raised the bar for electronic pop music – and led to sold-out shows around the globe.

We’re nothing but delighted to be sponsoring these two fantastic Music Production scholarships at BIMM Berlin. Supporting students and the next generation in starting their music careers is something that’s incredibly important to us – and what better way to do this than through sponsoring a programme like this at somewhere so innovative like BIMM?

As well as sponsoring our new scholarships, Modeselektor will also be giving a Masterclass in October especially for our lucky scholarship students and BIMM Berlin students. And if that wasn’t enough, they’ll also be attending our Graduation in November!

Nick Donovan, College Principal of BIMM Germany, is thrilled to have Modeselektor on board. “It is an honour to have Modeselektor as patrons. Their work has shaped the electronic music scene. And these scholarships will be truly life-changing opportunities for the lucky recipients.”
