Moderat are Apparat (Sascha Ring) and Modeselektor (Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary). Both acts represent the best of the Berlin electronic music scene—embracing the groundbreaking sounds being cultivated by this raw melting pot of artists and sounds. Moderat is a shared vision and their new album, IIis the joyful creation of what happens when you let three visionaries do their thing and learn from each other.
Modeselektor are grand masters of subterranean bass and electrifying breakbeats. Apparat is the purveyor of sophisticated electronic pop music. The refusal to be satisfied with what is available forms the bond of an artistic friendship that has lasted more then a decade. The fact that their individual projects are so absorbing precluded the possibility of a continuous collaboration.
