Hardly anybody has brought electronic music from Berlin to the farthest flung corners of the world with more passion and enthusiasm than these two heavyweights. Perhaps the secret of Modeselektor’s and Apparat’s collaboration lies in the fact that they never even tried to get close to one another. Modeselektor’s thundering bass rumbles in the cellar, Apparat’s sensitive and subtle melodies float high in the eaves. The fact that what one assumes to be incompatible actually communicates, is what makes Moderat so unique. The trio throws highly energetic breakbeats, powerful basslines, subtle hip-hop grooves, organic tribal sounds and emotional festival anthems in their musical fusion reactor. Moderat is not just a studio project: with a set of outstanding visuals, they have toured all five continents. Within the frenzy of the strobe lights, Moderat do not only make you sweat. They might make you shed a tear as well.
