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 that form Moderat. They are the coming together of two of the most renowned German electronic projects, Modeselektor and Apparat.

Now Moderat are working on their third album. Being their most mature work to date, it deals with the global breakbeat continuum to a lesser extent. They direct their gaze inward, wondering: Where do we stand as humans, as men, as artists, as dads (in the case of Sebastian and Gernot)? In the lyrics, Apparat gives an unfiltered insight into his personal take on the journey we call life. Inspiring us with his inexhaustible creativity and his visions, he is opening up, discussing his shadow, his fears and doubts as well. Modeselektor reach another level, developing an intoxicating energy with their unique rhythmical textures. Movie people say that contradictions create believable characters, and you will find a lot of contradictions in the music of Moderat: fun and profoundness, ecstasy and melancholy. Within the frenzy of the strobe lights, Moderat do not only make you sweat. They might make you shed a tear as well.
