Moderat is a collaboration between Modeselektor and Apparat. 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. Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary (Modeselektor) are bass music heroes while Sascha Ring (Apparat) fuses tricky electronics with heartfelt and auspicious pop. Together they explore the epitome of the Berlin sound, but nonetheless lift the sounds of the city to another level. Perhaps their secret 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. Twelve years after their first meeting, Modeselektor and Apparat have come together once again: to more mature, but not worldly-wise, wiser, but not unquestioning, more experienced but without having sacrificed any of their pioneer spirit.
