Berlin based supergroup Moderat is 2/3 Modeselektor & 1/3 Apparat. They have released a trilogy of LP's in the last 6 years and a slew of 10's & 12's.
Combining Apparat's sublime and thoughtful vocals with Modeselektor's driving techno rhythms the band has succeeded in defining the Melodic Techno genre and is much loved by artists like Jon Hopkins & Aparde.
Their second LP is our favorite (also the toughest one for us to stock as we refuse to stock the poorly pressed Mute USA single disc edition in favor of the Monkeytown European 2xlp edition). Each album needs to be explored many many times to reveal its full beauty.
