Today we are excited to partner with NPR and present Moderat’s new album, II, in its entirety via their “First Listen” series. Listen as Modeselektor’s thundering bass rumbles in the cellar and Apparat’s sensitive, subtle melodies float high in the eaves. In the space of eleven tracks, Moderat present a varied, but nonetheless compact and epic tale.
“The German dance music duo Modeselektor makes music that can knock your head off its axis. Electronic producer Sascha Ring, better known as Apparat, has made the kind of stuff that buries your heart deep in your gut. Moderat, the project that unites these two seemingly disparate energies, finds a sweet spot that resonates with both body and mind.”
