Apparat and Modeselektor ... like chocolate and peanut butter. Together they make Moderat, the electronic music innovators that are bringing us their next album, not so innovatively titled II. But who cares about the title? It's Moderat, baby!
The new Moderat album arrives on Aug. 2 on Modeselktor's own Monkytown Records, and of course they'll be playing shows for the release. Right now it's just three festivals, but more dates are on the way. For now they offered the following quote:
"We have known each other for 12 years now, and during that time we haven't really changed that much: We are still three guys mostly talking about hihats and tape machines while hanging out in the studio.
Moderat as a fusion of Modeselektor and Apparat is a mutual path that hasn't been and will never be easy. It's simply more than 'just' making music together. It is, again and again, an experiment of exploring our similarities and differences and interlacing them into something new and exciting."
