Moderat are an electronic super group from Germany. ‘Mode’ is taken from Modeselektor, two DJs/producers from Berlin who mix anything you might want to dance to, and can count Radiohead's Thom Yorke as one of their biggest fans. ‘Rat’ is from Apparat, also known as Sascha Ring, another member of dance royalty from the German capital. Modeselektor deliver cadence and pulse. Apparat is the conjurer of sounds, the man of poetry. He strives for elegance and poise on the dance floor, and never brute strength. Moderat was one of the undisputed highlights of Rock Werchter 2014. “This alliance has more than 30 years of experience in electronic music”, wrote De Morgen. “Hardly surprising, then, that the trio produces the best beats, baselines and sound effects in the business today”.
