From the press release:
Moderat are Apparat (Sascha Ring) and Modeselektor (Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary). Both acts represent the Berlin electronic scene from the other side of the straight bass drum. On one side, there is Apparat, the thoughtful purveyor of sophisticated electronic pop music, and on the other, Modeselektor, the grand masters of subterranean bass and electrifying breakbeat. Together, the extreme contrast between Modeselektor’s throbbing bass and tricky beats and Apparat’s delicate vocals have created the unique Moderat vibe.
