What we said:
Top three things that make our hearts sink: 1. supergroups 2. portmanteaus 3. the words “feat. Pitbull”. So it speaks volumes about Moderat’s music that they can offend on two of those counts (don’t worry, Mr P’s been nowhere near this) and still escape with a big, fat, shiny gold star from us. As with their eponymous debut, II is the perfect blend of Modeselektor’s club-friendly bass music and Apparat’s glitchy, introverted electronica. It’s intelligent, it’s propulsive, and it’s a set that’s worthy of two of the finest electronic artists in Berlin.
