Moderat, the Berlin based electronic group formed by Apparat & Modeselektor, happily announce their second studio album, II, to be released digitally on August 2nd and physically August 6th worldwide via Monkeytown Records.
Alongside standard CD and single LP formats, Moderat will release II in an exclusive Deluxe Edition 2xCD and 2xLP vinyl for fans and collectors. The Monkeytown Records webshop will exclusively offer a limited edition color vinyl version of the Deluxe Edition 2xLP vinyl.
“Moderat is Gernot, Szary and Sascha.
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.
Anyway, we are happy to share MODERAT II with you!
Gernot, Szary & Sascha”
