Hardly anybody has brought electronic music from Berlin to the farthest flung corners of the world with more passion and enthusiasm than Apparat & Modeselektor.
In late 2012, twelve years after their first meeting, Modeselektor and Apparat have come together once again to reform their Moderat project: more mature, but not worldly-wise, wiser but not unquestioning, more experienced but without having sacrificed any of their pioneer spirit. The sophomore album “II”, released early August on Monkeytown Records, has been climbing the alum sales charts across Europe: Top 10 in Germany, Top 40 in Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands and Position 73 in the UK, something neither Apparat nor Modeselektor have accomplished on their own so far.
When the Moderat debut album was released on Bpitch Control in 2009, Modeselektor decided to release an “unofficial” remix 12inch on their newly formed 50 Weapons imprint featuring remixes by Shackleton, Headhunter and T++.
To follow this ritual, Moderat have now invited their friends Shed (present here under his prolific Head High moniker) and Marcel Dettmann to contribute remixes for the new album “II”. Again released as “unofficial” remixes, out of the regular line of singles on Monkeytown Records, you can enjoy 2 stunning techno reworks by 2 close friends, who happen to be none less than 2 of the world´s best producers.
