Moderat’s sound is reminiscent, stylistically, of a high contrast image, the shadowy bass of Modeselektor never quite blending with Apparat’s aloof pop highlights.
While the masses found themselves packed into crowds at Tiësto, Bassnectar, and A-Trak on Day 2 of Electric Zoo, a few hundred festival-goers enjoyed some breathing room and a special treat at the Hilltop Arena from Modeselektor + Apparat brainchild, Moderat. Unlike the Boys Noizes, Fehrplays, and Mat Zos that graced the rotating stage earlier in the day, the trio opted for the more traditional static stage, shying away from the rotating apparatus. The trio’s purpose was more aural than vision: They there to showcase their newest album, Moderat II, with Electric Zoo being the last 2013 stop of only three in the US.

Moderat is the child of German duo Modeselektor and Apparat, and the trio are back with their second (appropriately named) LP, II, due out on August 6. The eleven track effort is a shining example of modern electronic music and the full album is now available for a full and uninterrupted stream on NPR’s website. It’s part dreamy and ambient, part dark and dramatic, and well-supported by Apparat’s vocals throughout. Although the individual styles of these artists may not seem totally confluent with one another, II never seems to indicate any real conflict.
