Moderat

In this age of mega EDM, there’s something reassuring about the genuineness of Berlin electronic music. And the Modeselektor–Apparat melding Moderat is something of a stylistic banquet, showing off the astonishing range of each artist’s musical proclivities. From gossamer dream-pop (“Let In the Light”), to rarefied funk (“Therapy”), to haunting, celestial elegies (“This Time,” “Ilona”), to inescapably infectious nouveau-soul ( “Bad Kingdom”), II is the perfect 21st-century escape from so much banal guitar music.
