051/100 - "II" by Moderat
Moderat - the collaboration between Sascha Ring aka Apparat, and Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary from Modeselektor - make a bleeding-edge form of dance-orientated electronica that I have only recently come to acknowledge and appreciate. Whilst familiar with Apparat, Modeselektor were new to me.
I picked up Moderat's album - "II" - for £1 on Sunday and have been enjoying their big bouncy synths, deep bass, hypnotic percussion, skittering rhythms and delightful vocals ever since.
I can see where Thom Yorke got some inspiration for his solo work, this is a heady combination of style and substance that has me wanting more.
Why only 100 words?
