Hardly anybody has brought electronic music from Berlin to the farthest flung corners of the world with more passion and enthusiasm than these two heavyweights.

Modeselektor – Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary – are bass music heroes. Together with a veritable army of collaborators, guest artists and with their two labels Monkeytown and 50Weapons, they have built a broad network.

They assimilate and process the tiniest vibrations in the global bass continuum and at the same time, their wobbly salvos and their oblique sense of humour are unmistakable. They became known to a select audience through their records on BPitch Control with which they catapulted themselves out of
the Berlin 4/4 cosmos, whilst simultaneously reflecting the raw and full-on spirit of the 1990s Berlin club scene.

Apparat (real name: Sascha Ring) could hardly be more opposite. He fuses tricky electronics with heartfelt and auspicious pop. Together with T.Raumschmiere, he founded Shitkatapult. From early on, Apparat realised that the LP was his preferred form of expression. With each album, he reinvented himself on a personal, stylistic and social level: gradually bringing ever more strata of his emotional persona to light, exploring previously unknown musical styles and involving guest musicians in the process.

In the lyrics, Apparat gives an unfiltered insight into his personal take on the journey we call life. Inspiring us with his inexhaustable creativity and his visions, he is opening up, discussing his shadow, his fears and doubts as well.

Modeselektor reach another level, developing an intoxinating energy with their unique rhythmical textures. Movie people say that contraditions create believable characters, and you will find a lot of contraditions in the music of Moderat: fun and profundness, ecstasy and melancholy. Within the frenzy of the strobe lights, Moderat do not only make you sweat. They might make you shed a tear as well.

They will be performing tracks from their backcatalogue including their latest album 'III' released via Monkeytown Music earlier this year.
