Moderat Is Back


Moderat is the electronic music collaboration between Apparat and the Modeselektor duo, a project that, how could it not, originated in Berlin. After the release of their highly successful first album Moderat in 2009 they amazed the world with an astonishing live performance as well.

We’re really happy to hear that the German trio has finished their new album II, which will be released worldwide on Monkeytown Records on August 2nd. As the first upfront single from their upcoming album II Moderat have chosen the enchanting Bad Kingdom, a song that perfectly unites the 2 main musical elements of the project: pop & club.

The first single goes with an awesome video as well, the Moderat buddies Pfadfinderei made a video for them once again, they have been responsible for Modeselektor’s live visual show too.

The story is set in and around London, England in the year 1966 and features a descendent of the English aristocracy who turns from being an ambitious young man into a ruthless power broker. A hand-drawn imagery tell a story of corruption and greed, a truly Bad Kingdom.
