The mighty Moderat – a combination of two of the best things to have come out of Germany since Erdinger (Modeselektor and Apparat) – supply Clash’s exclusive DJ mix this week, in part one of a two-week takeover of the podcast by BPitch Control – Berlin’s beast of an electronica label. Yum.
Beginning with some… unusual canine sounds (best not to ask), Moderat’s mix slides into the lush tones of the deservedly hyped Darkstar track, ‘Aidy’s Girl’s a Computer’ (giving a cogent example of where UK funky should be headed), before unveiling some garagey, grimy goodness from Untold, a few tasty remixes (including a Zomby rework of Martyn’s ‘Hear Me’, and a Joy Orbison remix of Four Tet) and some techno delights from Marcel Dettmann.
Not that either of the two acts in question really need any introduction, but in case you vowed not to listen to any good music last year, Moderat produced one of the most-anticipated electronic highlights of 2009 with their self-titled album (not forgetting the considerable individual triumphs of Modeselektor and Apparat) before taking their immense sound on the road with a series of live shows.
A mix of deep, uncompromising electronica and future dub from two artists on the cutting edge of dance music.
