    Sónar by Night - SonarClub

Music for the masses

It's official. Moderat are now one of the most dependable and popular groups in electronic music today, following a whistlestop 2016, where their shows and releases have clocked up excellent reviews on websites, magazines and forums the world over. On Friday night at SonarClub we will be able to enjoy their powerful stage show, featuring a spectacular lighting and stage design, and of course, tracks which have become hits for a whole new generation of clubbers. The recent release of their new album, “III”, more than confirms their excellent run of form.

Moderat began as a collaborative project between Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary (Modeselektor) and Sacha Ring (Apparat). Originally intended as a side project for when their respective individual projects allowed time, ever since the release of their first material back in 2009, it was evident that the new group could transcend and grow far beyond their original expectations. Songs like “Rusty Nails”, “A New Error” and “Bad Kingdom” are already mini classics in today's electronica scene, to which we can now add their most recent work, including “Reminder” and “Running.” If we add to this their alliance with Pfadfinderei, the creative team behind their spectacular live show, the results are a project operating at full tilt that has managed to totally connect with the tastes of an ever growing and increasingly large fan base.
