The cleverly dubbed Moderat — the profound collaboration between bass gods Modeselektor (Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary) and vocalist Apparat (Sascha Ring) — is about to come out with a new album, II, due August 6 on Mute. Their Pfadfinderei directed and produced music video “Bad Kingdom” tells “a story of corruption and greed” via beautiful hand-drawn illustrations, its narrative perfectly fitting the track’s poignant mood. Typical Moderat: throbbing subterranean bass and wicked breadkbeats on one hand, Apparat’s delicate vocals on the other. Moderat will be touring extensively this summer, check out the full tour dates after the video.
