  • Schiller: Opus

    A perfect marriage between classical and electronic music as consecrated by Deutsche Grammophon.

    Germany has always been at the forefront of music. From classical era composers, such as Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms and Schumann to early electronic experiments by the likes of Karlheinz Stockhausen, Gottfried Koenig, and Klaus Schulze, Germany has been pushing the evolution of sound, and some may argue that it is the catalyst for many of the emerging genres. Today, German electronic music is shaped by the sounds of Sascha Ring (Apparat), Hendrik Weber (Pantha…

  • Moderat: II

    Germany’s reigning electronic kings Modeselektor and Apparat unite yet again for II, a collection of danceable yet curiously melancholy tracks. Amidst the moody fray, however, are some would-be pop hits that show just how far these guys have come along.

    To use the word “supergroup" when discussing Moderat, the joint venture of German electronic mainstays Modeselektor and Apparat, is a little more than misleading. As the recent documentary We are Modeselektor attests, the German electronic music scene is a genial, friendly place, and more often than not one is likely to stumble on popular musicians chatting as were they old friends. Such is especially the case with Apparat and Modeselektor, who have had similar stories…

  • Stream Moderat II

    When they released their self-titled debut album four years ago, the Berlin-based smart-thump trio Moderat found an ideal middle ground between their component parts — the cerebral stutters of Modeselektor and the emotive deep-house of Apparat. And now they’ve gotten the band back together for another album, the creatively titled II. And even in a [...]

  • Meet Jon Hopkins – the next Brian Eno?

    From studying the sound of hotel water pipes to stealing chord patterns from a reversing lorry, Jon Hopkins likes to go the extra mile when adding a little human warmth to his electronic music

    On a grotty east London corner, by a long-shuttered-up pub and a railway, Jon Hopkins's studio disguises itself well. Inside we find a small, pristine room filled with shiny technology: analogue synthesisers, Kaoss pads, a huge glittering iMac. A doormat separates Hopkins's warren from the rest of the building; the words always make Hopkins smile. "Fuck off," it says.

  • Modeselektor to Be Profiled in New Documentary

    Long-running German electronic duo Modeselektor are still extremely active, putting out a steady stream of new music from their 50Weapons and Monkeytown Records imprints, as well as preparing their next collaboration with Apparat as Moderat.

  • Apparat: Krieg und Frieden (Music for Theatre)

    Apparat's musical accompaniment to a German theatre production of War and Peace oscillates from delicate pizzicato to violent squalls of white noise, struggling to find a balance between the two.

    The last time we heard from Apparat, faces were quite literally melted. I'm of course referring to "Goodbye", the mournful highlight of his 2011 studio LP The Devil's Walk, which was used as the background music to Gus Fring's slow-mo walk to his final encounter with Walter White in the unforgettable season 4 finale of Breaking Bad. That season found the program at its most tense and explosive, and "Goodbye" -- while perhaps too much…
