Track of the Week - Warren
My track of the week is "Versions" By "Moderat"
Moderat is an electronic music project that originated in Berlin, Germany. It started as a collaboration between Sascha Ring, also known as Apparat, and Modeselektor members, Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary.
Being a long time fan of deep, moody and experimental electronic music, It came as no surprise that I fell in love with this group the instant I heard them. They pretty much broke through with their self-titled album "Moderat" Which includes this track and "Bad Kingdom". Give them a listen as they are pretty amazing!
I've included a fan made music video for the track using visual shots from the movie "Moon", Enjoy :)
