Moderat is an electronic music project that originated in Berlin, Germany. It started as a collaboration between Sascha Ring, also known as Apparat, and Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary, also known as Modeselektor. Their first full length album was released seven years after their first EP, due to some creative disagreements and different opinions on how they should work.

The album Moderat has received mostly favorable reviews. NOW Magazine[1] gave the album 4 out of 5 points describing it as "quite creative and surprisingly catchy", and Urb[2] 5 out of 5, praising it for being "extremely beautiful and catchy".

In 2009, the readers of popular online electronic music magazine, Resident Advisor, voted Moderat "The #1 Live Act Of The Year".[3] In 2010, they were voted "The #7 Live Act"[4] by the leaders of the same website.

Moderat toured Europe throughout the summer and autumn of 2010, playing mostly festivals.

In March 2012, Modeselektor announced on their Facebook fanpage that they would start work on a second album later that year.

Moderat's highly anticipated second album, "Moderat II" is rumored to be released in late July 2013
