Review: Moderat – Sea Monkey (Untold and Surgeon remixes)
Moderat, the alliance of genre-breaking duo Modeselektor and electronica wunderkind Apparat, unleash the first set of remixes for one of the stand-out tracks from their debut album, “Sea Monkey”.
The first round comes from dubstep producer of the moment Untold (from the Hotflush camp) and first wave techno head Surgeon.
While Untold builds on the original’s percussion lines and takes us on an emotionally heavy wild ride with pounding low frequencies carried by shuffled two-step grooves, Surgeon creates a full-metal industrial atmosphere leaving you wondering if you just arrived at an underground rave party located in an abandoned factory or accidentally ended up on the set of a nerve-wracking horror movie.
