clara_moto

After spending three years away touring and working in the studio, Clara Moto (read here other things about Clara Moto) is preparing to return with the release of the five-track EP “Joy Departed” this month.

A second album “Blue Distance” will be released in November. The DJ spent the summer in the Canary Islands and travelled around Europe playing gigs and just exploring before returning to Berlin this month for the release of her first album.

Among the titles on the album are “Joy Departed”, “Disposable Darling”, and “For The Love WeLost” and in an interview with I Voice ClaraMoto said that many of the tracks reference literature or songs.

‘“Joy Departed” is from Edgar Allan Poe… and “Disposable Darling” is a line from Roxy Music’s “Every Dreamhome A Heartache”. That’s where I find my inspiration,’ she said.

ClaraMoto’s debut was “Polyamour” and she says the new material was all natural.

“That’s how I’ve been working over the last two years. I tried to make a lot of dance tracks but it ended up this way”, she said. ‘“Blue Distance” isn’t a dance album at all, really. It’s very satisfying having the freedom to do that.

Moderat ready to release second album

moderat

The Berlin techno super group Moderat is preparing to release its second album entitled II later  this year. The group, made up of Modeselektor with Sebastian Szary and Gernot Bronsert and Apparat (Sascha Ring). The trio has been working together for the last ten years after coming together to find ways to explore electronic music after meeting at a festival in Berlin.

One of the highlights of the new album, which was written in the dead of winter, is that all the beats were done from scratch using both sampled and re-sampled music from the studio – analog and looped.

The new album features synths, warm bass tones and rolling drum programming, as well as melancholy vocals. The group says it continues working together because of a shared past in the German city attending illegal parties following reunification.

In an interview with Electronic Beats, Moderat said that all the members worked on getting the album together. “Everybody did everything, it wasn’t like one person was the drum programmer and the other one was making the melodies. It’s really mixed,” said Sascha Ring. “We wanted to resample stuff and use it over and over again. We wanted to wear the sound out on purpose,” Ring added.
