After techno acts Modeselektor and Apparat completed a trilogy of successful, increasingly pop-oriented albums under the collaborative handle Moderat, they released Live, an audio document of their concert experience. The outfit had become an acclaimed live draw, and had mainly taken their show to festivals and large-scale venues rather than small nightclubs, and Live was primarily recorded at a sold-out hometown performance in Berlin. It was most certainly a concert, with full breaks for applause in between most of the songs, as opposed to something closer to a DJ set where all the tracks are seamlessly segued and crossfaded. As such, the concert leans heavily toward vocal-based songs, although there are a few instrumentals, and not all of the songs are dance tracks, either -- there are plenty of haunting melancholy ballads as well. These songs showcase the group's knack for sophisticated sound design (such as the glitchy midsection of "Intruder"), but the audience seems like it's waiting patiently during these numbers. When the hits do come, however, the crowd responds enthusiastically. All it takes is the mere appearance of the elephant-like synth blurt of "Bad Kingdom" (the group's hookiest song) for the crowd to go wild. By the end of the song, Sascha Ring stops singing and the crowd takes over. "Reminder" (the first single from III) also gets the crowd clapping and cheering along by the end. The group then plays "Eating Hooks," a more mysterious, moody cut from III, but it segues into the Siriusmo remix of the same song, which is far more uptempo, club-focused, and exciting. The concert ends by turning "Nr. 22," a dubstep instrumental from Moderat's 2009 debut album, into a lengthy, suspenseful expedition. For a group of musicians once associated with more obscure, esoteric forms of techno, Moderat has surprisingly grown into a project with stadium-size ambitions. In terms of another, more famous electropop Mode (namely Depeche), Live is essentially Moderat's 101.

Moby, 30 Years in Search of the Light

Moby is that rarest of artists, a songwriter who has evolved from punk to techno/house to pop, all while continuing to compose ambient music. To mark the release of Reprise, a collection of covers celebrating 30 years of songwriting, Qobuz revisits the career of an artist who has constantly kept the music world off-balance – sometimes even wrong-footing himself – before finally finding his artistic sweet-spot.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

Soulwax, renewable energy

A decade after their last album, the Dewaele brothers are back with a Soulwax album, produced in their new Deewee studio. Following the awesome soundtrack for the film Belgica, a new era is ushering in for the Belgian brothers who, after making the planet dance with their mixes and remixes as 2ManyDJ’s, are once again pushing the boundaries of creativity.
