Last week I visited 5daysoff in Amsterdam; an electronic music festival which took place in the Melkweg and Paradiso for 5 days. I only went to the shows on Wednesday (with my personal highlights of Moderat and The Field), and Saturday (more a Belgium electroclash night with Dr. Lektroluv, Goose and The Subs).
My favorite act was Moderat hands down! Moderat are Modeselektor and Apparat, with the help of vj team Pfadfinderei. The show was breathtaking; the dreamy, sophisticated, cold soundscapes of Apparat combined with the more obscure, funky beats of Modeselektor and the beautiful visuals of Pfadfinderei (shown on a large screen behind them, which filled the entire stage) made it a night to remember! This shows that Germany is still in a class of its own when it comes to electronic music.
Here's the video of Moderat with Rusty Nails (clip by Pfadfinderei)
