Preview DJ Koze’s and Robag Wruhme’s Remixes of Moderat

First announced back in March, separate remixes of Moderat‘s “Bad Kingdom” from DJ Koze and Robag Wruhme are set to see a 12″ release later this month. Before the pair of reworks officially drops, both efforts are now available to preview.

Leading off the upcoming 12″ is Pampa boss DJ Koze, who takes “Bad Kingdom” (from Moderat’s II LP) into more ethereal territory, adding extra layers of pads and a good deal of glitched vocal processing to the mix. On the flip, Wruhme leads Moderat’s song into a bit deeper and more driving territory, which is balanced with soft touches of airy melodies. Set to drop this Friday, June 16, both “Bad Kingdom” remixes can be previewed below.

Apple reportedly in talks to buy Dr Dre’s Beats Electronics for $3.2bn

Headphone maker set to be snapped up.

Apple is reportedly closing in on a deal to buy Dr Dre’s Beatsempire for $3.2bn (£1.9bn).

The deal would include Beats’ recently launched streaming service and its lucrative headphone business. If completed, it will be the technology giant’s biggest ever acquisition.

The Financial Times was the first to report the talks, citing a source that said the two firms were still negotiating the details.

Beats was founded by Dre and music producer Jimmy Iovine in 2008 and has become one of the most popular headphone brands on the market. Last September the company was valued at more than $1bn, so the $3.2bn price tag is a huge increase.

Industry experts are confused by the news, however, as there is a large overlap of customers between the two companies.

“This is really puzzling,” said one analyst cited by BBC News. “You buy companies today to get technologies that no one else or customers that no one has […] They must have something hidden under the hood.”
