cv313
Glass City Sessions

If you didn’t know yet, cv313 are also known as Echospace. The duo of Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell have been leaders in the dub techno field for many a year now - so long, in fact, that they’re able to make new records out of jams they had nearly two decades ago. Glass City Sessions features reworkings of some tracks they played in abandoned asylum outside of Detroit back in 2000.

Deepchord
Immersions

Rod Modell is back in his long-running Deepchord guise with a long-awaited solo LP on Astral Industries. 'Immersions' comprises two beautiful, expansive long-form pieces, each adorning a side of the record. It's that wonderfully emotional, elegiac sound we're accustomed to: sparkling and elegant techno textures which wind and wend their way through deep caverns of dub. Submerged sounds that happily bubble to the surface. Also, just look at that sleeve art; another classic from the house of Astral Industries.

Analogue Oceans

So you've just arrived back home from an epic night clubbing, limbs aching, heart pounding, with sweat drenched clothes you stagger home on the night bus while tucking into doner meat and chips, the thumping 4/4 beats still ringing in your ears and the disco biscuit in your blood stream is a long way from coming down so what you really need are some soothing beats and warm drones to help you drift into slumber, cv313 is just what the doctor ordered, let the ambient bliss of echospace drench you it's gentle embrace and float off down the flowing dream stream into sleepy land.......zzzzzzzzzz

Beyond Dreams [Analog Passages]

They've released as many records as I've started save files on Pokemon Blue, and still Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell graft. Yet another entry into their cv313 series sees them create longform "analog passages" that are likely immersive, blissful and ethereal, all staple vibes of their dub techno aesthetic. This one should tide you over 'til next week.

Shorelights
Ancient Lights

Rod Modell AKA Deepchord (see also  Echospace, Waveform Transmissions, Transformations) has hooked up with the two blokes from Detroit’s nospectacle, Chris McNamara and Walter Wasacz to become Shorelights to make some ambient techno. Amber Lights is a passionate exploration of space, body and mind. Limited edition double 12” on Subwax bcn.
  • CD (SUBWAXBCNCD03)

cv313
Dimensional Space (LP Edition)

Detroit’s Echospace label finally unleash this thought-lost opus from cv313. Apparently literally adrift underwater in a flood, Dimensional Space was rescued and lovingly reassembled from four years worth of decrepit master tapes. Appropriately, this makes for murky and deeply meditative aesthetics explored over the course of a triple LP. Highly limited and easter egg-laden.

Rod Modell
Dawn, Dusk, and Darkness

Rod Modell, who as DeepChord has been responsible for a colossal amount of quality dub techno over the years, here presents a book of photography for the first time. Dawn, Dusk, and Darkness contains personal photographs of Barcelona, and is accompanied by a CD of Barcelona field recordings and related audio moods by Modell. Book with CD on 13/Silentes.

Rod Modell
Mediterranea

Strange to hear allusions to places outside of Detroit on an echospace [detroit] release, but here we are with an album called Mediterranea, which contains faded traces of field recordings made on a Spanish holiday. The journey must have relaxed Rod Modell, because he has turned in a full CD’s-worth (72 minutes!) of sweetly drifting ambient warmth. Lovely stuff.

DeepChord
Northern Shores EP

You know you love that classic Detroit Deepchord sound. Follow Rod Modell on his latest trip into the far reaches of the cosmos, as expressed through sublimely ambient deep house. Northern Shores is a four track EP of perfectly blended pads, drums, field recordings and reverbs upon reverbs. 12” on Soma.

DeepChord
Auratones

Deepchord really allows himself to expand his sounds here on this double-length LP, surely a perfect format for a producer with such a woozy, immersive ambient approach to dub techno. Auratones’ twelve tracks create a positive space for the listener to dance and / or dream in. Released as a 2LP on the Soma label.
  • CD (SOMACD117)

DeepChord
Campfire EP

The Campfire is the perfect setting for a certain kind of dubby ambient techno, being a space that allows the ravers to settle back and contemplate. Deepchord naturally has exactly what's needed for the circumstance, with three gorgeous deep cuts mixing synth pads and submerged rhythms with field recordings. 12” on Soma.

The Other Side

The echospace [detroit] label keeps on producing high-grade ambient techno in their own inimitable style. The Other Side, the latest material from cv313 (the pairing of Stephen Hitchell and Rod Modell), is a single 60-minute track of space-dub coaxed from the mixing desk by your two ambient guides. Slow cosmic atmospheres. CD release packed in an imported Japanese sleeve.

Waveform Transmission (Rod Modell & Chris Troy)
V 2.0-2.9

The always fabulous Astral Industries label present the first new material in 22 years from Rod Modell (DeepChord, cv313) and the elusive Chris Troy as Waveform Transmissions. Their previous album of drifting, droning ambient came via Italy's Silent label in 1996, and then, nothing... 'V 2.0-2.9' is comprised of four eighteen minute cuts of serene ambient bliss, each luxuriously spread across a full side of vinyl. Housed in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve with artwork by Theo Ellsworth.

Land Of The Low Lying Clouds [Live In Hana, HI]

The echospace [detroit] label keeps on producing high-grade ambient techno in their own inimitable style. The latest material from cv313 (the pairing of Stephen Hitchell and Rod Modell) is a document of an airy live set that drifts and pulses and crackles. Close your eyes and lose yourself to the Land Of The Low Lying Clouds. Eco-friendly CD release.

DeepChord presents Echospace
Live in Detroit [Ghost In The Sound]

Echospace captured live in concert at the Detroit Paranormal Society party at Ghosts In The Sound mid-2013. Rod Modell and Steven Hitchell’s dubbed-out techno was in particularly fine form on this night, pushing the crowd into spacey reveries. With a mixture of reworked classics and new material, this is an excellent release from the core Echospace duo. CD on echospace [detroit].

A601-2
Shibuya Hypnagogia

The echospace [detroit] label have always been keen on exploring deep inner states, but Shibuya Hypnagogia goes further than most of their releases. A601-2 (that’s Rod Modell of DeepChord by the way) explicitly intends that this 61 minute piece will induce a slow descent from wakefulness to deep sleep in the listener. Knowing his track record, it probably will. CD in a retro matte digipak.
