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.

Sun Electric / Higher Intelligence Agency / Deepchord
DE:10.02

De:tuned has been around for ten years now, putting out new releases by some of the greats of 90s idm and techno, and the Belgians are celebrating with a tasty little anniversary EP called DE:10.02. They've invited dub techno veteran Deepchord, psychedelic ambient astronaut Higher Intelligence Agency, and idm/techno duo Sun Electric to weigh in, creating a diverse trip across the refined edge of electronic music.

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.

Deepchord & Fluxion present Transformations
Bonafide EP

Join dubtech vets Deepchord and Chain Reaction/Echocord staple Fluxion, here bonded into one entity called Transformations, for a pair of trots through the sleepless sighs of The City on Bona Fide. This is the second Transformation transmission, following last year’s Accumulations Pt. 1 & 2. In comparison, Bona Fide is rather slower and warmer, with lighter beats and lounging guitar drifting about through the samplescapes.

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.

Deepchord & Fluxion present Transformations
Accumulate EP

K. Soublis and Rod Modell - that’s Deepchord and Fluxion to you - have been kicking ideas around for a few years now. The first fruits of their time together appear on this initial release in their Transformations series. ‘Accumulate’ is a minimal techno odyssey spread across two sides of vinyl. Cautious arpeggios, swathes of reverb and hazy pockets of found sound float hypnotically across the piece. Here’s hoping the following Transformations are as engaging as this one.

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
Luxury Part 2

As the title implies, Deepchord releases another luxurious dub techno 12” of the sound he now basically defines. This second part foregrounds the often subdued Detroit element, pulling clicking high hats and jazz chords out of the swirling mix. Deepchord captures that crisp winter warmth, plus he has simply the nicest sounding kick drums you’ve ever heard.

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.

cv313
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.

Live at Primary

Slowly dragging you into the present with cv313. Live at Primary is a live recording broken down into ten tracks from Detroitian cv313 (aka Steven Hitchell). Composed of tunes, loops, samples, live instruments and all sorts of gubbins, this is a journey into the depths of techno. As it's live, all the glitches and mishaps add to the raw tension and energy through out the recording. Out on CD from Echospace [detroit].

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
Atmospherica Vol. 2

You can count on DeepChord to live up the project name: each of these 3 beat excursions take it down low, the synths and the drum pulses echoing up to the listener as if from the bottom of a cavern. That’s particularly true of the last track, which sounds extra hazy. Atmospherica Vol. 2 is out on the Soma label.

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.

DeepChord
Atmospherica Vol. 1

Deepchord’s recent album Ultraviolet Music is a work of serious dub techno mastery, and it obviously makes sense for a few of those tracks to be given a dancefloor-friendly life of their own on this 12”. Atmospherica Vol. 1 follows on from plenty of releases for Modern Love and echospace [detroit] over the years. Coloured vinyl LP, out on the Soma label.

DeepChord
Ultraviolet Music

Ultraviolet Music is a set of ‘Atmospheric heroin-house’ according to the press release, a pretty unbeatable description. Certainly, the production on these ambient techno jams is such that it, even listening sober, it already feels like these tracks are percolating out from the inside of your mind. Powerful stuff from DeepChord, released on Soma.

Deepchord & Pulshar
Undercover

Deepchord & Pulshar rock up onto the Avantroots label with Undercover, a length 12” slab of highly atmospheric underwater techno. You’ll find yourself asking how the beats can move forward so clearly when all the sounds surrounding them drift blurrily, weighed down by the water. A good place to be.

DeepChord
Electro Magnetic Dowsing: The Lost D Side

Few genres have a formula as generic as dub techno, and yet it’s a formula that always seems to work. This cut - a long lost D side by Detroit’s own DeepChord, as the title suggests - is no exception, doing what dub techno tends to do but very well indeed. There’s been a very limited pressing and it has already received… “celebrity” endorsement in the shape of Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin and Omar S, among others, so snap it up whilst you still can, basically.
