Rod Modell and Steve Hitchell aka cv313 are total release-nicks, this 12” featuring live cuts captured in Tokyo and Russia, just a few months on from their Live @ Primary set. The A-side is a alternate take on an earlier dub-techno workout from ‘07, whilst on the flip things get murkier and spacier. Echospace are to thank once again for bringing this one to the world.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 05 June 2015
This record chronicles the dual smoky techno interplay of Deepchord & Intrusion in some underground bunker in Tokyo and Moscow. The two men share the Echospace, summoning beats that you’ll get lost in, all captured live. I was under the impression that all dub techno was created in one take with a mountain of drum machines and space echos, prove me wrong.
As you’d expect, it’s deep and spacey as hell, with scratchy hats shuffling about amongst bubbling synths and a breathing vortex of dub delay tracing a steady journey between the left and right speakers. The A side is on the more upbeat side of dub techno, still maintaining a level of funkiness that allows bodily movement rather than sofa burnout. You know the drill, it’s cv313. On the flip, it’s a bit more ghostly and atonal, without so much as a chordal stab to latch onto - just some throbby bass womp and delays that have morphed into icy wisps. Is it a coincidence that this is the Moscovian cut?
This release definitely captures the more free-form nature of live techno, despite being more or less what you’d expect from a cv313 studio record. Because it’s all live really. More than that though, it displays 2 differing sides of the duo, groovy and deep versus cold and lost. A feast for spaced-out ears.
