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.

Pure Detroit dub techno magic in full mesmerising effect on this coloured wax 12” that precedes DeepChord’s ‘Ultraviolet’ 2CD on Soma.
DeepChord have been consistently reliable over the years, you always pretty much know what you’re gonna get but sometimes safety can be a good thing. Rod Modell and the whole Echospace axis are like the sonic equivalent of comfort food. You wouldn’t wanna crack open a tin of beans and have a bunch of asparagus jump out at you would you?
First up is the twelve and a half minute epic ‘Fargo’ that’s as warm and comforting as slipping into a cocoon, temporarily isolated in solace, hypnotized by the loops pulsating from the world outside until you burst it open, cleansed; like a beautiful butterfly riding the skies and ascending the stratosphere until reaching deep space. A deep throbbing 4/4 kick at it’s core; all glistening, shimmering metallic and glassy electronics dissolving into infinite trails. I can imagine this in a club making dancers erupt into a mass of goose pimples with bodies transforming into plucked chickens. Weep.
Likewise ‘CMOS Therapy’ is geared towards the dancefloor, creating an effortless, endless groove with functional percussion and multi layers of spectral effects. You’ve kinda heard it all before and yet still it manages to hit the sweet spot.
‘Night Song’ could be the last tune of the party - A dense, melancholy track bursting with celestial layers that transport the listener into a familiar but welcoming dreamworld. Bring on that album...
