Deepchord – Auratones [SOMALP117]

A foray into deep, organic, cinematic dance music. Subterranean bass, intercepted alien transmissions, and stripped down dance-beats meld with sheets of sounds that roll over the listener like waves lapping up on the shore. Shimmering, watery, brain hemisphere synchronization tones caress and melt stress away. Dance floor friendly tracks that work equally well in one s private listening space. Immersive music with a distinctive aquatic quality. Inspired by Detroit & Berlin s dance genres, but tempered by more ambience / atmosphere than one would expect from those genres. Music without harshness or rough edges. Fuzzy, out-of-focus, soft-sounds that slip in and out of the listener’s consciousness. Uniquely melds current dance rhythms with lushness and spirituality. Synesthetic sounds that trigger sensory experiences in cognitive pathways other than hearing smells of perfumes, thoughts of colours, and altered perception of time and space. Psychoacoustic, cerebral, electronic listening music for those wanting a different experience than the current harsher, darker dance trends are offering. Responsibly made gentle music designed from the ground-up to have a positive effect on the nervous system and leave the listener invigorated and recharged. Chi-building sonic balm. Timeless, exotic dance tracks for a new school of electronic music enthusiasts who are searching for beautiful sounds, crafted with a higher purpose in mind.

Deepchord – Campfire EP [SOMA497]

Deepchord is back on Soma and drops the first single from forthcoming album, Auratones due in October. As is expected from the Detroit based sound designer, the Campfire EP is everything we have come to know and admire about his productions, from the spaced out, ambient sound fields to classic Dub Techno.

Deepchord – Ultraviolet Music [SOMACD111]

Given his prolific nature, fresh material from Rod Modell under the Deepchord guise is not news. There is, though, something rather special and extra-ordinary about Ultraviolet Music, an expansive, double-disc full length for Soma, which the Detroit-based producer has described as “hallucinogenic”. Taking dub techno as his blueprint, Modell delivers an impressive collection of hypnotic, out-there moments that also take influence from ambient, Detroit techno, deep house, and the kind of fuzzy, beguiling sonic textures guaranteed to flip your lid. While many of Modell’s albums feature epic, 20-minute plus workouts, here he quickly shuffles between shorter moments whilst retaining a deliciously dubby dancefloor pulse.

Deepchord – Luxury Part 2 [SOMA417]

Rob Modell expertly crafting two starry, melodic and admirably hypnotic compositions for Soma Records. Choose between the twinkling melodies, rolling chords and starlight grooves of “Luxury 3” and the bolder, more sci-fi tinged “Luxury 4”, whose undulating percussion, fluid chords and dub-style live mixing guarantee eyes-wide-shut thrills.

Fluxion – Broadwalk Tales Remix EP [ECHOCORD062]

To date Fluxion, AKA Greek dub techno artist Konstantinos Soublis, has released three albums on Danish imprint Echocord, settling in nicely alongside the likes of Luke Hess, Deadbeat, STL, Conforce and XDB. Kenneth Christiansen’s label revisits the most recent Soublis long player, Broadwalk Tales which arrived back in April, for a remix 12″ packing some high calibre names in Deepchord and Joey Anderson. In the hands of the highly regarded Anderson, “You Don’t Know” is transformed from its vaporous origins into a slab of typically deep and jacking Jersey house, while Rod Modell naturally opts for fading resonance and cloudy white noise in his two DeepChord variations of “For You”.

Deepchord – Lanterns [AI001]

Astral Industries is a creative platform that challenges artists to experiment, collaborate and work outside of their comfort zones. For their first release, Rod Modell (a.k.a. Deepchord) presents ”Lanterns” – an epic journey through an evolving sonic landscape propelled by the churning momentum of reverb-soaked percussion.

Deepchord – Luxury [SOMA394]

The ever-reliant Deepchord kicks off 2014 in his usual stylish way with two deep cuts in the Luxury EP. After last years jaunt into the ambient with 20 Electrostatic Soundfields, Rod Model return to the world of slick beats and even dreamier synths and atmospheres. Luxury 1 ebbs in majestically as beautifully crafted layers of synths glide across field recorded drops of water that instantly play with your senses. Pumping sub bass fills the rest of the spectrum as Rod does what he does best by creating an unending slick groove, pieced together by crisp percussion. Yet more atmospherics come into play in Luxury 2 as otherworldly field recordings are brought to life through the use of Rod’s unique processing and layers of dream state synths. A perfectly worked groove seems to come out of nowhere and glides gently under the atmosphere; again subtle percussion ties everything together seamlessly.

The inspirational Rod Modell aka Deepchord follows up Sommer, his second album on Soma, with two exclusive tracks perfectly laid down in only the way he can, giving us ‘Tonality of Night’.

DeepChord Presents Echospace ‎– Silent World (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) [ECHOSPACELP313-LP-2]

First new album from the Echospace duo since the critically acclaimed ‘Liumin’ double album on Manchester’s beloved Modern Love imprint. The sonic structure of this album was the basis for what later became ”Liumin” released on Modern Love but this exploration is something all together different, left untreated and unprocessed from its original 1/2” tape to preserve the natural organic state of the recording. The LP is a soundtrack to Silent World, an independent film produced by Rod Modell that will come out on DVD sometime after the album.
