Review: Rod Modell is synonymous with introspective techno transmissions and on Soundfields, he slips seductively into abstract composition. Most of the tracks here are only a few minutes long, but it is to Modell's credit that he makes each dreamy sequence segue seamlessly into the next one. Framed against a glitchy, static backdrop, Modell teases out jazzy signatures on "Lavender"; the sound of a forest full of animals waking at dawn on "Whispering Pines" and swirling dub techno on "Aerosphere". Soundfields flows unhurriedly and fluently from start to finish, but it reaches a suitable crescendo on the woozy textures of "Barcelona".

Review: Rod Modell aka Deepchord was never known for his brevity, and Untraviolet, his latest album, proves true to form. Spanning two CDs and clocking in at nearly two and a half hours, it sees the US producer take the listener on a trip through his world of dub. Despite seeming very specific and defined, in reality it's a varied place; on one hand there are the scuffled, almost lo-fi Chain Reaction-influenced grooves of "Gulf Breeze" and "Red Sky", while "Radio Netherlands" is a more bubbly, effective techno track. Modell hasn't forgotten his largely sofa-based audience however, and the wall of hissing sound that comprises "Visible Audio" and the jazzier "Night Transmission" are classic Deepchord.

Review: Taken in part from his recent album on Soma, Atmospherica is sure to appeal to fans of Rod Modell's deep, textured music. "Fargo" sets the tone for the release, with gentle chords washing over a dubbed out groove that sways and sashays like moonlight on a windy night. By contrast, "Cmos Therapy" is faster and darker, as the groove alternates between stepping and rolling but this hyperactivity is joined by a common, heavy underlying feeling. Rounding out the release is "Night Song". While it is also of an atmospheric persuasion, it has a balmy, tropical feeling, which begs the question - after all these years, could this be Rod Modell's own version of deep house?

Review: Even by dub techno standards, Rob Modell seems to be unfeasibly productive. There's been a veritable deluge of Deepchord-related releases this year - all up to the Detroit-based producer's impeccable standards, of course - with the first Luxury release on Soma arguably standing out. This follow-up is predictably strong, with Modell expertly crafting two starry, melodic and admirably hypnotic compositions. 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.

Review: Few producers do the dub techno sound better than Rod Modell and on this second Atmospherica instalment, he shows why he is so revered. "Exploring The North" is dense and subdued, the hisses and crackles ebbing and flowing fluidly over a powerful sub-bass. "Pinewood Lodge" is more atmospheric and floaty, its chords flitting about like fireflies over a camp fire on the first night of autumn. Rounding out the release is "Shot Point". Immersive, hypnotic and ghostly, it washes through the speakers like waves crashing on a deserted beach at midnight. This is electronic music that is designed to get lost in.

Review: One of the best compliments you can pay a minimal techno producer is that they have an ability to make a lot with few elements. While Deepchord's layered, textured sound could be described as maximal techno, on this release for Soma, its simplicity is its strength. In reality, not much happens over the course of the ten-minute plus "Luxury 1", yet its dubby beats, sub-aquatic chords and occasional diversions into dreamy reveries is over before the listener realises it. "Luxury 2" is more dance floor-friendly, but despite this, the break beats are gentle and unassuming and the melodies subtle yet insidious. It makes for a straightforward but seductive combination.

Symbolism In Transition - (6:52) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.89
Review: On Vibrational Studies, Deepchord show that what you leave out is important as what stays in. An understated ambient piece of music, it benefits from not being swathed in layers of doomy Gothic references, as is the habit of so many abstract/ambient producers. Instead, Deepchord sketch out a gentle but nonetheless evocative soundscape that crackles and hisses in all the right places. That said, a more effective use of this approach is audible on "Symbolism In Transition". More of the same hissing, evolving textures are present, but this time, a gentle, dubby rhythm underpins their design - and will probably end up getting more attention.

Review: As ethereal and transient as a cherry tree blossoming in spring, these remixes of Icelandic artist Yagya's 2006 album are up there among Deepchord's most accomplished work to date. Flowing seamlessly over eight untitled pieces, the collection starts with wispy, chord heavy ambience that gives way to tick-tocking pulses by the time it reaches "04" and into gentle, undulating dubby techno grooves on "06" and "07". However, even as Deepchord's remixes hint at the dance floor, they bring it back to the horizontal with the billowing pads and gentle melodies of "08". As remix projects go, Yagya versus Deepchord makes for a dream combination.
