ClashMusic DJ Mix Podcast – Deepchord

Something very special this week, as renowned dub-techno producer Rod Modell – Deepchord – supplies a uniquely atmospheric DJ mix.

A sound artist with 25 years of electronic music experience under his belt, Modell was heavily influenced by Detroit techno luminaries like Juan Atkins and Derrick May whilst living in the city in the early nineties, going on to create Deepchord with Mike Schommer, who has since parted ways, leaving it as the solo project of Modell.

The duo went on to produce and release a huge body of important work, helping to create a new template for dub-techno with their ambient behemoth of a sound, furthering the distinctive tones developed several years before them by seminal German duo Basic Channel.

Modell’s mix explores characteristically hazy dub and sedated techno, veering in and out of smoky soundscape territory and building up ambient walls of sound, before melting into gritty industrial electronica and livelier minimal techno that recalls the Detroit glory days. Featured artists in Modell’s mix include experimental Swiss producer/composer Thomas Fehlmann, downbeat tech artist Pole, underground British techno duo The Advent, and Detroit stalwart Theo Parrish.

Deepchord’s new album, ‘Hash-Bar Loops’, is released on Soma Records on 4 July.
