The deep, immersive echo chamber that sits at the center of DeepChord’s signature Echospace series may appear inspired by the genre-defining work of first-wave dub-technoists that appeared on the Chain Reaction label in the mid- to late-90s. But it’s also work that’s quintessentially building upon the Detroit scene where it was born, and that divine marriage of roots and vision make the work of Rod Modell and Steve Hitchell at once so highly considered, so timeless, and so pertinent. The distinguishing feature of the duo’s sound is its ability and willingness to stand still; whereas much of dub techno attempts to propel the listener forward in either a lover’s rock groove or the cushioned reverb of a driving beat, DeepChord’s synth-driven analog warmth trades not only in static ambience but also static design.
