Sommer by Deepchord
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Soma
After more than a dozen years making dub techno, it's entirely reasonable to ask what else Rod Modell possibly could do with his Deepchord project; he's achieved as much as anyone with his take on the Basic Channel-inspired subgenre, but there are so many ways you can spin glancing chords and analog delay. But Sommer manages to sound fresh; the darkness of The Coldest Season has given way to a warm afternoon glow, in which his buoyant beats dangle like dust motes. Whether tribute or coincidence, it's the airiest dub techno has sounded since Pub's classic 2000 single, "Summer."
