Deep Electronics Podcast # 100 – DeepChord

Welcome the 100th chapter of the Deep Electronics Podcast.

First of all I want to thank all artists that have participated with this serie but also the artists that created the Ambient Sessions and the Showcase serie. Without your love for music, mixing, producing and more, this project wasn’t possible. And a big thank you to all listeners, followers and fans!!!

Starting in February 2013 with the idea to combine photography and deep electronic music together I never thought about it that it would come this far! I even started a netlabel on Bandcamp in the early 2014. The podcast series also involves a lot of contacts all over the globe. Finding producers and DJ’s that want to share there music. Thank you for that!
I hope for the near future that I expand the netlabel and spread more mixes

But for now I present you the 100th chapter mixed by Deepchord. Thank you Rod for making this happen!!


Rod Modell (a.k.a. Deepchord) is a sound-designer with 25 years involvement in electronic music and over 50 releases under various aliases and styles. Beginning with more “industrial” and “ambient” forms of sonic experimentation (working with Kim Cascone and his -then- record-label Silent, and performing with notable industrial acts such as Chris & Cosey and SPK). While attending Art School for Photography, Rod lived in Detroit’s Eastern-Market area, the location of the infamous “techno boulevard”, and home to Derrick May, Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson during that time. Submersed in the blossoming Detroit Techno scene (early 1990’s), a journey from a more experimental sound into Detroit’s techno-world was inevitable. Modell co-founded the Deepchord record label in Detroit during the mid-90’s. Deepchord respected and admired (fellow Detroiters) Underground Resistance for their D.I.Y. attitude and independence. It was because of this respect and admiration that Deepchord declined offers from top techno labels of the time, in favor of doing it by themselves. Many consider Deepchord to be the second wave of the “Basic Channel sound”, and came years before the onslaught of imitators.
