Convextion – Miranda (Deep Chord Remix)

DeepChord is two seperate words on this release. No bitching! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Convextion – Miranda (Deep Chord Remix) Taken from the EP, Miranda (Remixes) (Matrix Records [Detroit] 2007) | DC | DUB | Gerard Hanson (Convextion, ERP, ERP) Gerard Hanson was born in 1972. He hails from the unlikely environments of Dallas, Texas USA. Little is known about this producer who seems to have Scandinavian roots. His productions have reflections with Basic Channel/Chain Reaction sound. His main inspirations are Juan Atkins and Derrick May. His music also has influences from Stefan Robbers, Red Planet and Carl Craig. He found a way where everything came together: Deepness, Minimalism and Soul, the Detroit-Berlin connection. In 1994 Gerard Hanson and Dan Kurzius started Hardsync, a Magazine dedicated to electronic music reviews and artist interviews. It has been defunct since 1996 as a result of a computer crash. Hard Sync was an outlet for several Texas-based electronic music enthusiasts to reach out to others around the world that shared similar musical interests. He released his first 12″ in 1995. Ever since his debut 12″ on Matrix in 1995. From 1995-1997, he released 5 EPs, and then only 2 more in the next 6 years until 2005. The reason he produced so infrequently was because when his first releases came out, the tracks were licensed to some big releasers and he did not get paid for them. After that some other labels approached him but just wanted more of the same and didn’t really seem to

DeepChord – Vantage Isle (cv313 Reduction) Taken from the album, Vantage Isle Sessions (echospace [detroit] 2008) | D | C | DANCER | Rod Modell & Mike Schommer (DeepChord)… Compared often to the works of Maurizio (Moritz Von Oswald) or the Basic Channel releases, the humble composers Rod Modell and Mike Schommer offer a unique blend of dubby beats, crisp static, synthetic analog grooves, and of course lots of deep chords! Its worth noting that DeepChord is now only Rod Modell. (Edited) -last.fm. Rod Model… Rod Modell is a sound designer / electronic music producer from the Detroit area. Began producing music in the mid-80’s using analogue synthesizers and drum machines. To date (July 2007), Modell has about 60 releases to his credit. Rod’s work was focused on elecrto-acoustic experimentation in the early years, making musique concrete compositions with a 4-track cassette machine and field recordings, then branching into industrial soundscape work. More recent recordings utilize more structure and beats, but still retain the atmospherics that Modell is known for. Mood is of paramount importance in a Rod Modell recording (often created with field recordings). Sadly, this element seems to be lost in much of the clicks+cuts DSP music of today. One of Modell’s favourite pastimes is making middle-of-the-night recordings with his portable DAT machine and dummy-head microphone. In the mid-90’s, Modell started Deepchord Records (w/ Mike Schommer) in Detroit, as an outlet for
