Deepchord's immense "grandbend" was originally released on DC-10 and has been often cited as the most beautifully spacious of all of Rod Modell's recordings. This doublepack on the echospace label brings together a remastered version of the original plus reworkings from Echospace, cv313 and Deepchord themselves, plus some killer dubs that make for a bumper package. Predictably enough the most satisfying remix is Deepchord's own reinterpretation, making use of squashed African percussion in much the same vein as Maurizio has on his recent remix work but imbuing it with a fuzzy resonance that just kills us every time. These 6 versions make for another intoxicating installment in the perfectly formed Echospace catalogue.

OFF COURSE WITHE BVDUB INCLUDED JUST GIVES IT THAT EXTRA BEAUTY......A MASTERPIECE MR GUENTNER 8BALL9-SOUNDSCAPE PRODUCER
I'm in love with this song! I usually won't listen to something digitally before the vinyl arrives in the mail--I make a real event of its arrival--but I can't stay away from this one. The album has a nice variety of sounds and satisfies my tastes in a way Autechre haven't done for years, while never sounding like a rip-off of Ae's early work. This is terrific. Scott
