Brutally good tracks, so glad i found this album. For mixing it would be better to press it on 3 discs and it is actually a little quiet, i go full volume on my xone92 and the tracks reach around 0db. But i think this one is for the books i cant get tired of it, big props!

Music is great, but can’t help thinking that this would have been better as a triple vinyl with 2 tracks per side...

Relaxing, somehow hypnotic and deep. Feels like exploring exotic/ancient Alexandria places during night. My favorite track in this Album is "Wind In Trees"

Very good pressing IMO. Rod did very well on here. Love it! Love the cover, too!

Saw a pic of Auratone speakers today. Knowing that Rod often uses technical terms as monikers, I wonder if these speakers had something to do with the title.

After over 15 years at the dub techno game, Deepchord pretty much has it down pat, and on AURATONES, Rod Modell switches from the cricket-filled atmospherics of “Fog Hotel” into the subtle groove of “Moving Lights,” as though they were part of the same breath. “Wind in Trees” goes deeper with the tones and the beat, but “Lagonda” returns to the lighter touch. This back and forth continues, as “Varanasi” takes some heavy stabs at reverb that echo into “Portofino,” which keeps the rhythm subsumed under thick layers of sound. “Point Reyes” is relatively cleaner, as it races down the tech-house track, right into “Underwater Galaxies.” “Roca 9” returns to ambient space to take a breather, and “Azure” stays nearly beatless, though with plenty of propulsion. “Devil Ray” adds some plucked strings for an additional textural quality to welcome back the kick drum, before “Signals” beams out on a shiny interstellar grooves. These aren’t just Deepchord’s tones, they’re our tones too.

Side B of my copy has horrible pops and clicks, anyone else suffering?

My pressing sounds good but very quiet. Had to turn the volume up almost to the maximum.
