Yesterday morning I checked this release and noticed that 133 people have it, despite only 100 copies being in circulation. Hmm, I thought. Looks like another release where Rod Modell and crew accidentally ran off 1000 copies of the album instead of 100 as they promised. So I sent a complaint to him via email and received a reply today:

"hi tennant

thanks for yor inquiry and support of my music. i did indeed print 1000 copies of subtraktive, i was just in the cd burning centre of smallfish and decided to mix things up a bit, and i pressed some different versions of the track....

Subtraktive (original 100 copies mix)
Subtraktive (DC 150 copies mix I)
Subtraktive ('I've got a good CV' 50 copies mix)
Subtraktive (Intrusion's 'Hitchell just burst into the room' 140 copies mix)
Subtraktive (Phase90 90 copies mix)
Subtraktive (Echospace's Glacial [starting snowing outside] 50 copies mix)
Subtraktive (Echospace's Reformed Christian 50 copies mix)
Subtraktive (Echospace's Unreleased mix)
Subtraktive (DC 150 copies mix II)
Subtraktive (Spacecho's Remastered Reshaped Remix 100 copies mix [edit])
Subtraktive (cv313's Midst of Something Hitchell 100 copies mix)
Subtraktive (cv313's oh sh*t I'm 20 copies short of 1000 mix)

the original pressing is limited edition of 100 copies as listed on my website


Unfortunately all the mixes sound very similar (the nature of techno), but I have been hunting them all down (the DC 150 copies mix II is my favourite, it's got some lovely hissing). I'm still missing the Echospace Glacial mix and will give $500 for it.

Mystery solved, and I am glad to serve the Discogs community as usual.

One of my favorite productions of Rod Modell. There is a certain quality with this song I cannot compare to many others. Imagine you are a fish swimming in a fish tank looking out at the world from an underwater universe, it is bright and full of color. I've read color has an influence with Rod's work, if this is true this song would be blue and white. Blue looking out into the water with the white sparkle of the lights reflecting the tide coming in. I recommend experiencing this with your eyes closed and with the above picture in mind, it is remarkable.

Another strictly limited release by Rod Modell & Co, this time to 100 copies. Restricting the number of copies has always been part of the deepchord ethos, the elusiveness adding to the demand. This release is no exception and a lot of listeners are going to be left in the cold (literally), the trademark warm, rich chords embrace your ears and echo around your brain. This release is on par with some of the best deepchord material; think dc10 given the 'Radio Fore' treatment. Essential...
