    please put this on vinyl. at least the first disc.
    Listening to this while riding the Tokyo subway system is something else. If you're ever in Tokyo, set aside like two hours, jump on a train, and chuck this on. Surreal experience.

        I've just paid 40€ for this. Don't think i've ever spent over 15€ for a CD but it'll be the best 40€ i've ever paid for electronic/techno music. As others have stated, this is simply an amazing piece of pure Dub Techno bliss that hasn't been surpassed since it was released.

            Can merely hope for a Vinyl reissue. A 10th Anniversary release this year would be a dream...

              "Float" is super aestethic. I can't name better dub dechno track then this one.

                On Deepchord’s second and final album for Modern Love, LIUMIN, they haven’t entirely moved away from the dub techno that marked their earlier work, but they definitely have embraced the techno side of things, though not without incorporating plenty of field recordings of the Tokyo subway to fill the cracks between tracks. “In Echospace” opens with spacious ambience before “Summer Haze,” true to its name, offers up a warm miasma of sound through which the beats cut. “Sub-Marine” introduces some almost funky tech-house, whereas “Burnt Sage” lets its bass throb as a few melancholy tones pierce through the fog. “BCN Dub” has the percussion saturating the space, leaving room only for a few ghostly sonic reflections in the background before “Firefly” gives way to smooth tech-house, though still with that grainy Deepchord aesthetic. “Maglev” punches the beat back to 100% before “Float” layers in the chaos with its thick sustained tones above the rhythm. “Warm” closes the album on pure ambience, letting the sounds of Toyko drift in and out. On the second disc, LIUMIN REDUCED, Deepchord indulges their more ambient side, letting the field recordings take center stage with only a delicate sustained chord to hold up “Track 1,” while “Track 2” offers more melody amidst its crackling atmosphere. “Track 4” has more of a buzz in the background, an urgency of stillness, and “Track 5” returns to the rumble of subways and street noise as “Track 6” twinkles slowly. A hint of warmth creeps into “Track 8” but disappears into the moodier drift of “Track 9.” “Track 11” gives a sense of drifting in the world, a state of presence in a place without an actual presence, while “Track 12” sweeps back and forth between these spaces. Through and through, a modern classic.

                  The content of this record is still probably the most advanced version of dub techno ever produced.
                  The best thing produced by Modell & Hitchell, IMO.

                      Night time, Tokyo Station, the last shinkansen has just pulled in. The doors slide open and just as you are about to board in the swirling throng, you feel a prick in your arm... You just about make it to your seat before the powerful dissociative hallucinogen kicks in. This album is what the next two hours feel like. Exceptional.
