That must be the promo bit they currently have on their shop, either or, the music is ace!

Absolutely enamored with this production, pure class and sophistication few could rival. A must in every sense of the word!

Best investment I've made in a year of complete uncertainty, not a moment wasted and many hours spent of treasured listening. This is an absolute gem of a release, a future classic. If you're as over the moon on Basic Channel as I am, this is an absolute ... See full review

Fell in love with this record all over again as I've had it in storage for since I purchased it, took another spin around the deck today. There's a certain melancholy, or sadness accompanied by optimism. A truly mystical creation I still find myself ... See full review

Well said mate, have lived and breathed with it since I received a copy, music from another planet!
posted a review of cv313 - Seconds To Forever. 3 months ago
Nearly 10 years ago I heard this record which unbeknownst to me would forever change my life, in a very similar fashion as to when I first heard Basic Channel. The 23-minute closing track, "beyond the clouds" (reprise) is simply out of this world, ... See full review

Haven't had much luck with that mate, a mortal sin if you order to late in the game.

The mastering by Stephen Hitchell of Echospace is superb! Convextion (ERP) gave a truly unique touch on a classic all its own, magical!

Haven't been this engaged with a single vortexual release since this one, it is entirely out of this world!

I could go on and on about how exceptional this album is but I refuse, just listen and come to your own conclusions. My only wish is this were to be released on my bespoke favourite format, my beloved wax. Am I dreaming or is this going to happen?
posted a comment on Echo Inspectors - Nyctophilia. about 1 year ago
I managed to procure a copy of this absolute beauty of a release and thank the wee heavens for it. I dare say, this may be the most punchy and dreamiest cv313 production I have ever encountered in the form of a remix. (The bass-line is mental!!) If you ... See full review

I have to side with The Wire on this beautiful set:

"Speaking of concealing brilliance in smoky space, here the principle is taken to far distant limits. Three tracks here are culled from Steve Hitchell’s cassette demos from the early 1990’s, led by ... See full review

Not sure mate but both sides are stunningly beautiful, I'm sure Rod had some input but my guess is it's more Stephen's influence.

Maybe there are more to follow, a second edition? An absolute gem of a release though.

10 years have gone by and this label and sound is still my favourite among the litany of dub-techno labels in the world. There's something truly other-wordily happening in their music. A feeling I haven't felt in forever.
posted a comment on echospace [detroit]. over 2 years ago
My favorite label since Basic Channel, at 63 years old I would say I've seen and heard everything in music but this label and sound still keeps me fascinated. Maybe you should spend more time listening and less time complaining about a sound you ... See full review

Me too mate, probably my favorite of all time next to Basic Channel, Maurizio and Rhythm & Sound.
posted a review of cv313 - The Other Side. over 2 years ago
The latest release from Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell, collectively recording under the moniker cv313, is a single-track nearly hour-long piece, titled [the other side], which must be listened to completely, in its entirety, from start to finish, in a ... See full review

I fail to see why someone would use an artist name already in use, it's dishonest to the consumer. I would never have bought this record otherwise, not saying it's bad just not my cup of tea.

posted a review of Basic Channel - Quadrant Dub. over 4 years ago
Over 20 years have passed and there still hasn't been another release to equal the depth of this and I reckon only a slight few I could ever compare to this coveted production. There's no other recording in this genre I hold to a higher regard than ... See full review

I couldn't believe it when I saw this available to pre-order, the first new Basic Channel record since 1994? I felt like a kid again, I bought the digital version and 3 copies of the vinyl! Worth the weight in gold, another treasure in my collection!
posted a review of DeepChord - Sommer. over 6 years ago
Let me start by saying this album is something seldom felt, a sediment and term I wouldn't use lightly in this particular genre. If you're expecting Modell to deviate to far from his sound you're right, the sound which was once DeepChord has moved far ... See full review

More albums should set aim to have a central purpose as this one does, a soundtrack to a film no one has even seen? A media ploy or last attempt to save a genre that has virtually drowned itself with clone after clone and copy of copy, it's hard to tell ... See full review

I very seldom will write reviews beyond my beloved Basic Channel axis and their terrific catalogue but if any release in the past decade could have been said to exemplify a sound or exceed expectations it would be this one. I'm not sure what role the ... See full review
posted a review of Vainqueur - Elevations. over 10 years ago
This is one of my favorite releases on Chain Reaction and one which has a sound so clearly defined as its own. In the opening minute of anti-static it clearly sets the tone for the beauties to follow. Solanus is the kind of song you can almost float in, ... See full review
posted a review of Quadrant - Infinition. over 10 years ago
Infinition is one of the greatest releases on Planet E and by far one of the best Detroit techno releases from an artist outside of Detroit. I bought this at Fat Cat Records way back when and still hear it echoing through my head as if it were the first ... See full review

Timeless album from a master of his craft, I wish Luomo could produce an album like this again. His new material doesn't compare to the landmark he made here, maybe not as commercially viable but that is what made it so good. It has everything you could ... See full review

Hard to believe such a young label has managed to enter the market with a vengeance and release so many timeless selections. With artist like Juan Atkins, Deep Chord, EchoSpace & Convextion involved you know it must be be something quite special. The ... See full review
posted a review of Maurizio - M7. over 10 years ago
One of those songs you will never forget from the first time you hear it to the last. The bass line is hypnotic and probably the deepest low end tone i have ever heard reproduced onto a piece of vinyl which really adds to the effect. The synthesized ... See full review

Inversion is an immense piece of music, music you could picture being the soundtrack for a movie filmed in the deepest abyss of the ocean. I fall victim to the relentless simple chord progressions buried in the calm of rain just as the storm rolls in. ... See full review

Radiance is the kind of song you can lose yourself in for days (years for some of us) perfect in every sense of the word. If you could put together everything you love about techno, dub & ambient this would be the music you would hear, a truly amazing ... See full review

Amazing extended versions of the legendary Basic Channel catalog, some would say 18 minutes is to long for one song but i feel in "inversion" it goes by almost to fast, i wish i could hear this for the entire length of a CD. The one beautiful aspect of ... See full review
