Echospace, the Detroit-Chicago-Berlin pedigree project, and the sum of the efforts and talents of Rod Modell ( DeepChord) and Steve Hitchell ( Soultek), has delivered its second long player. Yesterday was the official release date of “ Liumin” (Modern Love, 2010), which is a darker follow up to the mysterious, roaring and narcotic debut “ The Coldest Season” (Modern Love/Decoder, 2007). It confirmed the duo as up there with the best contemporary purveyors of ambient dub and dubbed-out techno of the Basic Channel school. Convinced of the attraction of the record, the bosses at British label Modern Love have uploaded “Liumin” to their Soundcloud page for everyone to hear. Listen to it after the break and remember that if you pre-order “Liumin”, you’ll get a free second CD which compiles 80 minutes of field recordings by Modell in Tokyo.
