A Detroit-Chicago collaboration between prolific and low-key ambient dub-techno producer Rod Modell (Deepchord) and Steven Hitchell (Soultek), Echospace introduced themselves with a series of 12" singles on England's Modern Love label, all of which were compiled on a CD named after the series, The Coldest Season (2007). The same year, the duo also issued a pair of singles on Lee Purkis' Fortune8 label, as well as an additional release on echospace[detroit]. A second album, the relatively harsh Liumin, followed in 2010. As with much of Modell's output, Echospace were deeply rooted in the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction school of dub-techno, emphasizing deep throbs and alternately soothing and unsettling ambience (manipulated field recordings, for the most part). ~ Andy Kellman
