Roderick Julian Modell is an American electronic music producer, DJ and musician from Port Huron, Michigan, known professionally as Deepchord (pronunciation: [diːpkɔːrd]; sometimes stylized as DeepChord).

Modell was born on July 22, 1969, in Detroit, Michigan.[1] He worked with Mike Schommer to produce music under the Deepchord moniker as well as co-founded an eponymous record label in Detroit during the mid-1990s. However, currently the project name of Deepchord represents only Modell, who is using a number of aliases besides. The musical style of Deepchord is similar to both the minimal Berlin sound of artists like Basic Channel and the techno tradition of Detroit.[2]

Modell might be best known for his collaboration with Stephen Hitchell (Soultek) as Echospace or cv313. In 2007, they released the album The Coldest Season on the record label Modern Love.[3] Modell has also performed live with Hitchell as Echospace.[4]

Modell has also collaborated with fellow Detroit native Mike Huckaby.[5]
