Biography

cv313 is one of the many monikers of the Detroit/Chicago-based electronic music producer Stephen Hitchell (aka Soultek, Intrusion, Variant, etc.). cv is an abbreviation for control voltage, while 313 refers to the telephone area code for the city of Detroit, Michigan. cv313 is commonly described as dub techno, although Hitchell himself does not use the term to describe his music, preferring instead to describe it as merely electronic.

Although it’s a collaborative music project, Hitchell self-identifies as the primary creative force behind cv313. Hitchell’s most common collaborator is fellow Detroit producer Rod Modell (aka Deepchord, etc.). The duo also frequently collaborate under the moniker Echospace in a more egalitarian fashion. Hitchell and Modell have remained intentionally vague and playful about the identities of any other potential cv313 collaborators.

In an interview Modell stated, “Actually, we’ve never released any information regarding the members behind cv313. It was always intended to be undisclosed. All accounts to that end are extraneous, but one night while walking around Barcelona (El Raval), Steve and I met two strung-out “characters,” and they gave us an extraordinary demo CD-R, and those guys might somehow be involved.”

    damn, this project real good. I also do not mind if they release something new under its name.

    "The music featured on the album [Dimensional Space 2xCD] and most of what's been released under the cv313 guise was material made in the 1990's. (1993-2000) Actually I was surprised to find out the Echospace label in itself has primarily been a platform for archived material the artist made in the 1990's, excluding a few remix projects."

    Q: "Is there any difference in theory between your Echospace and cv313 monikers?" Rod Modell: "Actually, we’ve never released any information regarding the members behind cv313. It was always intended to be undisclosed. All accounts to that end are extraneous, but one night while walking around Barcelona (El Raval), Steve and I met two strung-out “characters,” and they gave us an extraordinary demo CD-R, and those guys might somehow be involved."
