Still working on that hot first release.



    Modula is an electronic duo that fuses live synth and electric bass with drum machines and sampling to create a unique blend of Psychedlic Techno. Both trained jazz musicians, Jason Gardiner and Scott Hunter met at the prestigious Humber College music program. Initially, both Scott and Jason steered their focus solely to jazz, however it wasn’t long before their mutual love for electronic music brought the two together, while each worked on their own respective electronic projects. Once finished school, the obvious next step was to start a new project that Jason and Scott could collaborate on, something that could apply their background in jazz and improvisation to their love of Psytrance and Techno.

    The two began working on a concept, and with each passing jam they found more ways of applying their improvisational skills to techno and Psytrance. Gardiner triggering drum loops and samples while improvising melodies played on synth patches designed on the fly. Hunter using the electric bass to provide pulsating bass lines, counter melodies and rhythms played higher up on the instrument through a variety of stomp box effects. Using these tools, the duo was able to spontaneously create hard-hitting techno beats with vast psychedelic sonic landscapes.

    Upon playing their first show at Burdock to a hyped Psytrance crowd, buzz quickly began to spread around the psytrance and techno scene about Modula’s fresh take on live electronic music. The following weekend the band charmed festival goers at Wild summer festival with their unique set up and live performance style. Since then Modula has been lighting up the Toronto Psy scene with its original spin on Psychedelic Techno.
