Ed Davenport is a somewhat of an enigmatic figure, interviews with him are rare. English born but residing in Berlin he regularly plays clubs such as Berghain / Panorama. He makes techno, big dramatic, emotive techno. He has carved out a style that is uniquely his own and now with his new label counterchange he promises to expand on this and give a platform to artists like Nubian Mindz, Aardvarck, Sagittariun, Raiz and Cassegrain...
The Berlin-based UK expat talks to teshno about some of the important records in his life, past and present.
Ed Davenport lives and works in his adopted home of Berlin, where he has stayed for over four years, building a name for himself within the city and beyond. He produces diverse, powerful, emotional house techno and electronica on labels like NRK, Falkplatz and Liebe*Detail amongst others.
From his first releases in 2006, up to his recent work in 2012, like his celebrated first full-length 'Counterchange' (NRK), or the dramatic, festival-scale 'Inland' record on Falkplatz, Ed has always maintained a high quality, non-conformist approach to club music.
