British Producer, DJ and label operator Ed Davenport has resolutely carved out a sound of his own within the underground Techno and House scene. Releasing music for over 10 years, he runs his own label, Counterchange, and also records as Inland.
The launch of the Counterchange label in 2013, and his co-management of the recently relaunched Infrastructure New York label alongside Function, both represent the constant development of Davenport as an artist concerned with doing things his own way. Driven by a sense of the timelessness of great music, Ed continues to hone a sound that is at once emotional, engaging, and expansive.
Having cut his teeth on the London scene and released a handful of well-received 12s, it was his move to Berlin in 2008 that afforded Ed the creative space to fully develop his potential. Davenport quickly landed himself regular gigs in the German capital, playing the first of many sets at Panorama Bar in September that same year. After a period of deep research and development, often being called in to play 8 hour closing sets at the famed venue, Davenport began a closer relationship with the Techno stylings of Berghain. Since the start of 2013 Ed appeared at least 6 times a year at the club, holding up a regular slot that has seen his fan-base grow hugely, both in Berlin and internationally.
In May 2014 Ed unveiled a new chapter in his artistic development, as he teamed up with Function as 'Function/Inland' for the first release on the newly re-launched Infrastructure label. Their 'Odeon/Rhyl' EP met critical acclaim and Ed now co-runs the label with the respected American techno-mainstay.
