der in berlin lebende britische dj, produzent und labelbetreiber (infrastructure new york, counterchange), ed davenport, veröffentlicht mit der festnetz ep auf siamese ein wundervolles minialbum mit 4 clubtracks und 2 interludes. dabei demonstriert er eine beachtliche vielfalt, die sich von modernem acid house, trippig, elektronisch und ohne 303 (festnetz) über bezaubernde late-night-deepness (severance) und die in der panorama bar und im block tel aviv getestete geheimwaffe rain bis zum perfekten sunset-track inner sense erstreckt.
maeve is the record label run by three close friends, mano le tough, the drifter and baikal. for maeve’s eighth outing it has enlisted the talents of long time friend ed davenport. the record grew from a chance hearing of some new material at eds studio one night and after a brief discussion it was decided that the tracks would find a fitting home at maeve. although recently more known for his harder techno releases under the moniker inland, silver walks is some what a return to eds roots. slower, emotive, more contemplative tracks, recorded over a pretty short period of focused studio time. silver walks is a synth-led jam. the arpeggiator holds pride of place as the centre of the tune with filter tweaks complementing its progression. kuromaku has a tougher attitude - heady and cosmic with a deep kick. it means black curtain in japanese.

second solo ep on falkplatz from ed davenport after his groundbreaking verdantin ep from 2010. inland on the a-side is a 10 minute manifest and shows eds talent in creating rough, banging technotracks with a melancholic touch in it. this touch you also can find in >5 rivers< on the b-side. warm chords and shuffling hihats all the way through. pure sweetness. also for this release we found a remixer who delivers the special touch to this ep. force/emerge mutates the original iinto a deep grooving track with roots in bristol dubstep and uk funky and adds even some kind of pop appeal to it. welcome to inland
ed davenport is the next artist to have his say on len fakis figure spc imprint, taking his distinctive slant on late night body music into a new personal dimension. stretching out over 10 minutes, >take heart< throbs like a first love, dizzy on pheromones and the promise of kneetrembling basement action. fellow uk-import-to-berlin mama provides the telling vocal message. on the flip, eds >weird organ< is a straight up floor-troubling weapon - dark, taut and bristling with malevolent energy. perhaps his heaviest moment to date!?
following on from his studio 395 ep that heralded the support of zip, oliver deutschmann, baby ford, rolando & ben sims to name a few, ed returns with another satisfying 2 tracker. centrality is a strong, peak time techno track that features raw 909 percussion paired with an infectious synth riff & haunting house vocals finishing on a transmat style synth solo, the kind of track that stays in your head for hours if not days after you ve left the nightclub. b side spirits incorporates the same distinguished groove of centrality but opens the possibilities up tenfold inviting plays on both house & techno dance floors equally suited to night & day
uk born, berlin based producer, ed davenport, is the latest artist to debut on nrk music, with an awesome two track release. >curtain call< and >overdub in am< showcase davenports smooth, deep tech-house sounds, heavy on the dub side!
davenport has already enjoyed positive attention on his releases for esteemed labels such as poker flat, liebe*detail, vidab and district of corruption. recent remixes for len faki on cocoon, and guy j on jon digweeds bedrock label, are also helping to bring his name to the forefront of the scene.
his debut nrk release features a remix by nrks nick harris. >curtain call< is a heavyweight, tribal workout, with plenty of rolling percussion amongst its nagging vocal clips and big, twisted pads. >overdub...< is a dub-heavy houser, an extremely well produced, warm and hypnotizing, deep dancefloor track.
ed’s first offering for autoreply references the early building blocks laid down by pioneers such as carl craig or robert hood twisting & turning them with his own crisp production & drum programming with the end result being a unique contemporary take on modern dancefloor techno. both tracks effortlessly build teasing as they progress sometimes climaxing but always leaving you thirsty for more. the ballroom is a deep complex work that starts its journey showing the characteristics of a light stepping waltz - as the track progresses something more sinister starts to emerge & the mood subtlety transfers to a dark prominent space tango. this track will not only make you dance, it will also make you feel nervous & excited! the well tempered clavier – this track has it all: dancefloor bomb - dj tool – 9 ½ minutes of absolute linear pleasure making a statement from the word go with its solid kick and catchy lead synth floating in and out of the mix building to an unmissable break which is guaranteed to get cheers from the dancefloor + beyond. serious techno for serious djs. linienwerk – this is the perfect track to help build a room or wake up an afterparty, beautifully paced with an organic feel not to mention the dark synth stabs that seem to cover the entire stereo field.
