Inland – Wayfinder [NONPLUS032]

Ed Davenport aka Inland steps up on Boddika’s Nonplus; and delivers the goods as always. “Overpass” is a full frontal peak time weapon that reflects his experience playing in the worlds best techno club and brilliantly executed in all its nine minute glory. The title track is more suited for the pre peak time moments; a hypnotic slow burner but still retaining some intensity. Finally “Dromolaxia” is a sturdy and slowly evolving stomper with some real sinister dub chords lurking in the background.

Cassegrain – Painter-Palette EP [MRECLTD011]

CASSEGRAIN - Painter Palette EP (Front Cover)

M_Rec Ltd is proud to welcome on board Cassegarin, Greek-British producer Tsiridis and Berlin/Vienna based composer and producer Evirgen. Both interested in exploring the territories where dark, raw techno meets UK-influenced sounds. On this new vinyl for M_Rec LTD, they bring two original tracks and a remix by Ed Davenport.
The A side opens with A Painter Of Modern Life, a track laying the perfectly disturbed rhythm of modern life. A sequence of hypnotic techno where the rhythms are never heavy, the sounds antiseptics. Around this base, a brilliant and affective melody emerges. A touch of class that only few can sustain. Completing the A side there’s a remix by Ed Davenport. He throws the original track into a vortex of syncopated rhythms and deep atmospheres: the groove that comes out is amazing.
 On the B side Cassegrain showcase one track. Palette is true techno, with its rhythm straight and direct. There is no stopping, even with soft sounds rising slowly from deep below. Everything transforms into a pleasant trip, exciting and alive.

Ed Davenport – Counterchange [NRKCD046]

Berlin based Brit Ed Davenport presents his debut LP on NRK Music. Counterchange has plenty of concessions to filmic home listening rather than straight up dancefloor fodder. Notably, breakbeats feature heavily up the spine of the album, as does subtle vocal sampling and plenty of atmospheric tension. Starting with the brooding drums and moody voices of “Of Light & Shade” the album unfurls through the barely restrained rave euphoria of the title track, the beautifully re-worked melodies of “New Yorkshire” and “More Red Lights” as well as touching on some sombre downbeat bleakness, bold concrete funk and under-lapping deep techno. The penultimate track, “Somewhere,” is to be the album’s forceful first single: an obvious choice for its deeply hypnotic rhythms and train-track grooves.

Ed Davenport – Verdantin [FALK02]

Cover art - Ed Davenport: Verdantin

Verdantin is an epic 13 minutes long burner. Moody synths, haunting vocals, and a sub-sonic kick drive the slowly evolving structure forward. However… b-side track Siebzehn is at least as good with its lush dubby chords and its echo-ing vocals layer over a classic house groove.
