Since his entry on the scene as a producer in 2006, British born Ed Davenport has forged a name for himself as a distinct and independent voice in modern electronic music.
Characterised by warm, timeless and often emotive themes, he has created his own style through his detailed, spacious productions fusing Deep House, Techno, Dub and a desire to stand out with a less conventional sound.
From the early days of his trade, which saw him release 12's on German labels Gumption or Liebe*Detail, to his handful of appearances as 'Szenario' on UK buzz label Leftroom, Davenport maintained a fairly prolific output while living in london, while gaining support as a DJ. Two acclaimed releases on London based label Autoreply solidified his connection with a deeply underground aesthetic that saw critics draw comparisons with classic Detroit and Chicago productions, alongside a clear UK influence.
A few years later and a move to Berlin, Davenport continued to grow as an in-demand DJ an remixer. Ed is well known for his busy release schedule and a hard-working production ethic that continues to raise his profile on the global electronic scene. His reputation as a DJ has also put him behind the decks in the top clubs of the German capitol, including regular gigs at Berghain/Panorama Bar. Ed's recent RA podcast also places him amongst some of the world's most celebrated contemporary DJs.
Relationships developed with labels like Vidab and the Oliver Deutschmann's Falkplatz imprint, where he released his defining record of 2010, the lush chord-driven 'Siebzehn' featuring Ostgut Ton's Elif Bicer, and also produced the mesmerising 'Trump' alongside Deutschmann. The duo released raw, analog and synth-led tracks on Frankfurt based Polytone, and a new machine-based project named 'The Falkplatz Conspiracy'. A further solo single for Falkplatz will drop before the end of 2011.
In early 2011 the heavyweight 'More Red Lights' EP on classic UK House label NRK elevated Davenport's notoriety and indeed production values. A follow-up single is set for release in October 2011 entitled 'New Yorkshire', backed with remixes from New York's Fred P and NRK label boss Nick Harris. This will be the first single to be lifted from his forthcoming debut album, 'Counterchange', due for release on NRK in early 2012.
