Press Info:
Is this a man-made rendering or is it the work of nature? The new-age enigma. Both are in some ways true.

Fluxing between hard-wired reality and digital construct, this storming new EP by Rome’s Conrad Van Orton kicks off a new arc of releases on Counterchange this season.

Processing synths through an external acoustic chain, micing up guitar amps and sending the whole mix into his vintage analogue desk, the rich tonal warmth and renegade attitude of CVO’s work is hard to ignore.

In collaboration with Berlin’s Disc Archive, a maximum of 50 10-inch records will be shipped out carrying tracks, ‘In Lontananza’ and ‘Bewilderment.’ Each one is unique, hand-cut and numbered. A permanent engraving of a time, a place and a state of mind.

Press Info:
Inland returns to his home label with a new four track EP – ‘2122’.

After an explorative soundtrack / LP with conceptual artist Julian Charrière on A-TON in late 2018, and a high pressure club 12’’ on Figure in March, this next EP from the UK-born producer (Ed Davenport) tightens the gap between those two contrasting disciplines. Tough, galvanic techno cuts pair with detailed bleep trips in a new strain of mature and confident output.

On the A1 and B1 lie optimised, modernist DJ tools; ‘2122’ and ‘Noisefields’ both journey toward a brooding, alien inferno. Meanwhile orbiting alarm signals (’Stowaway’) and the psychedelic funk of ‘Lifeline’ chart a lesser-known course, scanning the outer reaches in search of new sonic textures and future dance rituals.

The vinyl release of ‘2122’ will feature a full-cover sleeve featuring artwork by London-based photographer Tom Kavanagh.

Press Info:
British DJ and producer Inland (Ed Davenport) has compiled and mixed ‘Stream State’, his biggest project to date, bringing together over 20 artists in a DJ-ready compilation of colourful, diverse modern techno on his label Counterchange.

Complete with a 90 minute continuous mix by Inland himself, the project celebrates over 15 years behind the decks and cements Davenport’s reputation not only as a tireless force in the studio, but as a trusted selector and curator of contemporary club music. Spanning deep idm-rooted studies, lush chord-driven euphoria, powerful modernist workouts and tough housegroove jackers, Davenport weaves an addictive mix full of character and his precision mixing style.

From veterans and heroes like DJ Skull, Efdemin, Joel Mull, Boddika, Peter Van Hoesen, and Mark Broom (alongside Discrete Circuit), to a new echelon of up-and-coming talent like Rhyw, Sophia Saze, Jamaica Suk, Johanna Knutsson, Aiken, DJ Sodeyama, Perm and Felix Fleer, there’s an underlying thread of shimmering production values and close attention to detail in every track. Inland also selected debuts from Berlin based artists Fred Mann and Arbitrage, and welcomes back BNJMN, P. Lopez and Distant Echoes to the label, now in its 7th year of operation.

‘Stream State’ is Inland’s celebration of the DJ mix / compilation format. Enamoured with UK dance music culture in the mid 90s, the burning, illicit energy of early rave mixtapes left a huge impression. Mystical bootlegs recorded at mass gatherings in fields or late night Radio One transmissions captured on cassette – their eternal spirit was absorbed and cherished. Now more than 2 decades later, Davenport has channeled that fascination into this weighty collector’s item and a captivating continuous mix.

All 22 tracks included are new and original productions made by some of Inland’s favourite artists and colleagues. A network and a community – complied and presented by an artist who continues to demonstrate his longevity and unique voice in the scene.

In 2020 Inland will play a series of ‘Stream State’ events hosting a selection of the artists involved at celebrated venues around the world. The first announced dates are to be held at IFZ in Leipzig, The Block in Tel Aviv, FOLD in London, ://about blank in Berlin, Nitsa in Barcelona, Vurt in Seoul, Gare in Porto and a pre-release event at Spacehall record store, Berlin.
