Ed Davenport

Ed Davenport is a British DJ, producer and label operator based in Berlin. Ed also records as Inland.

Known for his wide-reaching, euphoric and prog-influenced releases and DJ sets, Ed’s unique grasp of left-field sound-design within a dancefloor setting continues to fascinate house and techno heads around the world. Earning his reputation as a versatile DJ on the London Minimal scene during the early 00s, Davenport’s first wave of 12″s surfaced in 2006. A mutant strain of deep-house set the tone for his first EPs on German labels Gumption and Liebe*Detail, (‘Diminuendo’ and ‘Eyespeak’) becoming underground classics.

After his move to Berlin in 2008 and a mixtape (delivered by early supporter Nick Höppner) landed him his first slot at Panorama Bar, a moodier, ‘techy’ hybrid sound began to emerge, peaking with key releases such as the bass-bin rattling ‘More Red Lights’ on UK label NRK in 2011 and the widescreen ‘Counterchange’ LP the following year.

His hypnotic, groove-focused releases on Mosaic, Falkplatz and Figure SPC saw Davenport’s sound continue to explore all corners of the house and (deep)techno landscape, while a minimal-music indebted EP on the Maeve label (‘Silver Walks’, 2015) highlighted his unique skill for storytelling. A follow-up double-12″ for Siamese (Festnetz, 2017) boldly stated his love for analog synth textures and post-acid trippery.

With his celebrated ‘Inland’ alias, Ed indulges his passions in darker and faster strains of techno, while also exploring experimental music, sound design and film scoring. Simultaneously, Davenport’s Counterchange label has notched up over 40 releases – the ‘Solstice’ EP (2013, COUNTER001) a blueprint for the label’s diverse sound. Primarily a home for Inland material, the label released music from genre-bending contemporaries like Efdemin, Cassegrain & Tin Man, Perm and P. Lopez / Ariel Me LLamo.

In 2023 a new wave of electrifying house music began in earnest with Davenport’s ‘Place of Connect’ EP on Blitz club affiliated label Childhood. Lead cut ‘Suntazia’ boldly reawakened the British raver within with its breakbeats and wiggling acid undertow, while ‘Electricity’ set a new benchmark for Ed’s brand of extended, tripping, headsy bass-bombs. The sea-change also welcomed a return to the hallowed closing slot at Panorama Bar, a setting Ed feels very comfortable in, and continues to inspire and nurture his unabridged, eclectic DJ style packed with secret edits and vinyl records old and new.

In 2024 Davenport looks forward to a new chapter with the launch of Globuli, a label-collective built around the core principles of this new house-techno-acid era. Playfulness, positivity, collaboration and connection are key. The quest continues for stand-out club tracks that gyrate dancefloors and evoke an emotional response.


Inland (real name Ed Davenport) is a British producer, DJ and founder of Counterchange Recordings based in Berlin.

Known for his explorative techno and ambient productions, he’s released numerous EPs on his home label Counterchange, appeared on Ostgut Ton, Figure, Infrastructure, and released his debut LP on Ostgut Ton sub-label A-TON.

A passion for cerebral, hypnotic strains of electronic music led to the release of Davenport’s first wave of 12″s in 2006, before his move to Berlin in 2008 and a shift towards the purist techno aesthetics of the city’s most infamous sound system.

In 2012 the first signs of the Inland project were heard on Len Faki’s Figure SPC imprint (‘Nightfall’) and Falkplatz (‘Ed Davenport pres. Inland’) – kicking off his regular fixture as a much-loved local at Berghain, often with 8-10 hr closing sets, and an increasingly worldwide touring schedule.

Working closely alongside US artist Function between 2014 and 2017, the pair released the comeback record for Function’s Infrastructure label, with their now-legendary ‘Odeon / Rhyl’ EP and went on to compile the heavyweight ‘Facticity’ compilation, also teaming up on the soaring ‘Colwyn Bay’ in 2016.

Since 2013, Davenport’s own Counterchange label has notched up over 40 releases – the idiosyncratic ‘Solstice’ EP (2013, COUNTER001) a blueprint for the label’s textural and diverse sound. Primarily a home for his own productions, the label has also put out music from contemporaries like Efdemin, Cassegrain & Tin Man, Magna Pia and Distant Echoes, and offered a platform for a new-breed of producers like ASEC, Ariel Me Llamo (formerly P. Lopez), Backbone and Müzmin.

Deeply entwined with the Arts and film composition, a collaboration with Swiss artist Julian Charrière, the debut Inland LP ’An Invitation To Disappear’ (A-TON LP 05, 2018) translates Davenport’s soundtrack for Charrière’s gallery-based video installation into eight tracks of rhythmically intricate electronics and spectral ambient-techno. Tracking through a palm oil plantation toward a totemic soundsystem on full blast, the LP and Film were debuted live to a full house at Berghain in September 2018.

In 2020 Inland presented a 4 x 12” box-set compilation and DJ mix entitled ‘Stream State’, featuring music from contemporaries like Efdemin, Peter Van Hoesen, Joel Mull, DJ Skull, Mark Broom and many more. This was closely followed by the full-length LP, ‘Potential Current’ (COUTER016), and 2 acclaimed EPs of up-temp, peak-time tracks in 2022, ‘Namsan’ and the BRETT offshoot label (BRETT001), igniting some of Davenport’s most frenetic work to date.
