Inland “Metatlantic”

Following a superb remix of Hakimonu’s ‘Insular Realms’ in 2015, Ed Davenport’s Inland alias returns to Deep’a & Biri’s Black Crow Recordings with a brand new EP for the label’s tenth release. Having played a key role in the relaunch of Function’s Infrastructure New York imprint, in addition to operating his own widley admired Counterchange label, Davenport’s techno project has brought the Englishman to wider recognition as one of the genre’s most talented producers. The new EP’s three original tracks finds Inland exploring all facets of his diverse sound: A1, ‘Metatlantic’ is driving, acid-laced techno, ‘Cosinaxis’, employs electro beat patterns and IDM aesthetics, B-side opener, ‘Lagoon9′, is a melodic Detroit-indebted big room weapon. Closing out the EP is a remix of from 3KZ aka Italian duo Z.I.P.P.O & Kaelan, the latter of whom provided one of Black Crow’s standout releases so far under his 2030 alias with last year’s Timeworm EP. Their remix of ‘Cosinaxis’ follows hot on the heels of their debut album ‘Parallel Reflections’, released earlier this year on Z.I.P.P.O.’s Fides imprint.
