inland: stream-state

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 colorful, 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 house-groove 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. Stream-State is Inland's celebration of the DJ mix/compilation format. Enamored 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 two 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 favorite 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. 4x12" LP set; two printed inserts featuring artwork by Brooklyn based painter Erik Minter; download card including four bonus tracks and continuous DJ mix by Inland.
