Inland, also known as Ed Davenport, is a British producer, DJ, and founder of Counterchange Recordings in Berlin. Renowned for his explorative techno and ambient productions, he has released numerous EPs on Counterchange and appeared on labels like Ostgut Ton, Figure, and Infrastructure.

Next up, we have Inland, a British producer and the founder of Counterchange Recordings, bringing a textured and explorative touch to the EP. “Generation” is a dynamically playful track, featuring trance-like hypnotic synth lines and a pounding kick, reminiscent of the golden age of RAVE music in the UK.


Now, let’s meet Messiahwaits, a Korean-born, Berlin-based DJ who lets his records tell unique stories. His latest track, ‘Domapine’22,’ showcases his distinctive style with atmospheric blends and repetitive, jacking rhythms, creating a dark and unsettling aura. Messiahwaits boldly defies genre boundaries with a central message: “Fuck the Genre.”

Let’s dive into the world of BIIA, a disruptor in the electronic music scene, infusing her creations with emotional curiosity. Her track “Basic 5000” on this record seamlessly blends her hard-hitting style with electro dance, resulting in a powerful fusion. With energetic and hard-hitting techno narratives, BIIA incorporates raw beats, trippy elements, and conceptual vocals.

Last but not least, we have Xhulotek, hailing from the underground scene in Valencia, Spain, bringing a versatile style to the EP. His tracks blend various dance electronic genres, reflecting his dedication to the rave culture.

This EP not only highlights the individual talent of each artist but also demonstrates how their tracks intertwine to create an unforgettable journey for all those who LIVE IN THE RAVE.
