Firmly settled in his adopted hometown of Berlin, 29 year-old Brit Ed Davenport has slowly yet surely carved out a niche of his own. He runs his own label, Counterchange Recordings, co-runs the historic Infrastructure New York imprint with Function, and also releases music under his Inland guise.
The launch of the Counterchange label in 2013, and his co-management of the recently relaunched Infrastructure New York label alongside Function, both represent the constant development of Davenport as an artist concerned with doing things his own way. Driven by a sense of the timelessness of great music, Ed continues to hone a sound that is at once emotional, engaging, and expansive.
Having cut his teeth on the London scene and released a handful of well-received 12s, it was his move to Berlin in 2008 that afforded Ed the creative space to fully develop his potential. Davenport quickly landed himself regular gigs in the German capital, playing the first of many sets at Panorama Bar in September that same year. After a period of deep research and development, often being called in to play 8 hour closing sets at the famed venue, Davenport began a closer relationship with the Techno stylings of Berghain. Since the start of 2013 Ed appeared at least 6 times a year at the club, holding up a regular slot that has seen his fan-base grow hugely, both in Berlin and internationally.
In May 2014 Ed unveiled a new chapter in his artistic development, as he teamed up with Function as ‘Function/Inland’ for the first release on the newly re-launched Infrastructure label. Their ‘Odeon/Rhyl’ EP met critical acclaim and Ed now co-runs the label with the respected American techno-mainstay. The pair play selected shows together presenting their Function/Inland DJ sets and Live show. Proving to be a fruitful partnership both in the studio and behind the decks, Infrastructure is set to release more material from Function/Inland in early 2015. It’s clear Ed Davenport’s mission to represent quality, timeless music is only just beginning.

NEWS: An Ed Davenport remix for Par Grindvik’s Stockholm Ltd will surface this summer, with a tough interpretation of Andre Kronert’s ‘C.O.D.E.2′. Andre Kronert was our headliner in June 2014.


B.A.X: the specialist to kick off hopefully another epic night with a heart warming and climaxing deep house sound we always enjoy.

CHRIS WOLTER this time not only sunrise duty but also sunset duty! Being appetiser and dessert is something new, but why not.

VISUALS: EROL –no light show needed we have visuals that entangle with the soundscapes so well it is hard not to get hypnotised by his live creations.

The Observatory is a nightclub that is focused on underground music and the culture[s] associated with it. Now operating from a new hideaway location with a great view on the skyline and river as well as a sunrise after party experience guaranteed. The venue has a great sound system and is already legendary in the region. This has to do with the selection of international guests that performed here and the late night opening hours.

Pulse is a smaller, more spontaneous variant of Heart Beat’s main events. Generally featuring local / regional DJ’s but not as a rule. THIS IS THE EXCEPTION OUR BIGGEST NAME EVER ON A PULSE.Often Pulse events are in between 2 main events because we just can’t wait that long without doing events with great music. Pulse & Heart Beat literally go hand in hand. That means music wise you can expect the same range as you are used from them on any other event: “underground body music”
