- Magnetic techno attractors. Steel crisis alarm signal funk. Europa-futura rave gyrations -

Counterchange founder Ed Davenport returns with his Inland alias after a short hiatus to re-ignite Function's Infrastructure imprint which he co-manages. An Inland EP also droped on Boddika's Nonplus+ label last autumn picking up strong support as Ed honed in the project's sound strategy.

COUNTER006 continues the conceptual yet dancefloor-friendly approach with an emphasis on bold, metallic textures, classic sci-fi techno theories and ethereal melodic sequences.

'Footstone' is a straight up modern rave track aimed at the peak hours, its syncopated, mutated synth hook riding atop a tough jack-track.

'Sinker' sets off an emergency self- destruct alarm while dropping a layer of tough detroit-styled funk on top. This leaves 'Leylines' to carve a smoother, melodic path through the current European techno landscape; bleepy, bass heavy and forward thinking.

Following this EP will be a remix package featuring mixes from
Matrixxman, Pär Grindvik, BNJMN and Madrid based Pole Group affiliate Ribé. A full artist EP from BNJMN is also ready to drop, as Counterchange primes itself for a busy first half of 2016.
