In true Ed:it fashion, Ed Warrener masterfully closes out the Silhouettes Series with four rolling cuts designed to make you move. Striking a considered balance between the grit of Part One with the deeper shades of Part Two, this final instalment marks a captivating culmination to Ed:it’s year.
Cutting reese hits and crisp drum breaks interject a gripping vocal hook in opener ‘Empty Eyes’, setting the tone for the rest of the EP. Ed:it proceeds to provide ‘The Ticket’, a collaboration with fellow Shogun affiliates Pola & Bryson – rising pad and repeating vocal motifs build to a thumping bassline built for the dancefloor. ‘Endings’ follows, featuring a critical yet measured bassline over weighty drum hits. ‘Can’t Stop Thinking’ ends the Silhouettes chapter, a reflective piano line leading the charge into a brooding vocal hook over oozes of warm bass.
Hailing from Nottingham Ed Warrener aka Ed:it made his first forays into the scene back in 2010. Since then he has honed his sound to become one of the finest purveyors of meaningful, soulful but gritty drum & bass, garnering fans from across the spectrum and heavy support from some of D&B’s biggest names & labels.
Since first releasing on labels such as Critical Music, Demand Records & Flexout Audio back in 2010 his inevitable progression lead to collaborations & remixes with Pennygiles, Hyroglifics, Overlook & Eastcolors. A strong line of releases followed on labels Blu Mar Ten Music, Commercial Suicide & Rooted Recordings – seeing legends Total Science crafting a heavy remix from ‘Cargo Dub’. As demand for Ed:it’s own intricate blend of studio sonics increased so has his release schedule with both Hospital Records, Med School and C.I.A. releasing music from him in recent years.
Shooting to the attention of Friction and K-Tee it wasn’t long before the first Ed:it tunes appeared on Shogun’s sister imprint SGN:LTD in 2014, namely ‘Sound Killer’ b/w ‘I Would’. Having worked closely with the Shogun bosses since then Ed finally got the call he’d been waiting for and now Ed:it is a fully signed member of the acclaimed Shogun Audio roster.
A great DJ in his own right with appearances on Radio 1, 1Xtra, Mistajam, D&B Arena and events at Brixton Academy, Cable, Detonate Festival & Hospitality, you can be sure you’ll be hearing a lot more of Ed:it in the years to come at events across the world, all with the Shogun Audio seal of approval.
