ED RUSH & OPTICAL [London , UK] Virus recordings

This pair from London needs no introduction, but for those who have been living under a rock, Ed Rush & Optical are some of the hottest names of all time in drum and bass music. The originators to bring back the dark sounds of drum and bass and push them to new levels, Ed Rush & Optical still continue to make a massive impact with each release until this very day. Most known for their seminal label 'Virus' recordings and their Debut LP 'Wormhole' which changed drum and bass music as we know it today, their first release was "Medicine/Punchbag," two tracks marked with technically precise drum programming along with a distorted, low, and crunchy bass line. Then they followed with the eventual EP, Wormhole in 1998, which was released to critical and underground success, as the sounds from that album again redefined the direction drum and bass was headed, and solidified their status as the forerunners of the new sound of drum and bass. They have continued on this innovation in recent years by collaborating with the likes of Noisia , Matrix, Audio + more. It seems as over the span of the last 15 years, Ed rush and Optical have been some of the most consistent names there is in underground dance music, having written countless anthems played by every top Dj across the globe , as well as maintaining to be one of the most sought after Dj acts at festivals and clubs alike. Do not miss their first ever Nashville appearance as we kick off 2011 with the largest drum and bass act in Nashville to date!
