Ed Rush guestmix on 1Xtra

DJ Bailey brings us another class guest mix on Intabeats. This time, from one originators of the techstep sound, Ed Rush!

Anyone who knows drum n bass knows the name Ed Rush. For me, it was the twisted sounds of Ed Rush + Optical's 'Sabotage' that changed my outlook on music forever. That was back in '97. Since then, Ed Rush and partner, Optical, have changed the face of the entire genre. Their label, Virus Recordings, has let loose some of the most visceral and otherworldly funk in dnb history.

Last week on Bailey's Intabeats show on BBC, Ed Rush delivered this little taste of what the relentless Virus camp has in store for us in 2011:
