Since renowned drum & bass DJs Ed Rush and Optical teamed up, they have unleashed upon the world an album, a label and inspired an entire generation of artists. Pioneers of dark jungle, techstep and neurofunk, they have come together to make you dance!
Dropping their immense debut album, ‘Wormhole’, upon an unsuspecting scene, Ed Rush & Optical literally created an entirely new set of rules for succeeding in drum & bass: Take a set of tracks considered too edgy for the major players of the time, add your own label and a pinch of self-determination and you end up with what is widely regarded as the best drum & bass LP of all time!
They have since moved through three more critically acclaimed albums, ‘The Creeps’, ‘Original Doctor Shade’ and the incredible semi-live project ‘Chameleon’, all with their own individual styles and personalities. 2009 saw them tackle the release of their fifth long player, ‘Travel The Galaxy’ a project which once again proved them as true masters of their trade. The duo are currently working on their latest album, a project which promises an eagerly awaited injection of that classic Virus future funk that will prove hard to resist. We can’t wait to see them at this year’s Knockengorroch, come join us!
