Ed Tangent [Sunrise / PsyCore Records - UK]

From an early age Ed found himself drawn to mixing sounds (on an old four track), and the emerging Electronic music medium being developed in the 1970’s, citing the Band ‘SKY’ as an early influence. By the early 80’s he started DJing, influenced by the early electro/hip-hop scratch DJs’ and started looping breaks and beats from old rare groove tracks whist mixing into the new Electro sound. By the end of the 80s’ he moved up to Manchester UK where he immersed himself into the Rave culture and free party scene.

After several years of playing and promoting techno and acid sounds at events around the UK’s North West Ed discovered the Goa Trance sound. He teamed up in 1995 with Matt Allaby (Nano) and Christos to start his own night Global Sunrise, which still runs to this day as Sunrise. Ed got recognition for his skills as a DJ and played across the UK at many events including guest spots for the original Psy super club ‘Return To the Source’ at venues such as Brixton Academy, the Rocket, Tyson Street and Mega Dog Festival Events. Ed also found success further a field in Europe and was a guest Dj at the ‘Hill Top’ Goa, for their Millennium NYE party.

Ed has established a strong following UK and beyond, playing regular gigs each month and has a busy Festival schedule each year playing events such as The Glade, Sunrise Celebration, Waveform, The Bulldog Bash, Solfest, Bearded Theory and Shamania. He also runs his night Sunrise at festivals and demand for his musical influence at events is growing fast so that Ed not only plays on many Stages, but manages them as well.

Recognition for his skill and professionalism, Phantasm Records made him a label DJ and Ed now represents them alongside fellow artists Eskimo, John Phantasm, Cosmosis and Dickster. Ed has also signed up as a guest resident for international promoter Antiworld.

Early 2008 Ed started working as label manager for Psy-Core records promoting the Full on sound with signed acts that include BPM, Bigabo, Hologram, and Sigma. He now has established a world wide fan base that look for the quality and consistency that a DJ of Ed’s calibre and experience has offers electronic music lovers everywhere.
