Ed Rush is the recording name of Ben Settle, a jungle / techstep / neurofunk DJ who often produces tracks in collaboration with Optical.

Biography[edit]

Hailing from west London, Rush came to prominence with the release of the track Bludclot Artattack in 1993 (a collaboration with producer Nico Sykes).[1] He released tracks such as Guncheck (1995), Killamanjaro and Skylab EP (both 1996), recording chiefly for Sykes' No U-Turn Records imprint. His work of this time is included in the Techsteppin (1996) and Torque (1997) compilation albums. In 1998, he joined forces with Optical to create their own drum and bass record label called Virus Recordings.[2] Their album from the same year Wormhole is considered a genre classic.[1]
