13 years ago, back in February 2003 in Montmartre (Paris, France), Pedro Winter aka Busy P created Ed Banger Records,
home to Justice, Sebastian, Mr Oizo, Feadz and more.
The rise of the label has been something of a phenomenon, with its artists touring worldwide with DJ and/or live performances at sold out venues, each appearance always long awaited and celebrated like the coming of the messiah by thousands of kids from each and every part of the world.
Drawing on the street energy of hip hop, rock’s explosion and the hypnotic compression of techno music, but remaining open to all other influences, the sound of the label, mostly electronic and saturated, has become a trademark, registered worldwide. The revered roster and SO:ME’s post-cartoon imaging are practically pop culture icons, especially within the world of new media (blogs, forums, social networks) where Ed Banger remains at the top of their game.
