I've been a huge fan of dance label Ed Banger Records and many of the artists hosted by the label since I found out about it 6 years ago. Led by Busy P, head honcho Pedro Winter - who managed Daft Punk for 12 years - the label hosts some of the most talented and innovative artists ever to spin a record or drop a beat.
As Pedro explains "After managing Daft Punk between 1996 and 2008 I wanted to create my own history. By creating Ed Banger records I launched my own musical adventure in a way. I learnt so much with Daft Punk, I owe them a lot. Celebrating this 10th anniversary is very emotional, I'm proud I managed to write a pretty nice musical chapter in my life. Daft Punk as chapter #1 and Ed Banger records as chapter #2 is pretty cool."
A decade in, Ed Banger shows no sign of slowing down. "I am a happy boy. It's been 10 years of fun, travel, hard work and discovery. I feel lucky too, I met some strong artists, they are Ed Banger records. My main goal is to keep challenging ourselves. We are an alternative label, we are free to go where we want."
