Biography

A full decade after the release of ‘Homework’, and 8 years after Oizo broke through, Busy P (Pedro Winter) is the head of one of the most exciting record labels in the business. But for 11 years (and counting) Busy P has been handling Ed Banger and Headbanger, his management/media company. Oddly though, Busy explained that the method behind starting Ed Banger Records was fairly straightforward. “I had no plan when I created Ed Banger records,” he told us, “I just wanted to share what I’ve learnt with Daft Punk. I wanted to new kids and their contemporary music.” As an understudy of Daft Punk, Winter was certainly taught well.

The originality of Ed Banger’s image is one of the major factors behind its success; this originality is contingent upon its balance of artistically driven music and musically driven art. Winter enlisted So Me as Ed Banger’s artistic director, and like Justice’s grinding synth lines and striking hi-hat stabs, So Me’s work has become one of the label’s instantly recognizable hallmarks. His vision for the cover Busy P’s ‘Rainbow Man’ E.P. is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Vitruvian Man’; a tip of the hat to Busy P, renaissance man in his own right.

Unsurprisingly, Busy P’s own work fits comfortably on Ed Banger. His latest E.P. ‘Rainbow Man’ was released at the end of February, and it is yet another example of the frenzied, distorted dance-thrash that Ed Banger has really perfected in the past few years. The title track hammers through its slow-motion jerks and thrusts with interminable persistence; sounding something like the Chemical Brothers “Block Rockin’ Beats”. Only drunk. And abusive.
