Ed Banger head honcho Pedro Winter with an entertaining ride through the tracks that keep him going. Time to get busy!

Pedro Winter is a modern-day Malcom McLaren. Impresario and musician alike, this Parisian used to manage what is arguably the most influential dance music act since the ’90s, Daft Punk, before he started his own label Ed Banger Records in 2003. Since then, he’s shown the world that it’s still possible to successfully deal with music, pushing the careers of Justice, Uffie, and Mr. Oizo to iconic highs, while anticipating and shaping a colorful trend with the label’s instantly recognizable artwork. A mix of all things hip-hop, pop, electro, disco and rock, Ed Banger set the Vice magazine to music, putting back relentless fun and a barrel of laughs into the global club music scene. At the same time, Pedro has kept his creativity as a DJ, producer and remixer: he’s re-edited Kraftwerk classics, collaborated with West Coast indie rapper Murs, and played every relevant rave in the Western hemisphere and beyond.
