Ed Banger honors 15th birthday with orchestral album + tribute to DJ Mehdi

Ed Banger is celebrating its fifteenth birthday in the most ethereal of fashions. Known for its leadership in French electro and its unique aesthetic, the label is taking things down a notch for its commemorative 15 Ans LP, which is entirely orchestral. The upcoming album — set for a November 23 release — is an explorative one, reimagining 27 of the label’s most iconic records in a cinematic, instrumental form.

Those who know the label know there’s no shortage of incredible music housed within the Busy P-owned imprint. In addition to groundbreaking albums from Daft Punk themselves (formerly managed by Busy P) as well as Justice, countless other major league acts like Mr. Oizo, Breakbot, SebAstian, and more have continued to make new waves in their field. The aforementioned artists are featured heavily in the album, in addition Uffie’s “Pop The Glock,” “Jacques In The Box” by Laurent Garnier, and other newer releases from the label family.

DJ Mehdi, who passed away in 2011, is another key featured talent on 15 Ans. His famed “Pocket Piano” happened to be chosen by Busy P as the announcement piece for the LP, whose celebration concert took place earlier in the year.
