Ed Banger Records commemorates watershed 15th anniversary with orchestral collection
Ed Banger Records has summoned a most lustrous lineup for their milestone 15th year in rotation, with symphonic assistance from fellow Frenchmen, the 70-piece Orchestre Lamoureux.
Including sightings from Ed Banger emblems like Mr. Oizo, Justice, and longtime label-head, Busy P, the album, Ed Banger 15 Ans, is an instrumental conflation of some of the labels most celebrated tracks, performed entirely sans electronic equipment. Busy P enlisted his aptly adept comrade and accomplished film score composer, Thomas Roussel to conduct the album’s performance at the Parisian Grand Rex this past March.
To accompany the momentous release, Ed Banger has mashed up some of the label’s most memorable video releases, with the visually retrospective “I Want My Ed Tv,” which includes clips from Busy P’s own “Genie,” Boston Bun‘s “Paris Groove,” and Justice’s “Fire,” with the tracks’ respective audio paired accordingly. The album is now widely available across streaming platforms, with limited edition vinyl and CD/digital versions also available for purchase.
