Following on from 2006's digital-only 'Volume 1', Ed Rec 'Volume 2' brings together the cream of the Ed Banger artists. Ed Banger Records was founded in 2003. The idea was to give unknown artists a chance. The music must be modern, not only electronic. Labels like Mo'Wax in UK and Versatile in France influenced what Ed Banger would be.
It all started with the futuristic hip hop sound of Mr Flash in 2003. 'Radar Rider' was the label's first release. While everybody was competing for big room club anthems, Ed Banger were into bringing back freshness and fun. On the b-side of this 12", long time friend Zdar (of Motorbass/Cassius) offered to the label a piece of spaced-out rap beat, which could have been perfect for Ludacris or Busta!
At the end of 2003, two Justice kids came along and they put out Justice vs Simian 'Never Be Alone (We Are Your Friends)'. This record opened the doors of cool clubs, smart record shops and good taste stereos. On the b-side was DJ Mehdi's supa class remix from Versatile's Chateau Flight. DJ Mehdi is the missing link between hip hop and electro. He found the name of the label and his album 'Lucky Boy' was the first album release on Ed Banger Records. Uffie is the last artist signed to the label. Arriving from nowhere, Feadz and Mr Oizo supply the beats while she screams at the boys.
