Ten years after Daft Punk announced the arrival of French Touch – the invasion of mainly beat-led and sometimes filtered electronic music that spawned hits for everyone from Air to Zdar – a new wave of music is making Paris a hotbed of creation. The face behind this French revolution is Pedro Winter, aka BUSY P.
If you haven’t heard of Pedro Winter, you must hate electronic music, have no access to the internet, or else live in a cave! If this doesn’t apply to you, you will have listened to one of the many artists on his label Ed Banger Records maybe without even knowing it.
DJ, producer, art director, and boss of the Ed Rec label, Pedro “Busy P” Winter shifted from being an emblematic figure of the Parisian underground to the Frenchman who makes the whole World dance.
King of cool.
Fascinated by the 90’s Chicago illusion and 120 bpm tracks talking about pleasure and future, Boston Bun offers up his own vision of House Music. Steering clear of cliches and parodies, he’s simply creating a new universe, a new story for this genre.
Boston Bun’s first official remix came out in early 2012, on the Sound Pellegrino label. Bun transformed the Maelstrom ‘HOUSE MUSIC’ into a sexy sweaty backroom acid dance joint. The remix totally transcended all genres, and was played as much by Crookers as by Etienne Jaumet. At which point his talent as a remixer has been solicited by the likes of Myd, The Aikiu, Breakbot and Logo, among others.
That is until one of his remixes made it’s way to Pedro ‘Busy P’ Winter. The two decided to share a studio together, so they could experiment new sounds, talk about music and collaborate on the daily. During one of their sessions together Boston Bun made Pedro listen to his new demo, ‘HOUSECALL’ which quickly became the 66th release for Ed Banger Records. The EP breathes new life into the label slated to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary in 2013. ‘HOUSECALL’ is currently played and supported by Tiga, Brodinski, A-Trak, Duke Dumont, Erol Alkan, Daniel Avery, Laurent Garnier, and Surkin to name a few.
