"Pedro Winter, or Busy P as he's known to the world, is the manager/DJ/label boss/daddy behind Justice's success. As the leader of the fearless Ed Banger Records, Winter has brought through some of the most popular acts on the planet and he's not showing any sign of letting up.
Daft Punk were managed by a young Pedro and could be his most celebrated project to date, but saying that would be a disservice to the other incredible artists he's championed. Mr Oizo, Cassius, Breakbot and SebastiAn have all seen their careers catapult via Ed Banger and newer acts like Boston Bun, Borussia and Fulgeance all look set to propel in a similar trajectory.
But what about the man himself? Not only is he one of the most skilled A&Rs in the world, he's also a badass DJ and producer, as anyone who's seen him play or heard his sets knows. Tracks like 'Rainbow Man' and 'Pedrophilia' lit up dancefloors when the electro revolution was in full swing before the turn of the decade and his recent Ed Banger House Parties are becoming a staple of the festival and worldwide clubbing circuits.
Style wise, his Club 75 and Ed Banger brands are as cool as you can fucking get, with collaborations tied in with Swatch, Stussy and even The Simpsons. They're some of the hottest music merch items you can get your hands on, natch. - Mixmag
