Just because 😀

SebastiAn was my favourite Ed Banger artist. The golden era of the label was 5-6 years ago (2007-ish) and how fresh and exciting every new release was back then, how dated is sounds now. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. Take for instance this track off the 3rd Ed Rec. comp. It sounds very agressive and in your face and thus typically Ed banger. The track is built from a sample of Walls Of Jericho’s 2004 song A Little Piece Of Me, so it’s a woman’s voice tearing your eardrums. The problem with SebastiAn is that he’s not really evolving: his ‘album’ was released in 2011 and had only a few new songs on it, all the rest was his previously released material, not what the world was waiting for. Nostalgic feelings still make me listen to this banger though…

Gopher used to play in Orange together with Dunckel and Godin from AIR. This track was released on Kitsuné and is one of my favorites on the label. Lately they seem to be choosin’ for the big money. But back to this track with its cool bleeps and acid feel. A-Trak used it for a cool song called Wampercycle on his Fool’s Gold label. He put a rather catchy hip hop vocal track by Slim Thug & Clipse on top and it works like a charm.

Ed Rec 3.

Ed Rec 3 was awesome.

Kinda like the groove of this hate-it-or-love-it song: dubsteppy beat and a cool motownish sample that’s mixed into a sort of duet between a sped up and slowed down bit. Apparently the sample comes from Sandra Richardson’s 1971 single I Feel A Song (In My Heart) released on Buddha Records and later covered by Gladys Knight & The Pips. Both worth a listen! Samples like these always work e.g. Justice, Daft Punk, Moby, Fake Blood and every other electronic producer in the universe. It’s also their first and probably a one-time release on the cool French label Ed Banger.
