Folded Wing’s next documentary ‘D.A.N.C.E.O.N – The Story of Ed Banger Records’ is aired next Monday 17 September at 9pm on BBC Radio 1.
Before then we thought we’d let you see behind the scenes of the making of the documentary. We went to Paris to meet Ed Banger’s founder Pedro Winter, aka. Busy P, to find out the real story behind the label.
At the offices we also met Ed Banger’s DJ Feadz who let us in on some secrets about his ex-girlfriend and label mate Uffie.
Ed Banger’s Art Director So-Me drew a great piece of artwork exclusively for the programme in his usual colourful style.
Then to round up the visit in true Ed Banger style, we went to a club night called Reverie where Ed Banger DJs Mr Oizo and Feadz battled it out with Boys Noize Records.
The next day we caught up with Radio France’s Laura Leishman to find out her anecdotes from the club night.
The Story of Ed Banger Records is presented by Annie Mac and produced by Andrea Rangecroft. It also features interviews with Erol Alkan, Todd Terry, A-Trak and Sebastien Tellier.
As well as the documentary, Annie Mac has an Ed Banger minimix from Busy P on her show this Friday.
You can also listen to clips from the documentary below.
