Pierre III is Pierre Leroux’s new avatar. He was the founding member of Housse de Racket with Victor Le Masne.
In 2020, he releases the « Cluster » critically acclaimed lockdown mixtapes. 2 x 20 minutes of instrumental, psychedelic, cinematographic music. A parenthesis and radical music, ostensibly walking away from the pop song format.
It’s followed by the 2021 summer « Menthol » EP. With its silky production, the EP is a charming, radio friendly, four-songs collection and a deep fresh breath of innocence for a highly anticipated summer.
In 2021, Pierre also composed the soundtrack for the french OCS TV show « Jeune & Golri » for which he received the award for the best music at 2021 Série Mania Festival.
The soundtrack is wonky, romantic and filled with references and playful synths. It sounds like an homage to 70’s movie soundtrack from Vladimir Cosma or François de Roubaix?
18 years ago, back in March 2003 in Montmartre north of Paris, Pedro « Busy P » Winter created Ed Banger records.
The revered roster (Justice, Uffie, DJ Mehdi, SebastiAn, BreakBot, Mr. Oizo, Myd, Feadz, Boston Bun…) and SO ME’s post-cartoon imaging are practically pop culture icons, especially within the world of new media (blogs, forums, social networks) where Ed Banger remains at the top of their game. MTV and Grammy awards winner, Ed Banger is one of the most respected French record label in the world.
