ABOUT ED BANGER RECORDS

The rise of the label has been a worldwide phenomenon with artists touring at long-awaited, sold-out venues, and celebrated by thousands of kids from each and every part of the world.
Drawing on the street energy of hip hop, rock’s explosion and the hypnotic compression of techno music, has become a trademark, registered worldwide. The revered roster 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.
