Today, Ed Banger has announced they will be releasing a 27-track orchestral album titled '15 Ans' - a celebratory anniversary album that reimagines seminal Ed Banger releases from the past 15 years.
Dropping on November 23, the album features a medley of Ed Banger favorites, including tracks from Justice, Mr. Oizo, SebastiAn, Breakbot, Busy P and more. All the tracks are reimagined and interpreted with the help of the 70-seat Lamoureux Orchestra.
To announce the release, Ed Banger has shared a video of the Orchestra performing the late DJ Mehdi's track 'Pocket Piano.' Featured on his seminal LP 'Lucky Boy', the first album ever released on Ed Banger which came out 10 years ago today, the label hails the 'Pocket Piano' as a track which "highlighted an electronic shift in DJ Mehdi's career."
Back in March, Mixmag attended Ed Banger's orchestral 15 year anniversary celebration at the Le Grand Rex concert hall in Paris. Read more about it by going here
