DJ We’re Dying to See Come to Vegas

Busy P

Unless you’re keen to the electronic music scene, many Americans haven’t heard of Busy P. The French DJ, also known as Pedro Winter, is the owner of Ed Banger Records, which has released tracks for notable Euro bangers such as Justice, Uffie, Simian and the late DJ Mehdi. The DJ/producer cannot only be thanked for creating and distributing the music that has shaped electro-house, but he also managed Daft Punk during its peak years (1996-2008). An incredible performer, Busy P played 2008’s Fabulous Festival in Vegas alongside Deadmau5 and Crystal Castles. It’s been three years since then, and we say it’s time for the busy producer to return this electronic mecca on the rise and show us how the French do.
