When Ed Banger Records announced their sensational collaboration with Swatch to celebrate thirteen years of French Touch talent, chart-topping releases, and banging live performances, we were nothing but excited. Immediately, we hoped the “IT’S ED BANGER TIME” mantra would return once again. And man, we were right.
The French label that brought us Justice, DJ Mehdi, Uffie, SebastiAn, and many more was ready to impress again, launching a worldwide anniversary tour and delivering all types of musical artifacts along the way. What really impressed us was the collection of Ed Banger Time playlists posted by the Parisian recording house throughout the tour:
- Ed Banger Time by Swatch – 12AM Playlist
- Ed Banger Time by Swatch – 3AM Playlist
- Ed Banger Time by Swatch – 6AM Playlist
- Ed Banger Time by Swatch – 8PM Playlist
Each playlist created its own vibe – from the nostalgic sounds of the 12AM playlist to the upbeat noises of the 3AM playlist, the sets entranced listeners from beginning to end. The 3AM playlist, in particular, caught our attention. Why? Well, musical maestro, Domenico Torti, brought his skills to the limelight, unveiling an eclectic remix of Cassius’s single, The Missing.
In less than four minutes, the disco-electronic act laid down a mixture of funky energy and soulful rhythms, while maintaining Cassius’s unique foundation. Don’t believe us? Just listen for yourself.
