Speaking to NME, the Ed Banger founder reflects on Justice’s contributions to the label over the years, before revealing his excitement for the pair’s upcoming record, which he says gives him the same goosebumps as their 2007 debut Cross.
“Ed Banger wouldn’t be as it is without them. And I believe they wouldn’t be as big either if Ed Banger wasn’t there,” Winter muses.
“Listening to ‘Cross,’ I had goosebumps – I loved each and every note of this record, and I have goosebumps when I’m listening to the forthcoming  Justice album, too.”
“I can only be proud as a manager to work with a band that is pushing the boundaries and innovating like them. We are celebrating the 20 years of Ed Banger, but we are also celebrating 20 years of Justice.”
For fans, it’s been a 7-year wait since Justice’s last full-length album i.e. 2016’s Woman.
The band’s label, which paved the way for electronic stars like Daft Punk, Mr Oizo and Breakbot, also celebrates its 20-year anniversary this year.
During in the interview, Winter also looks back on the near-collaboration between Breakbot and global popstar Bruno Mars, saying “If I could redo it, I would have loved Breakbot to be involved [in ‘Treasure’] and to enjoy worldwide success.”
“But it’s never too late – if Bruno wants to work with Breakbot, he can call us!”
