Deconstructed Live: Pedro DJ Set

David Cooper’s Manchester-based Melodic imprint found favour with those looking for something more than breaks and bleeps out of their electronica music. Leading the charge at the label is James Rutledge, whose post-folk as Pedro having received props from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Badly Drawn Boy and Kathryn Williams in addition to considerable press support, Wax went as far to say that “if there was a God, his hand could well have touched this.”

He went on to record for the incredible Mush Records, dropped remixes for Bloc Party, the Whip, and a four-hour remix of Radiohead’s Video Tape, earning props from electronic/hip hop glitterati Danger Mouse, Four Tet, Hood, Kevin Shields, Prefuse 73, Andrew Weatherall and…Thom Yorke. Nice.
