Pedro(James Rutledge)在19歲時曾經和同學組過玩奏Post-rock的樂隊Dakota Oak Trio,而深受hip hop、60s folkmodern classical、free jazz psychedelics and early electronic music這些音樂的影響以至James用了Pedro這代號開始創作。

"Early Pedro"如字面翻譯早期的Pedro,但它並不是一張撈錢的精選輯,這是Pedro集結他在1999年"Pedro EP"、2001年"Chapel Was My Dream"和2002年"Pedro vs Kathryn Willams EP" 等早期未收錄在專輯內的合輯。碟內如"Lay Dwon Mega Man"找來了Prefuse 73助陣為此曲注入了深層的hip hop節拍,聽見"Chapel Was My Dream" & "Hoop"這兩首曲子會發現Psapp也深受其影響同樣帶有如孩童敲擊的碎拍鍵盤聲。而"D.A.R.Y.L"的電子化White Noise卻有誤進電影Lost In Translation的感覺,就連Danger Mouse, Fennesz, Four Tet, Hood, Kevin Shields, Prefuse 73, Andrew Weatherall and Thom Yorke等人也都大力讚賞背書掛保證。

如果說Four Tet替Folktronica開啟一個重要的里程碑,那替melodic建立起Folktronica標竿並與Four Tet合作過且風格相近的Pedro你一定不能不認識。
