Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding since he was a teenager. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity, Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown’s DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music.
In 2001 at the tender of 18, his hyper-sexed microchip stylings caught the ear of Warp, where he cranked out his brand of amped-up laptop funk for the next eight years, culminating in the full-length classic ’Color Strip’. XXX (released July 2010 on !K7) with its New Jack Swing winked as much at Minneapolis, Compton and Paris as it does Detroit or Berlin.
On March 17 Jimmy Edgar released his first new material in nearly two years, and his debut for Hotflush, MAJENTA, with the single “This One’s For The Children”. Jimmy toured his white hot live show featuring synced LED strips through 2012, 2013 is all about his slamming house / techno / electronic DJ sets.
