Jimmy Edgar bio:
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 such Motor City luminaries as Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson & Derrick May 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’. Now 26, Edgar is shaking things up at German beat boutique !K7. The new album ‘XXX’ is out at the end of June and its New Jack Swing winks as much at Minneapolis, Compton and Paris as it does Detroit or Berlin.
