JIMMY EDGAR - DJ SET (Hotflush, Warp) Berlin
Lover. Fighter. Prophet. Freak magnet. Time-traveler. Musician, photographer and designer Jimmy Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. 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.
Influenced mostly by Jazz, funk, street beat and r&b in these early years, he began his musical pursuit by playing the drums in experimental bands and by making tape recordings. Most of these recordings, consisting mainly of pitch bent tape loops, cut edits, field recordings, and noise tracks, were the beginning of his experimentation with the technical aspects of production.
Nowadays Jimmy Edgar resides in Berlin. This Detroit-born producer/singer’s music often evokes the ambience of a city where the weekends can last all week and sex swings form part of legitimate club-going practice. Since moving to the city and putting out his recent LP “Majenta” on Hotflush, the producer’s embrace of techno’s second birthplace appears complete.
