THIS ONE’S FOR THE CHILDREN
Detroit-based Jimmy Edgar, purveyor of sexed-up electro-funk, has just signed with the forward-thinkers of Hotflush in preparation for his first release in almost two years. March 17 will see the release of a new single, “This One’s For The Children,” via Hotflush, with an LP slated for release later this spring.
Previously put out on Warp and !K7, Edgar’s beats ooze weekend debauchery and blown-out flash photography, combining diverse influences from Detroit’s own laurelled techno scene and his new home-away-from home, Berlin. The single will have a digital promo release soon, but in the meantime get reacquainted with Edgar’s old video for his Zapp And Roger-esque tune “New Touch” below.
Also, Jimmy Edgar has a new live show utilizing synchronized LED lights. Dates worldwide in 2012, quite a visual spectacle.
