After a two-year break, Detroit producer Jimmy Edgar debuts on Scuba's Hotflush Recordings armed with an album full of futuristic sleaze. Known for his unique take on jacking house and electro funk, recently he's been splitting his time between the U.S. and Berlin, exploring transcendental meditation and the boundaries of the non-physical. This offering is an extension of that journey, bringing 11 tracks of erotic robo-pop to the table. Titled Majenta, this LP is a departure from his past sound, marking a shift in his own ever-expanding consciousness, as well as another exciting chapter of his musical career. Each track is an aural manifesto, giving well-deserved nods to his varied musical influences. Close encounters with Detroit legends Derrick May and Juan Atkins, Jimmy's 2004 signing to Warp Records, and his early exposure to Kraftwerk have all acted as lynchpins in the cultivation of his sound. With a number of releases on Glasstable, Semantica, Nonplus, and album releases on both Warp and !K7, Majenta reflects Jimmy's evolution as both artist and child of the cosmos.
