    Jimmy Edgar Announces New EP, Label Launch, Special Projects

    Detroit’s Berlin-based Jimmy Edgar is on a mission to manifest dance culture on a level deeper than any bass can drop. Synthesizing his passions for esoteric philosophy and ‘90s club music, Edgar announces a new EP, label launch, and special projects with fellow multimedia mystics Machinedrum and Pilar Zeta.

    An alumni of vaunted electronic labels Warp, !K7 and Hotflush, Edgar teams with longtime friend and frequent collaborator Machinedrum (Travis Stewart) to launch a new label called Ultramajic. The two have been “deep telepathic friends” since their teen years when Stewart encouraged Merck Records to sign Jimmy based on a random CDR that found its way to the label in 1999. In addition to doing A&R for the new label, Stewart’s work with Edgar includes their side project JETS, as well as film and installation pieces.

    The new label’s first release is Edgar’s new EP, Hot Inside, out June 10th. Hot Inside struts with libidinous abandon and oozes supernatural essence. The title track opens Hot Inside with a filtered diva wail, cavernous beats, and warped techno grooves. “Shout” is a pulsating electro stomper, riddled with vocal loops, oscillating synths, and shuffling syncopation. “Strike” is a stripped down jacking track that soars into an infinite fade.

    “These tracks were started in South America when I was at Machu Picchu and on a sort of metaphysical adventure down there during December,” Edgar explains. Keeping his body music’s sensuous aura, Edgar intensifies his dancefloor focus, inspired by his extensive remix work and DJ gigs. “I'm booked every weekend this year on almost every continent.” In 2012, Edgar did over thirty remixes, including a Portishead edit he made hours before his Boiler Room set with Hotflush’s Scuba.

    Hot Inside will feature collaborative artwork with Pilar Zeta, a longtime creative partner. As part of Edgar’s complete experience concept, they are also releasing a metaphysical card deck based on the Law of One, a series of books allegedly cowritten by an extraterrestrial being. "We are very interested in the idea of ancient magick becoming a modern reality and merging it with art culture... We are invested in making these things relevant again and spiking some curiosity within young people."

    Hot Inside will be released on Ultramajic on June 10th. Jimmy Edgar is available for interviews now.
