Jimmy Edgar Unleashes New EP, ‘Shine’


Jimmy Edgar continues to carry the Detroit spirit further into the future with the release of a new EP. Over the years, Edgar has made records for a wide array of impressive imprints, from Warp and Hotflush to !K7, but in 2013 he launched his own label, Ultramajic, and his creativity shows no signs of slowing down. On September 18, Ultramajic will unleash a new five-track EP (if you count the “digital exclusive” cut “Tik Tok” which is worth going the download route in and of itself) entitled Shine.

The press materials for the upcoming EP engage in some highfalutin’ talk about “mystic philosophy” and “metaphysical embodiment,” whatever that may mean, but to these ears it simply sounds like Edgar doing what he’s best at, which ought to be enough for anybody. House, minimalism, and more collide within these cuts, all drenched in the kind of Motor City flavor that’s second nature to Edgar. So keep an eye out, whether you’re in the market for metaphysical embodiment or merely a fresh batch of banging tracks.

1. Let Me Tell U
