Live at Dimensions Festival 2012
Recorded at Dimensions Festival in Pula Croatia
Detroit United States
The multi-talented Jimmy Edgar brings his sleazy Detroit electro funk to Croatia’s Dimensions Festival.
Like many people starting out with limited technical possibilities and a seemingly unlimited amount of ideas, _(artist-name)Jimmy Edgar_ moved from the tape loops, field recordings and beats of his youth to a style entirely his own. True, the gritty funk and techno of his hometown Detroit shine through, but they are made to feel at home with everything from jazz through Chicago house to traces of punk (as much in spirit as in sound). The result is future-minded electronic music that has made sense on labels like Warp, Hotflush, Nonplus, and, most recently, !K7. Since then he has moved on to be involved in an amazing variety of projects, from fashion photography to an album project with _(artist-name)The Beta Band_’s Steve Mason to a long list of half-confirmed or rumoured musical collaborations.
