Jimmy Edgar is the model example of the multi-faceted modern artist. His resume seems nigh on impossible for a mere 26 year old: Warp-approved producer, avant-garde multi-instrumentalist, haute couture fashion photographer and industrial designer.
His live LED-infused performance has slayed crowds everywhere from Detroit's prestigious Movement Festival to Berlin's legendary Watergate.
With releases on Hotflush, Warp and !K7, Edgar is sure to provide an eclectic take of Detroit-infused future funk, drawing on influences as diverse as Kraftwerk, Prince and Egyptian Lover. The result is a fresh and palatable take on the time-honoured tropes of 80's electronic music, replete with stone cold vocoders and vintage pitch-bent synth stabs. Needless to say, tucked into Brunswick's intimate and cosy The B.East, this night is a must see.
