So Jimmy Edgar has a new album coming out. It’s called XXX, and will come out via !K7 on July 26.
The 26-year-old first came to the world’s attention with a string of releases for Warp Records back in the mid-noughties, beginning with the ‘Access Rhythm’ 12″ (2004) and culminating in the 2005 album Color Strip. Since 2006 Edgar has been more nomadic, releasing records on deep techno imprint Semantica and M-nus sub-label Items & Things, among others. XXX will be his first offering on !K7.
The album is largely a solo affair but Latvia’s Anet and XL-signed, New York-hailing R&B chanteuse Azealia contribute vocals to ‘Physical Motion’.
“Whenever I have worked with women and art, they have this way of putting balance into everything,” says Edgar, before reeling off a list of the driving forces behind XXX. “Celibacy. Love and Loss. A myriad of intense relationships. Home studio on mostly analog equipment, finished digitally. Some recorded on tape. Some recorded frustrated, sick, broke, pissed off, in love.”
And guess what, you can now hear a track from it. It’s called ‘Hot Raw Sex’, and it is both hot, raw and sexy. Oh yes.
