Jimmy Edgar reveals his New Touch
Future electro sleaze funkateer par excellence Jimmy Edgar makes a welcome return to music releasing action later this month with a single taken from last year’s under rated XXX album backed with some neat remix action.
“New Touch” was a definite highlight of the Detroit born producer’s third album – reviewed here – with a vocoder heavy panache that Chromeo could learn a thing or two from. It’s certified single material and Edgar himself is amongst the remixers with a Hard Makeover that adds some noirish arpeggiated electro menace to proceedings.
In addition fellow Detroit native Axion Crux steps up with a remix that slows the track down and adds a punishing industrial flex, whilst perhaps most excitingly Luckyme’s Montreal based wunderkid Jacques Greene adds to his growing reputation with a shuffling future house refix that bristles with dancefloor pressure.
Jimmy Edgar will release New Touch on !K7 on January 25.
