Jimmy Edgar, the versatile genius that we all love. This is the name, you can never say no.This techno wizard is a renaissance man of talent, ideas, and style beyond his years, a LA-based Detroit native with a mischievous mystique has been a prolific artist and musician for two thirds of his enchanted life.
Sonically, Jimmy's fluent in a myriad of vernaculars, from "software as music" and glitchy underground Hip Hop to his signature glossy, erotically charged robot funk. Visually, he's established himself as an in-demand director, photographer, and multimedia artist with an impressive roster of videos, exhibits, and magazine work to his credit.
Born in 1983, Edgar was playing drums, keyboards, and saxophone, as well as experimenting with sound manipulation by the time he was an adolescent. To complement to his technical prowess, Edgar learned to play piano and "feel the music" in Detroit's Baptist churches. By the time he was 15, with help from a promoter friend, Edgar was spinning alongside hometown legends Atkins, May, and Saunderson in local strip clubs and raves. His early exposure to music, technology, spirituality, and seduction informed Edgar's creative impulses profoundly, and their confluence has become a recurrent motif in his work.
Edgar famously signed with influential Warp records at 18, and spent his early 20's recording and touring, winning audiences over with his dynamic stage presence and customized visual show. While at Warp, Edgar released 2004's Access Rhythm, a 4-track EP of blunted, left-field beats, and 2005's 6- track electro-sleaze EP Bounce Make Model. Jimmy's influences and techniques reached a breakthrough synthesis on 2006's LP Color Strip. Using a mix of custombuilt gear, and analog and digital instruments, Edgar created a scene-stealing sound that fused Minneapolis funk, California Hip Hop, and Euro Electro. Color Strip became an instant favorite with fans and critics alike.
In a breakout year highlighted by two EPs and an exhaustive global tour, the most significant shift in Jimmy Edgar’s life was the launch of his new enterprise, Ultramajic. Part record label, design house, and metaphysical portal, Ultramajic (created in 2013 and managed by Edgar and creative partner Pilar Zeta), alchemically melds music, design, objects, and installations into a holistic multi-sensory experience.
KOMA Machinetalk Jimmy Edgar Studio VisitUltramajic marks a milestone in Edgar’s independence as an artist and his emergence as an impresario. “Ultramajic is simply our venture to solidify what we do. The art of collaboration has been lost. In the ‘Age of the Internet,’ we have seen artists become pioneers unto themselves due to lack of communication, and I intend to bridge a bit of that gap with Ultramajic.”
In addition to Edgar’s own EPs Hot Inside and Mercurio, in 2013 Ultramajic released singles by ghetto dub artist Aden and Creepy Autograph. Ultramajic projects and releases in 2014 include the Silicone EP by Berlin-via-Miami bass producer Danny Daze, Chambray’s Rub, and Edgar’s new Saline EP.
Other labels Edgar has called home include Warp, where he signed at the age of 18, Poker Flat, who released his 2002 single “We Like You”; K7! who released 2010’s XXX EP, featuring floor-fillers “Hot Raw Sex” and “Turn You Inside Out”; and Scuba’s Hotflush imprint who released 2012’s Majenta EP that included the “Art of Noise meets Timbaland” track “In Deep”, and the “Prince meets Frankie Knuckles” burner “This One’s for the Children”. At an age when many artists are just coming into their own, Edgar is more secure in his artistic vision than ever. Most importantly, after years of shape-shifting into others' molds, Jimmy Edgar is now in full control.
