One of the most singular artists in modern electronic music, Jimmy Edgar is as precocious as he is multi-talented.

Having played a plethora of instruments growing up in Michigan, he signed to Warp Records at just 18 years of age, where his dazzling fusion of IDM, techno, and sharp yet psychedelic electro made his name one of the most frequently dropped in music circles.

Since then, he’s released on labels including Hotflush, !K7 and his own Ultramajic (which he runs with Machinedrum), forging a sound that’s part futuristic, part Prince-esque raunchiness, and part wild experimental techno, whilst collaborative projects like JETS have seen him spread his creative wings ever further.
