It seems as though any creative endeavour Jimmy Edgar takes on is simply fated to work—big time. From his color-flashy airbrush creations, to the fun modular sounds he wires together, there’s no denying that the Detroit-born turned Berlin-based producer works hard around the clock. His EP , Mercurio, comes as the third release from the club-centered label, Ultramajic, which he co-runs with Travis Stewart (the other half of the JETS project). With a trifecta of dance tracks this good, you’ll feel like Christmas came early this year.
“Ultraviolet” is the modular giant that is tuned to get the party going in pure J. Edgar style. Here he flexes his synthesis ability and makes it the focal-point of the track. Listening to this will automatically add radiant color to your life. Seriously. “Qlinda” reminds me of a former and—at times even—futuristic Edgar sound. As he slows things down and implements the diva-vocal samples that yell “Feel Gooood”, it’s hard to feel any other way. It’s the track title, however, that takes the cake at the end. “Mercurio” is a party anthem that should be in everyone’s work out playlist. Jittery and full of bounce, this’ll keep you moving ‘til the last beat.
