Lover. Fighter. Prophet. Freak magnet. Time-traveler. Musician, photographer and designer Jimmy Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown’s DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music.
Jimmy Edgar will be celebrating the release of “XXX” @ LPR w/ a Ca$$ette Tag Team DJ Set Featuring MachineDrum/Sepalcure/Melo-X Elder Jepson on Wednesday, September 8th. To purchase tickets, click here!
