Jimmy Edgar

Color Strip

Jimmy Edgar - Color Strip

After two eclectic electroid ep's for Warp, Edgar comes forward with Colorstrip, his debut long player. Still marked by insane programming skills and ultra melodic synthesizer touches, the scalpel-sharp tunes on ''Colorstrip'' are pure hip shakers. Like Timbaland producing Metro Area under the watchful eye of Carl Craig, these are dance tunes that you can hum as you gyrate. What may strike those who thought that had Jimmy and his music pegged is that Colorstrip is a deadly pop album. The tracks here are a sinister and mysterious set of dark R&B with Juan Atkins like vocals added in perfect places, mammouth synth hooks and plenty of sub bass.
