Though you'd think the glitchy ambience of Kristuit Salu or the electro hip-hop of Morris Nightingale would be diametrically opposed, but Jimmy Edgar brings them together in an appealing way. Indeed, the personas bleed into one another, with the beats and chopped-up samples finding their way into the more granular Salu compositions (such as "Êthno-cen" or "Non Stop (Yàmi)," and the warm synths intruding into the more bouncy Nightingale tracks. Certainly, the Nightingale pieces sound more of a piece with Edgar's later release for Warp, but his sensibilities are on full display here. The lush synths on "Anata Wo Ai Site Imasu" drift in outer space, and "Rastic Chevch" crashes it back into the beat. Quite nice.

Kristuit Salu and Morris Nightingale: both of Jimmy Edgar's alter egos, fight against each other in this wonderful debut album on Merck. Kristuit Salu is in the Glitch Ambient side while Morris Nightingale seems to have adopted a more Glitch-Hop style. As of Machine Drum, another great artist on the same label, Jimmy Edgar follows the beat with some revolutionary IDM influenced Hip-Hop. Each beautifully mixed "half" of the release is a great experience to listen and be sure that "My Mines I" really changed something in its experimental sub-genre. The fact that Edgar released this album when he was 18 years old really proves how genius he is and he deserves to have released music on Warp Records later amongst these innovative artists.

Clicks and Cuts, mixed with melodies and beats are the peices of this pie. The real question I grapple with is if I like Kristuit Salu or Morris Nightingale more....Salu is glitchy while Nightingale is melodic and more on the hip hop side. The more I listen the more I like..
