Jimmy Edgar's second album is where he struck gold, in my opinion. Not only is it infectiously funky the whole way through, it's also eminently listenable whether you're on a dancefloor or not.

There's a slick, assured quality to the production, yet also something marvellously old-school about it - and it's got that Detroit thang - in spades. The influences range effortlessly from motown, to Giorgio Moroder to Kraftwerk and George Clinton.

Exceptional. Can't understand why there isn't more love for this great, great album!

80s electro brought full-force into the future, via Jimmy Edgar's debut ablum, COLOR STRIP. Although the synth pads are totally 80s and are proud to sound that way, the production techniques scream out IDM. "Pret-a-Porter," for instance, mixes cut-up glitch editing with a smooth Detroit overlay. The pure sleaze of "My Beats" is so shamefully catchy that it could almost be a guilty pleasure. For night owl lotharios, "LBLB Detroit" might work as a post-modern replacement for Barry White. The beatless “Telautraux” has some shrill IDM-sounds layered over some long synth pads, and “Hold It, Attach It, Connect It” moves from ambience to rhythm gracefully. And while “Jefferson Interception” might not have a lot of meaning, it sure sounds good (though its quiet coda seems a bit tacked on). But the vibe remains fun and funky throughout. Ten years just isn’t enough for a good decade.
