Jimmy Edgar is a creative entrepreneur; founder and designer of e fa min fashion. graphic designer.musician. producer.
Regarded as a multi-generation leader of his local Detroit electronic scene, the 22 year old Jimmy is oft mentioned in the same breath as artists like Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Derrick May, Dopplereffekt and Drexciya, from where the baton is passed.
Wise beyond his years? After two eclecticbass slammin’ EPs for Warp, Edgar has readied ‘Colorstrip’, his debut long player. Still marked by Edgar’s 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.
In order to pursue his creative interests, Jimmy managed to skip college and freelance, and study graphic design whilst doing internships. His hand has not only extended to media design and photography, but also fashion, where his fashion label e fa min has been up and running for a year incorporating womenswear, menswear, accessories and perfume and is about to launch their Autumn / Winter ‘06 range. It’s all part of the Jimmy Edgar ethos, as represented in look, sound and design.
