Travel To Techno Heaven With A New Mix From Jimmy Edgar

A supremely jacking all-vinyl mix from the Berlin expat techno don.

January 14, 2015

Berlin expat techno guy Jimmy Edgar cut his teeth as a scrappy club kid in Detroit, and since then he's weaved in and out of various genres—electro, funk, techno, straight-up house music—with ease. He's the latest artist to contribute to London club institution Fabric's Fabrliclive mix series, as his FABRICLIVE 79 sees release next week; to celebrate its imminent arrival, Edgar's put together a half-hour mix spun entirely on wax. "This is my first all vinyl mix in a few years and 2015 I will be doing a lot more digging since Ultramajic is concentrating on vinyl," Edgar told FADER in an email. (Ultramajic is his label, btw.) "For me, vinyl is a piece of history, a stamp in time that also changes with time. I find it fascinating going back to a physical format that has been played in so many different scenarios."
