Jimmy Edgar - Midnite Fone Call
Hotness. A few minutes into XXX, I was overwhelmed with the urge to throw on something velour and cruise to wherever the sexy's at while some Roger Troutman voicebox action blared from my ride. Detroit's Jimmy Edgar specializes in music heavy on eliciting that kind of effect on people. Weaving together everything from Zapp funk leanings through to Sebastian Tellier sextronics, we're treated to a hotbed of synths, layered galactic textures and neon rhythms. This is the kinda record I think rappers from 2030 will rediscover and use as a basis for a whole new genre.
