“Detroit experimentalist and texture king Jimmy Edgar is the kind of producer that opens a doorway in your mind.” - BILLBOARD

"A full-dive into his hybridised vision of modern hip-hop — a world where shape-shifting, liquid-metal Cyberdyne Systems beats are clothed in the fur coat of virtuoso West Coast funk." - DJ MAG (named CHEETAH BEND Album of the Month)

“Assisted by like-minded electronic vanguards like Hudson Mohawke and the late, great visionary SOPHIE, Edgar expands on the sound he’s established while working in the hip-hop world over the last several years.” - BANDCAMP

“Confident, bold and head-turning music” - CRACK

“No one does music like JIMMY EDGAR. He’s constantly explore new sounds and throwing everything we thought we knew about music into the wind, and we absolutely love it. We’ve been tracking this forward-thinking wizard as he’s steadily rolled out single after single, and today that work comes to a head with the release of his new album, CHEETAH BEND.” - THIS SONG IS SICK

 

Nick Waterhouse x Valentine's Day

Nick Waterhouse unveils a Valentine's Day weekend release "Very Blue / Medicine" both from the upcoming album Promenade Blue (April 9th). 

As Under The Radar reports: "LA-based singer/songwriter Nick Waterhouse sounds like a man out of time, almost as if he was transported straight from the ‘50s and ‘60s era he takes such deep influence from. Melding together strains of soul, jazz, R&B, and garage rock, Waterhouse, over the course of several albums, has hit on a tight vintage style, putting a modern twist on sounds of the past. On his fourth album, Promenade Blue, Waterhouse once again looks into the past, but this time rooted in his own life and memories, from career highs and lows to loves lost and found. Waterhouse has returned with two new singles from the project, “Very Blue” and “Medicine,” premiering with Under the Radar. "

JIMMY EDGAR x NOTICE

Jimmy Edgar has shared “NOTICE,” a new single featuring Atlanta rapper 24HRS, from his fast impending new solo album CHEETAH BEND (out on February 26 via Innovative Leisure). Recorded in Atlanta, the cosmic R&B tune pulls hook friendly chants from 24HRS over the silk laden waves of Jimmy’s Detroit-inspired hot beats. One of music's most versatile producers, Jimmy Edgar is drawing on both his vibrant discography as a producer on the bleeding edge of electronic music (including collaborations with Hudson Mohawk and Machinedrum) as well as his increasing presence in rap circles (including recent productions for Dawn Richards, Vince Staples, OG Maco, and more) to craft a wholly unique sonic space.


CHEETAH BEND is a stunning synthesis of what might seem like disparate styles, unspooling fresh perspectives and glistening sound design that flaunts rules while respecting genre spirit. “The value I bring is hybridization,” Jimmy explains of his approach. “I think about different universes of sound coming together to create an entirely new domain of knowing.” The culmination of a catalog brimming with high points, CHEETAH BEND rewards fans who’ve gladly stuck with him over the years, and invites a new batch of listeners to dive into his world.

Nick Waterhouse x Place Names

As Clash reports, Nick Waterhouse unveils a new single, "Place Names," from his upcoming album Promenade Blue.  Waterhouse explains: "'Place Names' is the song I have been writing my entire life.  I wanted to figure out a way to astrally project the listener into all the places and pathways - metropolitan or naturalistic - I could.  Look up at the light of a big sky against a hillside city dotted with lights, the sea rising before you, the street unfolding as you climb up from the subway stairs, all in some dreamy place filled with promise and wisdom it can deliver to you.  Then remember everyone who ever brought beauty into your own life."  Promenade Blue is due out on April 9th, 2021.  Pre-order it here.

JIMMY EDGAR x PAUSE

Following years of collaborations and production for others, JIMMY EDGAR makes his return to solo work with his new album CHEETAH BEND, due out on February 26 via Innovative Leisure, the label also responsible for his recent J-E-T-S output with Machinedrum. Recorded over the past few years in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, and beyond, it draws as much upon his vibrant 15+ year discography as a producer on the bleeding edge of electronic music as it does his burgeoning ubiquity in rap circles. Coming eight years after Majenta, the album improbably synthesizes what might seem like disparate styles, unspooling fresh perspectives and glistening sound design that flaunts genre rules while respecting genre spirit. “The value I bring is hybridization,” Jimmy explains of his approach. “I think about different universes of sound coming together to create an entirely new domain of knowing.”  Check out the latest single, "PAUSE," from the upcoming album with features Matt Ox.
