Jimmy Edgar, one of electronic music's most versatile and unique producers, has just shared another forward-facing double A-side single, comprised of “BE WITH YOU” (featuring the vocal talents of Mille Go Lightly) and the instrumental “ZIG ZAG”. The new singles arrive in the wake of Edgar’s recently released double drop of tracks featuring Danny Brown (“GET UP”) and SOPHIE (“METAL”), as well as his collaboration with Hudson Mohawke earlier this year. The bevy of recent material makes for an ever-expanding body of new music from the genre-bending, boundary-pushing artist as he works toward his next full length project, Cheetah Bend.
As Clash reports: “I met Millie Go Lightly passing by my Atlanta studio; I heard some amazing vocals coming out of the room and my engineer offered to introduce us,” remembers Edgar. “We laughed cause we were wearing the exact same color coordination and couldn’t get past that. I played her some sounds and she went in and freestyled everything on the spot just like the other ATL rap artists I work with. I love her story, too: she’s from London but lasered in on Atlanta and started working with Young Thug, all on a string of inspiration. We are aligned in the sense that she has this infectious confidence and talent to back it up.”
And as Line of Best Fit puts it: “‘ZIGZAG’ is an Autumn song from an animated cauldron where magical beings cast spells on you to confuse and disturb you, causing many distractions in your life moments.,” he continues. “When it finally opens to the end melodies you realize your own power and the only spells cast on you are the ones that you allow.”
