“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



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.
